In our latest post, we delve into a critical aspect of achieving top legal rankings: referee feedback. When it comes to legal directories like Chambers and Legal500, feedback from referees carries substantial weight, accounting for over 50% of your final ranking.
However, the reality is that many law firms still struggle to secure the necessary feedback. In the Netherlands and Belgium, for example, Chambers reports that only 35% of referees (7 out of 20) typically provide feedback. Why is this the case?
1. The Referee Selection Challenge:
2. Communication Gaps:
Chambers has introduced a new feature this year – the ability to track whether referees have provided feedback. While this is a step in the right direction, the true game-changer lies in proper referee selection and comprehensive information and preparation before requesting feedback. This not only boosts the response rate but also enhances the quality of the feedback received.
So, how satisfied is your office with its response rate and testimonials? And where do you see opportunities for improvement?
Achieving a strong ranking isn’t just about legal expertise; it’s about strategic positioning and compelling testimonials. Sometimes, it makes perfect sense to bring in an external expert with a proven track record in this domain.
