Gilbert Stephens is a well-established law firm with six branches across Devon: Exeter, Crediton, Ottery St Mary, Budleigh, Sidmouth and Okehampton. They wanted to raise the profile of their firm as a whole, as well as generate publicity locally for each of their offices. They pride themselves on their professionalism and expertise, and also on their commitment to the communities they serve across Devon. They have also founded a Young Professionals Network, enabling their up-and-coming employees to meet and socialise with other young professionals.
We work with Gilbert Stephens in all areas of their PR and marketing, including business development and event planning, and market them on social media platforms. We are an extension of their business – we are their marketing team.
We have been advertising Gilbert Stephens with the larger Devon magazines and also the smaller, more community-centred newspapers, with the smaller publications also carrying short editorial stories about the branch offices. These have included stories about the Young Professionals Network, short articles written by members of staff, and news about the branches’ links with schools and other businesses in their area. These articles are also placed on the Gilbert Stephens website, providing fresh content and proving that the firm regularly makes the news and, where appropriate, the articles are also posted on social media.
