ReviewSolicitors, the legal review website launched last month, has recruited 300 law firms as premium subscribers through a deal with a leading case management provider. It means clients would automatically be offered the chance to post reviews while ReviewSolicitors would know they were genuine clients.
The young entrepreneur behind RateMyBarrister.com has expanded the site to include solicitors. William Rees, a barrister based in Cardiff, accepted that this would mean finding a new domain name.
Over 1,300 solicitors – from small practices to some of the biggest in the City – have joined rating and review website VouchedFor, and 1,100 client reviews have already been posted, the company has said.
A website which claims to have published 10,000 reviews from clients of independent financial advisers (IFAs) and mortgage brokers is seeking to move on to solicitors.
