How We Do It

Using the following scenarios, here’s how we help law firms to address a range of challenges:

#1: Help clients and partners understand the scope of your offering

Over time, you’ve developed and expanded your products and capabilities, or changed their scope. But your brand is still the same. Are you maximising your value by making sure your clients understand the full picture of what you offer? Are your partners well versed in the breadth and depth of your solutions?

SOLUTION: Going through a rebranding process, and developing a separate sub brand or standalone brand, can be the best way to ensure your product portfolio and capabilities are packaged in a way that makes them accessible and distinct.

#2: Launch a new product

Your practice area or sector group has developed a new online tool to guide clients through new regulations or provide greater efficiencies. Now they want to bring it to market and other groups in the firm also have plans to create their own products. Yet the firm has no structure or framework for naming and visualising products, or for communicating them to clients and partners.

SOLUTION: Brand architecture provides a blueprint to group, name and visualise products, and launch them.

#3: Reorganise, restructure and add clarity

You have an ad hoc collection of products and solutions, comprising different names and identities created at different times by practice and sector groups. Apart from a corporate brand, nothing holds these together.

SOLUTION: The creation of a master narrative, which outlines your corporate purpose along with individual stories, can provide a wrapper for your collection of solutions. This is part of developing a more structured approach to brand identity, helping to regroup products and solutions.

#4: Tell your story better

There’s no shortage of New Law capabilities and solutions, and you may have a marketing programme in place to tell your story. The problem is, it’s neither compelling nor widely understood.

SOLUTION: The way a narrative is told may need refreshing if it’s to capture the attention of audiences both internal and external. This can involve digging deep to unearth new insights, then using rich content, new media and creativity to bring your narrative and messages to life. Toolkits, hubs, film and thought leadership can form the cornerstone of any new content strategy.

#5: Refresh your image

Maybe you’re trying to shed legacy perceptions, or your look is outdated in the fast moving tech market. You might need to sharpen your look across all customer touch points, from website to literature, presentations to social media.

SOLUTION: To move from who you are now to who you want to be will mean ensuring your brand is rooted in strategy, insight and inspiring expression, and delivered consistently across all applications.

#6: Develop hearts and minds

You’re already on the tech journey. Your objectives and plans have led to digital transformation projects, you already have innovative solutions, fed by your knowhow and expertise. It’s now time to have the right conversations with clients. Making sure they are know who to call, developing hearts and minds is key.

SOLUTION: Creating internal narrative for your story is a good starting point to bringing everything and everyone together. Providing and delivering evidence based content – crib sheers, case-studies, presentations, forums, and more will provide the tools and confidence to ensure your people are having the right conversations with clients.
