Legal Awards Consultancy

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

At Kidd Aitken we know how to win legal awards. Our team comprises former legal directories editors who have judged on legal awards panels. We understand the time and effort it takes to put together a winning entry that stands out from the competition.

Our legal awards process:

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

1. Defining goals

We begin by identifying the awards that fit your firm’s practice areas and expertise. Streamlining the awards you enter ensures maximum results and prevents you from diluting your effort across multiple awards.

2. Preparing your entry

We follow similar preparation techniques used for our legal directory rankings submissions. We get to know the ins and outs of your firm. We interview your partners, gather evidence and create case studies. Highlighting the stellar legal work of you partners and the firm.

When we’ve worked on your legal directory rankings, we already have this information to hand. Effectively using our knowledge of your firm to create your award entry.

3. Drafting submissions

No matter the outcome, collating feedback is important. Whether to learn how to improve for your next award or replicate your success for other award submissions. We will help you compile and create a strategy for future legal award entries.
