LinkedIn for the Legal Profession
Helping you to increase your professional visibility and produce a steady stream of new clients
LinkedIn is an online networking site for business professionals. It has more than 460 million members and two new members join every second.
LinkedIn is the best social media strategy for law firms and legal professionals over other forms of social media because it enables you to connect and collaborate with your peers, your existing and prospective clients, and build up a strategic referral network.
Whether a prospective client has connected with you and is following your Status Updates, or just finds you through search results, your LinkedIn profile is a vital advertisement for your business. Sometimes it’s the first introduction a person gets to the services you provide.

Patricia GodfreySenior Lawyer & Experienced Corporate Advisor, CMS Legal Services
Thank you Rachel - I found the assistance you provided really excellent. It has helped me look at my skills set from a more rounded perspective whilst also encouraging me to utilise the tools available on Linkedin to greater advantage.
Paul O’CallaghanBarrister, Clerksroom
I really enjoyed chatting with Rachel about my linkedin profile and I found her advice to be extremely helpful and thorough. Highly recommended and she made me think about social media in a completely different way!
Paul McCluskeyUK Head of Professional Practices at Lloyds Bank
With the increased focus on having an effective social media presence I was acutely aware of the shortcoming of my national team. Rachel agreed to present to my specialist legal sector team and brought to life the practical do's and don'ts relating to LinkedIn. Feedback from the team spoke highly about the presentation style, the content and importantly increased understanding which they could all apply to their daily lives. It is fair to say Rachel made an immediate impact and I have no hesitation in recommending Rachel as the go to expert for LinkedIn.
Donald TurnerPME TRAINING by BlueGreen Business Development
I attended a one day workshop with Rachel and enjoyed understanding the workings of LinkedIn. I have 'played' with this platform for a few years and thought I understood the value of it. After the course I felt a lot more confident in fully utilising the value of LinkedIn. Since the course I have been much more active and generated more leads. It certainly bolstered the marketing for my business. If you are thinking of using Rachel, all I can say is will not be disappointed. She is engaging, knowledgable and professional.

Rachel knows exactly what she is doing and is highly recommended.
Anastasiya DayLegal Secretary, Thomas Mansfield Solicitors
I work for Thomas Mansfield Solicitors as a Legal Secretary and we invited Rachel Tombs to come and show us more about social media. I absolutely loved what Rachel shared with us and her approach to it. We spent several hours with Rachel and we all enjoyed her session and also it was fun. I have worked for many years as a Virtual Assistant and I still learnt something new. I would definitely recommend her services.
Martin ReynoldsHead of Company & Commercial Department at Barrett & Co Solicitors LLP
I have engaged two of Rachel's services to date, namely the LinkedIn profile writing service and a bespoke group training course that focused on using LinkedIn effectively. As a result of Rachel's professional help and guidance, I not only have a LinkedIn profile that I feel best represents what I can offer clients, but I have also gained a good understanding of how I can utilise LinkedIn to reach potential clients and a profitable network of industry connections. Rachel is skilled at explaining the benefits of using LinkedIn to its full potential, tailoring this information to the legal profession and helping to put in place time and cost effective LinkedIn marketing strategies that work.
Justin SadlerPartner/ Solicitor, Specialising in Solving Wills, Estates & Trust Disputes for Private Individuals & Charities
Rachel is an expert in LinkedIn and with her previous background as a solicitor, she was an obvious choice to teach us about how to use LinkedIn and to write our profiles. Her instructions were clear and practical and she managed to help everyone, from beginners to more experienced users. She tailored her approach to our specific needs and provided a good follow up service. She also introduced us to a charity that led to one of our trainees receiving the Employee of the Year Award that was then featured on the Local News and Radio! I would certainly recommend Rachel's services.
Gina AllwoodChild, Family and Immigration Barrister at 7 Bedford Row Chambers
Rachel is an extremely conscientious LinkedIn Consultant. She has gone over and above what was asked of her when compiling my profile and her attention to detail is outstanding. She correctly identified relevant and lucrative business opportunities and her ideas have resulted in great success. The 2 stage approach of firstly compiling the profile and secondly, tuition with LinkedIn, ensured that I understood the importance of updating the profile and also the methods of interacting with other organisations. Highly recommended!
Derek BroadLegal Headhunter and Director, Wesley Broad Partners Limited
I recommend Rachel as an excellent LinkedIn Coach. She was able to grasp and understand very quickly how my business operates and services the needs of both my clients and candidates. She was soon able to draft my LinkedIn profile in a professional and orderly manner.
Rachel's advice on using LinkedIn as an effective business tool with the recruitment sector was easy to understand and follow. I now feel more confident and capable in making far greater use of the benefits of LinkedIn within my business.
Overall, Rachel is extremely helpful, friendly and knowledgeable and is already well connected within her sector with the list growing on a daily basis.
