Promoting Your Practice

We provide the infrastructure and support to market your expertise and availability, to a wider range of potential clients, Australia-wide.

How do people find out about you, your expertise and areas of practice? Barristers have traditionally relied on referrals to obtain work. But how can you be referred when you are operating in a state in which you are not known?

The World Wide Web accessed through the Internet and searched by Google has become the most common way for people to find information and obtain advice about the things they need help with. These people are not searching for you, but your information. We help make your information accessible to the people who want to find it.

Many barristers produce lengthy, learned papers on some aspect of the law in which they have expertise. They then deliver a talk at a free promotional legal conference and then file their document. Instead by writing short (800-1200 words) informative and helpful articles that precisely explain a particular area of the law using “long-tail keywords” people will find your article and so they will find you.

We have build a dispute resolution information site at www.disputeresolution.com.au. Here we publish your articles and link them back directly to your Chambers profile and webpage. Over time you will develop yourself as an authority in the areas of law in which you are particularly interested to expand your practice. Maybe you already are but the only people who may know that are your existing clients.

Shared Marketing

Is marketing an anathema to you? Outside of you geographical location you may be unknown to lawyers who practice in that location.

We have the techniques to assist you to professionally and regularly distribute information to your current and prospective clients.

We provide the means for collegiate marketing via purpose designed “panels” that are identified to likely users that you select or who subscribe as interested in the area in which you practice.

We have the technology to regularly and professionally provide them with newsletters, case reports and other material of interest to their legal practice. Information that keeps you and your colleagues in top-of-mind awareness.
