What is a social law firm?

A social law firm is more than the number of followers on Twitter, likes on Facebook, or connections on LinkedIn. It’s about producing client-centric content that informs, educates, and engages. 

But producing content is less than useful if people who need it can’t find it, so you'll also need to optimize for search engines. Together these elements comprise the social law firm.

How has the use of social media at law firms evolved?

We published our first findings on the adoption of social media by law firms in 2013 to raise awareness about the value of social media for branding, relationships, and business development. At the time, most firms were struggling to understand the value of social media.

Today, every Am Law 200 firm is participating on social media and most are actively developing strategies across multiple social media platforms. In 2018 law firms are more innovative than ever, using interactive content and video to engage audiences in a new way. Digital marketing and social media have evolved into essential components of law firm marketing
