Awards and Directories

Awards and Legal Directories for Lawyers and Barristers

The third-party endorsement you get from winning a prestigious award and/or being ranked in a legal directory is powerful. Not only are these great marketing activities to showcase your skills and expertise they can also help build your credibility, attract new clients, foster loyalty with existing ones, and support your recruitment initiatives.

We have a proven record of helping clients get shortlisted for international, national and regional awards and achieve rankings in Legal 500 and Chambers. We understand the submission and review processes and have the writing skills to give you the best possible chance of success. We can also help you promote your achievements throughout your marketing campaigns so you can achieve maximum impact and longevity.

Directory Submissions for Lawyers

Legal 500 & Chambers and Partners Legal Directory Submissions

We understand that Legal Directories such as the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners are important to solicitors and barristers to build credibility, attract new business, illustrate the breadth and depth of their skill set, and support the recruitment of talent to their chambers. Directory quotes and rankings are an independent verification of your credentials that help build your signs of expertise, authority and trust.

However, all too often a lack of in-house resources means key information is not prepared, presented or submitted in the correct format, leading to missed opportunities for recognition and disappointing rankings.

The legal directory submission process

We can:

  • monitor Legal Directory research deadlines to ensure that you don’t miss any opportunities
  • prepare submissions and advising on where they can be improved to give you the greatest chance of improving or maintaining your rankings
  • monitor when references will be contacted enabling you to improve the response rate
  • manage the administration of the submission process thereby reducing the time spent by clerks and barristers on Directory submission activities
  • liaise with the Legal Directory researchers to set up telephone interviews and help prepare for them

Members of the Orion Legal Marketing Team are experienced in helping legal professionals maximise their rankings having worked with specialist Legal Directory agencies in the past, which has provided them with real insight into how the directories assess entries. We can help draft and review entries to make sure they contain the correct information, in the right format to maximise your chances of a ranking. We have helped law firms get shortlisted for The Legal 500 UK Law Firm of the Year and their lawyers awarded Leading Individual and Tier 1 status.

Our Approach

Our combined 100+ years’ legal marketing and business development experience means that we understand the culture, processes, and challenges within Law Firms, Mediation Practices, and Barristers Chambers and the markets in which they operate. We know what’s realistic, what gets the best results and have a solid proven, successful track record.

Our measurable marketing methods and techniques are focused on your success. We always tailor our approach to fit our clients’ specific needs but we have found by adapting the Design Council’s framework for innovation Discover, Define, Develop and Deliver every opportunity for value is maximised for our clients.

Most professional relationships are based on the ‘know, like’ trust’ approach. Ours is no different. 

At the outset we will take the time to get to know you, your legal business, your target market and what you are trying to achieve so we can ensure we deliver the perfect solution.

You can ask us questions, see how we work, seek our opinion (we like to give it) and check that we are the right legal marketing agency to take you forward.

Once we have an agreed brief, we will cost it out so you know exactly what you are paying for and what we will be delivering. No hidden costs guaranteed. 

Once that is agreed we will commence work on your project.

We’ll make sure to keep you in the loop, letting you know how things are progressing without interfering too much in your busy working day. It’s our job to keep things on track and on budget so you don’t need to worry about it.

At the end of the project, we’ll deliver what you need and offer a handover process to make sure you are happy with everything.

Unlike some legal marketing agencies, we won’t just take the money and run.

We have ongoing relationships with most of our legal clients – supporting them in developing their marketing, growing their legal practices, and for the self-confessed technophobes assisting with website updates, posting articles and content on social media accounts.
