Law Firm PR: Content Remains King As Tactics and Engagement Platforms Evolve

February 12, 2019 | 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM

Law firms are pressured to adopt new marketing and PR strategies quickly as they compete to stand apart. The common refrain that law firms trail behind other industries is fading quickly as law firms rely less on traditional PR tactics and more on innovation, finding new ways to deliver their messages and extend their reach. Notwithstanding this innovation, the need for great content – albeit adapted to serve emerging distribution platforms – persists.

Our panel of seasoned PR professionals will dive into a wide-ranging discussion of the challenges and opportunities they will be tackling in the year ahead. They also will share their insights on how they execute a successful PESO content strategy (paid, earned, shared, owned).

Our panelists include:

  • Jason Milch – Partner, Baretz+Brunelle (Moderator)
  • Lisa Sachdev – Senior Manager, Public Relations, Dentons US LLP
  • John Tuerck – Global Director of Public Relations, Mayer Brown LLP
