Public relations is a powerful marketing tool for any business, providing both media buzz and marketing support that can be focused either in a regional or national level. However, for solicitors, PR is a particularly important marketing tool.
The legal industry is expanding; as crime in the UK increases and the population increases, the call on legal services is growing year on year. The number of solicitors in the UK is growing at 4 times the rate of the population (as mentioned in the Guardian newspaper in May 2011), going up from 60,000 (in 1992) to over 120,000 (in 2010). As with any industry, as it gets more competitive there is the need to use marketing in order to stand out.
As competition grows in the legal industry, the need to get the marketing wheels turning is ever more important. PR for solicitors is an effective and powerful marketing tool to get them the right exposure to ensure they stand out in the ever growing legal crowd.
The UK has a wide variety of PR agencies, from small boutique agencies up to global PR firms in London that work with top brands. For solicitors, choosing a PR firm that has legal experience is not only logical, but is essential to ensuring the PR campaign runs effectively and is yielding rewards.
