Yes, what’s the point? It’s not as if law firms (a) invest any money or time in their online content, including profiles of their practice areas and lawyers and know-how; or (b) depend in any way on their websites as the major source of information for potential clients. Why on earth don’t the affected firms simply commission 1000-page brochures and have them delivered by hand to everyone in the world who instructs or might instruct them before retiring to El Vino’s (post-lunch at Sweetings) given that it is a Friday.

Reply Link Anonymous 8 October 2012 at 10:46 @ Anonymous | 5-Oct-2012 1:21 pm What a totally ignorant comment! What facts do you base your reply on? I work for a law firm who in fact DO spend a great deal of money and time on their online content – I’m part of their marketing team so I’m fully aware of the efforts! Just because this may not be the case for some firms, don’t reply with sweeping generalisations that are inaccurate. Also, for the record, in this day and age a firm’s website is the primary source of information for potential clients.
