Setfords is amongst the finalists for Excellence in Technology & Innovation in the Law Society Excellence Awards 2018.
It follows the work Setfords has carried out on the development of a geo-location database that helps generate tens of thousands of location-specific landing pages for consultants, and increases efficiency in getting other work generated by the firm to the right lawyer.
Co-CEO Guy Setford said: “Technology has always been at the forefront of our business and by investing heavily in our marketing and business development team, we know that our consultant lawyers are receiving the very best support in the industry. To have seen a 148% increase in the number of leads generated as a result of raising our consultant lawyers profiles in local areas is an outstanding effort in such a short space of time and we are excited to see how this performs during our next financial year.”
Co-CEO Chris Setford added: “Being a successful consultant lawyer is all about having the right level of support and at Setfords we have made it a priority to help our lawyers generate income.
“The geo-location database is the latest initiative to come out of the business development and marketing teams, departments that have generated millions of pounds in business for our consultants. Those teams, supported by web and design experts, perfectly balance an understanding of what lawyers need with how the latest technology can deliver it. Our growth is a testament to the fact these systems work for lawyers and their clients.”
The winners will be announced on Wednesday 17 October 2018 at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London.
