Legal PR and marketing consultancy LexRex Communications has joined collaborative networking, business development and support group Northern Legal Alliance.
The group, which is the brainchild of lawyer and entrepreneur Andrew Byrne, was conceived in 2020 initially as a networking and business development group for lawyers; but which has now developed into a hub for both practitioners and suppliers to the legal sector. The alliance was created to support the sector and is built around principles of non-competition and collaboration.
Andrew commented: “There are a number of membership groups for both lawyers and suppliers to the sector. However very few focus upon the North specifically, and the huge opportunities that abound for lawyers away from London.
“I created Northern Legal Alliance to both support the legal sector up here, as well as opening the doors for both lawyers and those who work with lawyers to build their networks, support each other and collaborate.
“When Victoria approached me to ask about joining the Alliance, it was a no brainer. Victoria already has strong relationships with a number of our members; and her expertise and knowledge of PR and marketing within the legal sector, supported by her real-life experiences of time spent in practice, mean that she and LexRex are a perfect fit.”
Victoria added “It’s great to see a group of northern practitioners and suppliers coming together with an aim of collaboration, making new connections and shining the spotlight on the achievements of law firms and the sector outside of London.
“We have strong relationships across the UK but I always welcome any opportunity to work and build connections here; where I live and deliver a lot of my work.”
Northern Legal Alliance has recently started delivering face-to-face networking events and is currently planning its first conference for Spring 2022. You can find out more about the Northern Legal Alliance here.
