Legal Awards Consultancy

Winning or being shortlisted for a respected legal award helps increase awareness of your firm in the wider market. They highlight your firm and partners’ legal talent and skill. Legal awards are a key component in developing a comprehensive approach to your law firm’s legal marketing strategy.

Your Trusted Legal Awards Consultant

At Kidd Aitken we know how to win legal awards. Our team comprises former legal directories editors who are regularly on the judging panel of legal awards. We understand the time and effort it takes to compile an entry. With our guidance, your legal award entry will stand out from the competition.

Our Legal Awards Process

Kidd Aitken approaches your legal award entries with the same rigorous and methodical process as your legal directory submissions.

1. Defining Goals

Kidd Aitken begin by identifying the awards that fit your firm’s expertise and advise on the legal awards worth entering. With many awards available, you need to enter those that will reap the most reward.

We assess the ability for PR exposure, networking and business development to help you win new clients. Streamlining the awards that you enter ensures maximum results and prevents you from diluting your efforts.

2. Preparing Your Entry

We are rigorous in how we prepare your legal awards entries. We get to know your firm. We interview your Partners, gather evidence and create case studies. Highlighting the stellar legal work of your Partners and the firm.

As we have often supported firms on legal directory submissions, we already have this information to hand. Effectively using our knowledge of your firm to create your award entry.

3. Drafting Submissions

We know how to create an award entry that has the best chance of winning. The best award submissions are those that share the journey of your firm or the growth and talent of your nominated Partners. The post-award feedback collation is important. Whether to learn how to improve for your next award or to replicate your success for other awards. We help you create a strategy for future legal award entries, and the marketing to support them.

Legal Business Awards Submissions – Gain Recognition for Your Law Firm

While achieving stellar legal directory rankings boosts the reputation of your firm and your Partners, winning a legal award provides additional recognition and further elevates you in a competitive market. Legal awards reward outstanding achievements and the innovative work of your firm and Partners.

Kidd Aitken helps you devise a marketing and communications plan to maximise award success. Legal awards are more than just a trophy in a cabinet. They are great news to share with your network.

There are several ways winning an award helps you boost your brand awareness and expands your reach within your sector:

  • An opportunity to reach out to clients, both current and prospective, as a talking point to build stakeholder relationships.
  • Being nominated alone is validation for your firm and a reason to celebrate success. It speaks volumes of your firm’s talent and that of your Partners and is indicative of your firm’s prowess. Highlighting how you handle your cases, manage client service, and your expertise within each practice area.
  • An award tips a firm’s reputation from “very good” to “excellent”. It sets you apart from your competitors.
