We’ve launched our first ever free legal advice service – #UKLegalHour – on Twitter!

Published: 17th June, 2014

In recent months we’ve made a name for ourselves in the Twittersphere for our innovative approach towards using social media.

Some law firms encourage their clients to follow their Twitter feed; some use it to broadcast key messages or a promotion of some kind. We’re taking things one step further by launching the UK’s first ever legal Twitter chat – #UKLegalHour – that provides free, live advice to those with legal questions .

Save the Date!
Launch date: Wednesday 18th June – on this date only, initially…
Hashtag: #UKLegalHour
Time: 1pm-3pm
Topic: Employment Law

We’ll have an expert employment team, with employment lawyers Sarah Buxton and Gemma Mallon, answering your questions live – in real time. We understand that legal advice can be complex, and can rarely be shortened to just 140 characters – so we’re going to make it really simple and will also be posting live answers via our blog – lcf.co.uk/blog – and linking to these answers from our Twitter account @LawFairSquare using the hashtag #UKLegalHour.

Why are we doing this?

 The #UKLegalChat has been set up because our research showed lots of people have questions relating to employment issues that they would love to ask a lawyer.  So, if you have a nagging issue or question about employment law – make sure you join in the conversation!

Our Managing Partner Simon Stell said, “With a growing need for fast and accessible legal advice, we wanted a platform that would allow us to answer people’s legal questions in a quick and easy format. We believe that Twitter is a great way to connect with customers and potential customers, and showcase our expertise on the subject.”
