Leeds Law Society has announced a partnership with digital marketing agency Ascensor to develop their new website and digital marketing strategy.

Rachel Windle, head of operations at the Leeds Law Society says “We are delighted to engage the support of Ascensor on the development of our website, which plays a key role in how we communicate with our members and our wider audiences.”

Leeds Law Society is the voice for solicitors in Leeds, and, as one of the top five law societies in the UK, helps to shape the legal environment nationally and locally. They also promote justice through a broad range of work with influential stakeholders and opinion formers. Their new website will be a pivotal communications channel in their agenda for change.

Rachel explains that Leeds Law Society also has an important economic role: “The legal sector is one of the most important parts of our local economy, and our purpose includes helping to grow this sector. We serve more than 4,000 members across the region, so it’s crucial that our web presence and our digital marketing capabilities continue to be first rate.”

She adds: “The pace of digital innovation means that we have reached the moment where we need to make key improvements. Our current website was successfully designed and developed by Webposse, which was acquired by Ascensor earlier in 2020, making them a natural choice to lead our improvement work.”

Andrew Firth, MD of Ascensor says “We are delighted to have been asked help Leeds Law Society in the development of their website, which is a key communications channel to their members and key stakeholders. Our role will be to redevelop their website and create additional functionality so that it delivers its current and future purpose to a broad number of audiences.”

Andrew adds: “We have also been asked to support the digital marketing requirements of Leeds Law Society and contribute our expertise in this era. Alongside the digital sector, the legal profession plays a huge role in the regional economy, and the team at Ascensor is looking forward to helping Leeds Law Society with their continued development.”

Ascensor will also create a partnership package for Leeds Law Society member firms, which includes discounted web and digital marketing services. Andrew Firth comments: “By creating improved digital assets for the flagship organisation Leeds Law Society, we are hopeful that their members will recognise the value that we can also add to their firms.”
