When the firm approached Futura, it was a successful business that had been trading for 6 years. Whilst relatively small in size, it held its own amongst other medium sized law firms in London. The perception of the firm in the marketplace, however, meant that the firm had reached a turnover plateau and was failing to scale and win bigger client contracts.
The firm was not actively promoting how its unique approach and vision benefitted prospective clients and the business community. Whilst it was apparent that internally the firm shared a unique vision, this wasn’t being communicated externally in a compelling way.
With new leadership seeking to grow the firm’s visibility and turnover, they sought our assistance to bring the company’s unique value to the forefront of their marketing efforts.
We began our rebranding of The London Law Practice with a discovery phase that involved meeting with the firm’s Managing Partners, conducting interviews with current clients, researching competitors and talking with the firm’s solicitors. This in-depth research confirmed that the firm’s entrepreneurial spirit and focus on solving business problems were the cornerstone of it’s success.
Our analysis led to a new brand position – Business Growth. Powered By The Law – that conveys the idea that everything The London Law Practice does is purposeful and is founded on achieving practical, easy to understand business solutions based on legal insight, creativity and commercial expertise.
The new positioning was reflected in updated messaging and imagery, which was used as the basis for the firm’s re-brand and then consistently incorporated into a corporate brochure; a revamped website; sector focussed microsites, sales letters and targetted marketing campaigns.
To share the firm’s expertise, foster engagement and cultivate the new business focussed brand platform, we helped the firm develop its Business Breakfast forums. The educational speaker forums enhanced the firm’s reputation as an industry leader while offering significant value for current and prospective clients.
Internally, the brand refresh has successfully generated excitement and “buy in” amongst employees, giving them a sense of ownership and pride in the firm. as well as confidence in it's growth aspirations - that have positively impacted retention and recruitment.
In terms of external marketing, the company has experienced improved online visibility with the development of it's new website and sector specific microsites. We delivered an improved user experience, increased traffic and stronger visitor engagement behaviour.
The firm’s new brand position has helped the company gain recognition as a top-ranked competitor, nearly doubling in size, and helped position the company to grow through strategic client acquisition.
The London Law Practice is engaging prospects with a compelling differentiated message and a cohesive value proposition, resulting in larger deal opportunities in their pipeline.
