5 Ways To Promote Litigation Wins

We frequently get law firms who’ve won litigation asking us how to get the word out in the marketplace. Below are a couple of suggestions to get firms started:

legal PR


  1. Media Outreach – If it’s not too old, it may be news. Identify  publications that  might be interested in the story, and create pitches designed to interest their readers.
  2. Client Communications – Include a story about the win in client newsletters, eAlerts, etc. Make this a news you can use. Is there a reason you won that is useful to other clients?
  3. Business Development - Draft a concise description of the win to include in marketing and business development materials, such as pitches. Don’t forget to spread the word internally about the win and forward the pre-written description, so other colleagues can include material  into their pitches, thus taking advantage of  cross-selling opportunities.
  4. Firm News – Take the same description and add it to the client’s collection of news that it shares with clients in its annual report, if it does one.
  5. Events – Go on the road! How did the client win? If there’s an interesting story to tell, this might lead to the development of a core message to share via webinars, seminars, etc.

Please  don’t forget to get the client’s permission first before any publicity work is executed. Finally consider getting help with the initial publicity plan, it will  help you time, money and valuable resources.

    Hi Paramjit:

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Are your lawyers still giving legal advice to reporters?

    My question is whether PRSA, a 501/c/6 non-profit trade group, can bar reporters from its annual legislative Assembly?

    No reporters were allowed in this year after my covering for 40 straight years. PRSA’s lawyers claim they’re a private group.

    I would love one of your lawyers to give a read on this either for quote or not for quote.
