A double-page spread feature focusing on a specific jurisdiction which can (but doesn’t have to) coincide with a STEP Journal focus. This can be in the form of an infographic or a sponsored article which we would edit and design in the style of the STEP Journal.

Leader Insight

An interview with a prominent person within your firm, which will be designed as a double-page spread in the STEP Journal. The interview offers your firm a fantastic opportunity for STEP members to get to know this person and what makes your firm unique. Questions asked will be tailored to each firm, but the idea is to go into greater depth than a regular quick interview.
