Viva la revolution! Living Ratings of law firms 2024

09 April 2024

Today sees the launch of Living Ratings of law firms 2024 – our industry-leading research report that analyses the brand and digital intelligence of the world’s leading firms.

Over 250 industry and marketing professionals joined us for our live virtual kick-off event, which featured Duncan Shaw, Living’s Chief Creative Officer, who presented the data-driven research findings of Living's 36th Ratings report.

Duncan shared the 2024 statistics and trends, then revealed who made the 'Top 20' law firms, highlighting each firm's strengths across its digital footprint. Best practice examples of law firms that are producing market-leading content and utilising enhanced functionality were also highlighted.

Once again, our team has scrutinised over 10,000 data points across the global top 100 firms and the 2024 data shows, for the first time in five years, an upward trend in brand and digital intelligence across the sector.

Insight from industry leaders
The session then turned to a panel discussion moderated by Kate Shaw, Living’s CEO, and featuring three law firm marketing and digital experts. This included Vanessa Montero from Hogan Lovells, Michelle Woodyear of Mount Insights, and Mikkel Keller Stubkjær from Novicell who discussed the quiet revolution going on in the sector.
