Some positive news for solicitors !
A recent poll conducted by RTS Media with 500 consumers contains some good news for solicitors and there has been precious little of that around for many months. First, the mildly bad news. It seems that nearly 1/3 of consumers would be prepared to instruct a major brand, not currently associated with law, as soon as that brand enters the legal marketplace.
On the other hand, for some types of matters, such as divorce and conveyancing, the percentage who would much prefer to instruct a solicitor was between 70-80%. This is good news for solicitors although perceptions may well change when and if some major brands enter the market. Solicitors have traditionally not prioritised marketing and it seems to us that what this survey shows is that most of the market is still there for solicitors to lose but a different attitude, budget for marketing, and ensuring this is well spent are likely to be critical in the next few years.
