Birketts has been recognised as Thought Leader in both Employment (UK) and Private Client (UK) at the first Lexology Awards, announced on 3 October. Additionally, Bernadette Baker (Legal Director, Dispute Resolution) and Liz Stevens (Professional Support Lawyer, Employment) have been recognised as Legal Influencers within their practice areas.
Relying on a bespoke automated process to analyse Lexology data, the Lexology Awards reward law firms which produce great legal content for their subscribers. At the end of each quarter, individual authors are recognised as Legal Influencers, and law firms or contributors as Thought Leaders.
Edward Costelloe, Managing Director of Lexology said: “Birketts has beaten off stiff competition to be recognised for their work. Being one of the first winners of the Lexology Awards is a great achievement. They have been carefully designed to recognise those authors and firms who consistently provide our subscribers with useful, insightful legal updates and we are delighted to recognise excellence in legal content today.”
Matthew Rowe, Head of PR and Communications at Birketts, concluded: “We have invested heavily in our content management programme in recent years. The team produce a substantial number of legal articles that are published on our website and posted via our social media accounts each month. Additionally, we offer a large selection of newsletters throughout the year that people can receive for free via www.birketts.co.uk/register.”
