The intricacies of legal directory submissions

Submitting to legal directories may seem like a daunting task. Gathering referees, writing lawyer bios and work highlights – all on top of client work and internal projects. Like many niches in the legal industry, legal directory submissions require detail and careful attention. We answer your questions and shine a light on the world of legal directories.

The benefits of legal directory rankings

Crucial to convincing Partners of the necessary investment for legal directory submissions is highlighting their benefits; standing out to prospective clients is merely one. Ensure that all advantages are communicated during both the Partner buy-in process and when that coveted legal directory ranking is achieved. Our consultants explain these benefits and why legal directories should be key to your legal marketing activities.

Legal directory logistics

The systems and processes behind legal directory submissions may seem complicated. Why do new rankings results take so long to come into fruition? Do some jurisdictions value rankings higher than others?
