Ask Chambers and Partners Live 2023 – Wrapped Up

Last month we went on the road with Chambers and Partners as part of our ongoing specialist support for law firms during legal directories season. We first launched our events in partnership with Chambers and Partners back in 2019 with our live In Conversation with Chambers panel event in Manchester. Since then we’ve delivered online panels and webinars with the Chambers experts throughout the past 4 years. So it was great to bring our legal directories expert panels to you live again as we went on tour this autumn.

The LexRex Ask Chambers and Partners live events took place across the Midlands and the North, bringing our attendees together with the Chambers and Partners editorial team. Our goal? To provide the answers to the questions troubling those responsible for legal directories submissions and strategy in their law firms.

“It’s been great to pass on my advice and get some questions, including the sorts of things we hear a lot from firms after the process is over, but we don’t always get to address before submissions have been created. It’s great to be able to give that advice first.”

We started in our hometown Manchester, joined by Lydia Burt, Principal Research Specialist, Chambers and Partners and hosted by the wonderful Eversheds Sutherland. Then we hit the road, meeting up with Al Marsh, Chambers and Partners’ UK Research Director, at the gorgeous Shoosmiths offices in Birmingham and then finally to Leeds to enjoy the hospitality of Wrigleys Solicitors where we were joined by Chambers and Partners’ Head of UK Solicitors Research, Steven Preston. Huge thanks to the Chambers and Partners team for joining us and sharing such valuable insights and we’d like to thank all of our hosts for helping to make this series of events so enjoyable and run so smoothly on the day as well.

With each panel hosted by LexRex managing director and resident legal directories expert, the Ask Chambers and Partners events were unique in that the content was entirely driven by our audience. We gave law firm partners and marketing teams from firms all over the Midlands and the North the opportunity to send questions forward for Victoria and our Chambers and Partners panels to tackle on the day. These fully interactive, face to face sessions also gave the audience the opportunity to ask questions to the experts live and in person on the day. It was fascinating and enlightening to be able to collectively explore our audience’s pain points and get answers to their legal directory queries together.

“My team has a really profound role in the Chambers submissions. We really do get involved with promoting the excellent work that we do. it was important for me especially to come today to get some hints and tips and feedback on how we can improve our submissions going forward.”

Each of our events was packed with information and advice on how to strengthen your firm’s legal directory submissions. It was great to see so many attendees at each one, not only getting important answers to their questions but also sharing their directories challenges and learning from each other as well.

If you didn’t have chance to attend any of our events, you can still get access to the goldmine of information and advice that they produced. Each event was recorded in full, and we also produced a series of highlight reels to showcase each session. On top of that, we’ve collated a handy ‘Top Tips’ download – allowing you to see the best advice from these sessions at a glance. All of this and more is available to you today, for free! All you need to do is sign up to the LexRex Legal Directories Resource Hub and it’s ready for you, along with wide range of resources that support your legal directories strategy, approach and drafting for both Chambers and Partners and The Legal 500 directory submissions.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Ask Chambers and Partners roadshow. Once again we’d like to thank all of our audiences, hosts and the editorial teams at Chambers and Partners for making these events possible.

We’re looking forward to bringing you more panels, advice, resources and downloads in 2024!
