New York, NY, United States, 2010/02/03 - The global network that connects lawyers as expert sources with reporters received over 160 international television and print press requests from the media last year - SCGlegalprnetwork.com.
SCG Legal PR Network, a service that connects lawyers as sources with reporters seeking legal experts, today marked its one-year anniversary with the achievement of 90 percent of its current members being interviewed by the press to date.
“Law firms are quickly learning that public relations and visibility are essential ingredients for business growth. However, given the current economic climate, law firms, like most businesses, are grappling with how best to get ROI on their marketing dollars. SCG Legal PR Network does this. When I think about all that SCG Legal PR Network has managed to provide, it’s hard to believe it has only happened in one year,” said SCG Legal PR Network Founder Paramjit L. Mahli. “Joining the right lawyers with the right members of the press was not always so streamlined. SCG Legal PR Network’s database of legal experts continues to grow throughout the country.”
Within its first year, SCG Legal PR Network has received over 160 international television and print press requests from media such as Associated Press, Bloomberg, Reuters, Guardian UK, CNN and many more. Thirty percent of SCG Legal PR Network’s lawyer members who have been contacted by the press have been interviewed twice or more within the first year.
“SCG Legal PR Network certainly levels the playing field for small firms that are just getting their feet wet in the world of PR,” said SCG Legal PR Network lawyer member Ginger D. Schröder of Schröder, Joseph & Associates, LLP. “In today’s fast-paced, 24/7 technological world, it doesn’t matter whether your law firm is in Albany, N.Y., or Lexington, Kan. Google has become the first point of reference, and this is precisely where building your leadership as an expert is critical. Services provided by businesses such as SCG Legal PR Network are invaluable. Very affordable for firms starting PR.”
Other accomplishments include SCG Legal PR Network’s law firm member roster expanding from domestic firms to global firms such as Chadbourne & Parke LLP and international legal groups such as the International Lawyers Network. The network also won the Gold MarCom Award for creativity and innovation last October.
