Presentation: The Social Law Firm Index:
How the Top U.S. and U.K. Law Firms Rank in their Use of Social Technology
Presented by: Guy Alvarez, Chief Engagement Officer, Good2bSocial, LLC
The audience will learn the results and general findings from a series of studies, which were conducted to assess the extent to which U.S. and U.K. law firms are currently using and relying on social technologies and practices as part of their business operations. The study reviewed the websites and social media profiles of the 50 largest law firms in the U.S. and the 100 largest law firms in the U.K. across all public platforms, including LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, YouTube, Slideshare and others. The study assessed each firm’s publically available substantive content as well as its social reach and engagement, assigning a point value based on the number of followers, friends, likes, comments and so forth. This enabled us to rank the overall effectiveness of each firm’s efforts in social media.
The U.S. study was undertaken jointly by Above the Law and Good2bSocial between June and October of 2013. The U.K. study was undertaken jointly by The Ark Group and Good2bSocial between March and June of 2014.
