PR for Law firms - public relations agency London


Public Relations support for the legal sector


Our proposition is straightforward… if you get better known you will win more clients, and Kelso Consulting is here to ensure this happens quickly. 

We do this through a combination of securing high-impact coverage for law firms in the national media, combined with helping them turn this coverage into leads and ultimately clients.

We have been doing this with law firms for 20 years’ continuously so, as you would expect, Kelso Consulting's PR team has strong knowledge of the legal sector, law firms and barristers' chambers.

In addition, our team member Katy Dowell until recently held senior roles at The Lawyer magazine meaning, amongst other things, she has an in-depth knowledge of the sector not least from having interviewed hundreds of partners in just about every significant firm over the past eight years. Read her blog posts here.

However, while we have a strong knowledge of the legal sector, we also bring fresh perspectives too from our work with a wide range of other professions as well as financial and technology businesses. We also have all extensive experience of working with suppliers to the legal sector looking to get into the legal press and other media influential with lawyers, with clients ranging from forensic accountants and technology companies to presentation coaches and litigation funders.

Helping you stand out from your competitors:

A big part of our approach is ensuring you stand out distinctively and authoritatively compared to the wide range of competing legal commentators. This includes helping law firms create and deliver successful “thought leadership” campaigns, which is an area where we have won four national awards.  In fact, we have written the book on this, and it’s available on Amazon.

The benefits of a boutique:

As a law firm you give your clients great service and, rightly expect the same.  By working in partnership with us, your firm will benefit from our boutique approach guaranteeing you receive direct support from a highly experienced team. In fact, you will rarely deal with anyone with less than 15 years’ experience, and generally you will be dealing with PR professionals with a lot more!

In short… we have a strong track record of getting great results for law firms and if you are looking at using a PR agency for your law firm, we’d like you to click here to get in touch so we can call you at a convenient time to discuss your requirements.  But don’t worry, it will just be a conversation: we won’t pester you afterwards with lots of unwanted sales calls!
