Today, we offer a full breadth of digital marketing services, including social media and mobile. We strive to connect our clients’ brand messaging with their targeted customers and prospects and engage them at the deepest levels.

Regarding social media specifically, we launched a dedicated practice in 2010. Named Social Oxide, it operates as a family of cross-functional teams consisting of:

  • Creative and content
  • Public relations
  • Media
  • Digital and technology professionals

The practice is focused on delivering social media ideas and solutions that further our clients’ strategic goals and priorities. We don't propose social strategy and tactics just because they are new or we think they are cool.

We advocate that brands:

  • Need to think more like publishers adopting a content marketing philosophy
  • Follow a “social by design” philosophy, strategically fusing consumer insights with social engagement strategies and tactics to drive content virality and increase brands’ social currency
  • Integrate social media plans into broader marketing efforts
  • Actively listen to social media conversations to operate effectively in the social media realm

Finally, we believe that technical knowledge of social platform mechanics is equally important in the success of content marketing efforts. Understanding the technical aspects of social networks allows us to achieve the greatest reach and engagement for our clients' content.

We are recognized throughout the world as a leader in providing cutting-edge legal advice on matters that are redefining practices and industries.

But the Morrison & Foerster name tells only part of our story. In the 1970s, when teletype was used to send overseas cables, the firm purposely chose "mofo" as our teletype address. The nickname stuck, and we later decided to use it as our IP address.

In many ways, the MoFo nickname is an affectionate reminder that while we are very serious about our clients' work, we don't take ourselves too seriously.

We collaborate across a global network of 17 offices located in key technology and financial centers in the United States, Asia, and Europe. Our clients include some of the largest financial institutions, Fortune 100 companies, and leading technology and life sciences companies. We also represent investment funds and startup companies, and over the years have supported many in their growth and development as leading industry players and household brands.

Combining the deep insight of established experts with the entrepreneurial spirit of an up-and-comer, our fun, independent culture allows us to excel strategically, think holistically, explore creatively, work nimbly, and continually attract and enlist strategic thinkers from a variety of fields.

We excel at listening, and putting ourselves in the shoes of our clients’ audiences: examining where the conversation is headed and determining how to best engage on our client’s behalf, while also serving audiences with content they want and need.  We embrace innovation, with an entrepreneurial drive and creative mind-set that breeds more possibilities and, arguably, more solution sets – like Audience Experience and Comedy Experience – than any other independent communication firm in the world. We have deep expertise, steeped in the ins and outs of the five sectors in which we operate. We provide hands-on involvement, with senior-level management on every team: bringing experience, skills, and expertise unmatched by other agencies of similar size.

Most of all, we’re about fun. Firms often boast about their culture, but we take fun to a higher plane by training each and every employee in stand-up comedy. Comedy training has, in turn, created a staff with a self-deprecating sense of humor – which means that, while we take your business (and our own business) very seriously, we don’t take ourselves seriously at all. It’s a secret ingredient our competitors can’t hope to match because, well, they take themselves too seriously.

Comedy training does more than create a unique culture. It produces a better business executive, someone who is just a tad ahead of their peers when it comes to listening skills, building audience rapport, and thinking in a nanosecond. Happy, funny employees are also the reason why we maintain so many long-term client relationships, experience low turnover, and produce amazing creativity. And that’s no joke.

She’s bold, she likes to stand out, she breaks the rules, she chooses nail color to please herself—not others. Recognize yourself? So have untold and ever-growing numbers of other women. It’s why they’ve become passionate devotees of SinfulColors. They know and love that we’re a decidedly different beauty brand. One that reflects their unique personality, fashion sense and desires to a tee.

Our story starts in 1991, when a team of visionary beauty experts developed SinfulColors for professional beauty stores. Their ability to anticipate the next “now” colors made an instant splash. In no time, SinfulColors spread its on-trend color appeal through retail stores and across the country. With vivid shades that pop, wow, flatter and inspire. In cream, glitter, shimmer and matte, and in formulas you want that provide full color coverage. All made in the USA, with the quality you expect from a leading nail brand, without formaldehyde, toluene and DBP.

But what also makes SinfulColors such a runaway favorite is that our nail polishes are incredibly affordable. From the get-go, SinfulColors’ founders didn’t believe you had to charge an arm and a leg to produce and deliver show-stopping color. At a price as low as $1.99, SinfulColors makes putting the glitz on your nails a steal, not a splurge. Nails with bling are an easy and quick way to create your own look: the fabulous value SinfulColors offers (plus our huge variety of shades!) allows you to easily change your color to match your mood or look any time, any day. And with an unheard-of up to 20 new collections every year, all featuring the moment’s and season’s hottest colors, SinfulColors gives you even more reasons to make a statement about who you are.

The world has taken notice: SinfulColors consistently wins kudos from beauty editors writing in top beauty and fashion magazines. You can see us featured in runways shows and at major social events. And our presence is growing in the U.S. and abroad, from Europe to Asia.

Thanks to SinfulColors fans like you, we’ve become the top name in affordable nail polish. Look for more excitement and products ahead, from the brand with the colors you crave at a price you’ll love.

All kids—no matter where they live, how much money their parents make, or what their skin color is – deserve access to a great education. But in our country today, low-income children do not have the same access to a great education as their wealthier peers. It’s not easy to close this gap, but hundreds of proof points show that it’s possible. It takes committed leaders in our classrooms today who will continue to fight for students tomorrow. Teach For America’s mission is to build the movement to eliminate educational inequity by developing such leaders.

  • We recruit committed recent college graduates and professionals of all backgrounds to teach for two years in urban and rural public schools
  • We train and develop these corps members so that they have an immediate positive impact on their students
  • We foster the leadership of our alumni as they address this problem from all sectors

These efforts are focused on ending educational inequity in this country.

An idea that was hatched while Tim F. McCarthy was working for a restaurant has proven to have an impact on many restaurants, CPG companies and retailers.

While on staff in the marketing department of a restaurant chain, McCarthy recognized an opportunity to market to consumers at their workplace. In 1988, he left the restaurant to pursue this unique business concept, forming WorkPlace Media, Inc.

WorkPlace Media quickly grew in size and success, receiving numerous awards including Inc. Magazine's Marketing Masters Award. The company forged relationships with more than 100 national and regional brands across several industry segments. Nearly two decades later, McCarthy sold more than 80% of his interests to a private equity firm.

Fast forward to 2013. Tim P. McCarthy, son of founder Tim F. McCarthy, assumes control of WorkPlace Media and renames the firm to WorkPlace Impact to outwardly reflect the spirit of what his father began—offering fun, exciting and unique opportunities for companies to make an impact with valuable consumer-at-work audiences.
