On Thursday 19 April, the first ever family law tweet-up took place at One Alfred Place, a private members club in the heart of London’s West End, attracting over 60 family law tweeters from all over the UK.

The purpose was to bring together Twitter users to meet in the flesh and to discuss family law issues using more than 140 characters allowed by Twitter. It was organised by leading north-east family law specialists, Major Family Law (@majorfamilylaw) and sponsored by LexisNexis (@LexisNexisUK), a leading provider of legal information and practical guidance.

Geraldine Morris, Head of LexisPSL Family at LexisNexis (@geraldinemorris), said: “LexisNexis publishes an extensive range of family law online and print content, making sponsorship of the first family law tweet-up a natural partnership. The event was a great opportunity to share ideas and knowledge and I’m delighted that it was a huge success.”

An early adopter and advocate of social media in customer engagement in the north-east, Major Family Law were keen to promote networking and collaboration between family law practitioners.

Founder and principal solicitor Joanne Major said: “At Major Family Law, we aim to be as innovative and modern as possible in our approach. Twitter is an increasingly rich source of important family law news, an opportunity to learn, and a great way to get input into thorny legal issues. We are very pleased with the success of this flagship event, and look forward to seeing more take place.”

Following the tweet-up, Twitter was buzzing with attendees asking when the next event would be – follow the hashtag #familylawtweetup for the latest updates as there could be a tweet-up happening near you soon!

Inbound marketing for law firms – For those about to flock

Chris Davidson Moore LT

Written in honour of Malcolm Young, recently deceased founding member of AC/DC, there are nine references to AC/DC songs throughout this article. We will send a £20 iTunes voucher to the first person who gets in touch to tell us what they are. The forces that are driving change in the legal profession are wide and varied. The ability of law firms and individual solicitors to respond positively and innovatively to these challenges will determine who survives and prospers. Competition for new business is fierce, a dog eat dog world, one might say. Which brings us to AC/CD. Not my favourite rock band, but an acronym for Attract, Convert, Close and Delight – the four pillars of inbound marketing.
