Head of April King Legal Paul King said:

“This is fantastic acknowledgement of the team’s hard work and we take the opportunity to wish all those nominated the very best.”

How we ‘market’

While many firms spend their advertising budget simply getting their name in front of prospective clients, April King Legal takes a very different approach to its marketing.

Through comprehensive, frequent blog articles, website pages, regular informative newspaper features, email digests and social media posts, the April King Legal team provides clear valuable guidance in a jargon-free format on a range of estate planning and other current legal issues – helping us to build relationships and drive growth.

Our blog

April King Legal Blog

Since July 2016 we have published regular, topical articles around the subject of estate planning, family law and other current legal issues. Articles are comprehensive, well researched and written to be accessible to both clients/lawyers.

There is a focus on providing free information and guidance to give the reader an initial understanding, but guiding them towards seeking professional advice and helping them understand the consequences of not doing so where applicable.

In many cases posts are aimed to tackle misinformation and help readers avoid problem scenarios, such as protecting inheritance where an adult child is not financially capable – or avoiding scam ‘asset protection trust‘ companies. This is in response to a lack of credible or comprehensive information online about these issues.

All information is supported with free fact sheets and information packs, together with eBooks (for example we have developed a comprehensive ‘Contesting a Will’ and ‘Divorce’ eBook guide (please ask if you would like a copy).

We are also featured on Delia Venable’s ‘best legal blogs’, with our content described as “well produced”.

Our newsletter

The blog is accompanied by a monthly newsletter which summarises the stories for the previous month.
