New York, NY, United States, 2010/01/04 - Service that connects lawyers as resources to news reporters receives the Gold MarCom Award less than a year after its launch - MarcomAwards.com.
Only 10 months after its launch, SCG Legal PR Network, a service that connects attorneys as sources to reporters, received the Gold MarCom Award for creativity and innovation this past October.
“SCG Legal PR Network is excited and honored to accept the Gold MarCom Award. We’ve experienced tremendous growth throughout our first year, and this award is a great testament to that,” said SCG Legal PR Network Founder Paramjit L. Mahli. “Smart folks in the legal industry understand that during tough economic times, it’s imperative to continue with their media relations; it sets them apart from their competition who are using draconian measures to slash their communications budgets.”
Its legal-expert member database ranges from lawyers from all sizes of law firms.
Since last January, SCG Legal PR Network has facilitated relationships between its members and journalists from news outlets such as Law360, New York Law Journal, Financial Times, Fox News, BusinessWeek, Fortune, Money magazine, and The Times (UK). This coverage includes comments for television, print and speaking engagements.
