Corporate Counsel – Best Legal Departments 2013

The editorial team at Corporate Counsel Magazine, a specialty brand of The American Lawyer, needed a photographer comfortable with creating a flattering and balanced group shot of 5 or 6 litigators for the Cover Art of the annual Best Legal Departments of the Year issue plus an inside spread featuring the entire legal department. The creative team wanted the covers to be contemporary and approachable while remaining respectful to status of these top corporate litigators.

The mood board was built on existing magazine covers of group shots that would compliment each subject and connect the cover art, inside spread and individual portraits together.
