Social Media Rules and Legal Marketing Rules

Clio’s blog post is handy, but the Don’ts section should start with a directive to lawyers to “check the legal marketing rules applicable in your jurisdiction.” I can’t tell you how many times I see lawyers and law firms who breach the rules. This is usually because the marketing companies they have hired haven’t got […]

Know thy memes or how to avoid getting flamed on social.
