Communications Planning Success Story

The Issue

We worked with a law firm whose goal was attract key audiences to its Labor & Employment practice group. We worked with attorneys regularly to maximize their expertise in breaking news matters. For example, we seized on the opportunity for comment to the media when the Department of Labor (DOL) finalized their overtime rule.

The Strategy

A few days prior to the new rule announcement by DOL, we worked with an attorney at a large national law firm to create compelling comments on the significance and impact for employers. We then reached out to our local, national, international, and trade industry news media contacts covering labor and employment issues.

Over the course of that week and over the next two months, we received numerous interview requests for this attorney as well as interest in penned articles. We managed a constant stream of media requests and made sure that our client was prepped and confident and had the skills needed for his interviews with print and broadcast reporters.
