LCF Law says it is going to make social media history this month when the firm becomes the first legal practice in the UK to offer free employment law advice via twitter. The session will take place on Wednesday 18th June between 1pm and 3pm and during this time anyone with employment related questions can tweet them to the firm’s employment team who will post answers and include more detailed responses at www.lcf.co.uk/blog.  Questions should be tweeted to @lawfairsquare using the hashtag #UKLegalHour.

Simon Stell, Managing Partner at LCF Law, says: “Following our rebrand earlier this year, when we introduced the marketing message Law Fair and Square, our Twitter following has continued growing and it has become an extremely valuable communication and marketing channel for us. This session is the latest in a number of initiatives to encourage both our followers and target audience to engage with LCF Law and it gives us the perfect platform to promote our ability to provide fast and simple legal advice, which is what our whole company ethos is about.

“This will be the first time that legal questions have been answered in real time via Twitter and we are confident that it will be well-received.  We decided to focus on employment law initially because it appeals to a vast audience, that includes both employers and employees, and we’re hoping to offer similar initiatives for several of our other legal disciplines over the coming months.”
