6 March 2013


Manchester’s full service digital agency, mmadigital (MMA) has been appointed by leading industrial disease law firm Roberts Jackson to produce a series of consumer videos following a competitive pitch.

Cheshire-based Roberts Jackson Solicitors appointed mmadigital to produce nine one-minute videos, offering advice from its solicitors and featuring first-hand experiences from claimants of industrial disease.

Karen Jackson, director of Roberts Jacksons Solicitors, says: “Due to the sensitive subject matter we had to find a partner we could trust. We’re often dealing with distressed people, so it was vital that the videos not only demonstrated our human face and knowledge, but also dealt with each claimant as an individual. The end results show that mmadigital really understood what we were trying to achieve, resulting in professional and sensitive output.”

The response to the videos has been very positive with one video detailing the story of a cumulative back injury claimant receiving over 2,300 views in just two months. All nine videos were commissioned and completed within one month and can be viewed here.

Dez Derry, CEO of mmadigital, says: “Law firms are really starting to respond to the digital revolution and appealing to customers in a way they are comfortable with. While the subject matter is difficult, it has been great for us to work with such a forward-thinking firm such as Roberts Jackson and we look forward to continuing the relationship.”

Since completing the video project, mmadigital have subsequently been appointed to deliver a range of micro sites for the firm.

The skills shortage in law firms is the biggest threat to handling cybercrime

CLC Roundtable discussion at Malmaison Hotel, Charterhouse Square

The skills shortage in our businesses is the biggest threat to our industry when looking at cybercrime. Cybercriminals are not just after money but are looking for sensitive information too, so the legal services sector is an obvious target. In the last year we have had reports of around £7m of client money being lost to such crime. This is not an IT issue and it should not be left to the IT teams to sort out. It is a high-level responsibility and a board-level issue that must be taken seriously. We suspect that we will look back on 2016 and ask why we didn’t respond quicker.
