Campaign objectives

  • Position Thomas Eggar as a national law firm – help it punch above its weight.

  • Communicate the firm’s specialisms in five key sectors – Private Client, Sport, Retail, Technology and Construction.

  • Focus on relevance and quality of coverage

  • Achieve 30% top tier coverage

  • Continually find new ways to keep the PR campaign fresh and to maintain its position.

Our approach

Midnight’s strategic approach was three-pronged:

  • National press: Focus on sector expertise with proactive and reactive media comment to the breaking national and business news agenda
  • Trade press: Placement in top tier sector media of regular visionary and informative think pieces and ‘talking heads’ videos inspired by shortlisted media themes.
  • Regional press: underpin PR strategy with key messaging, news and CSR activity to reach potential clients within the locale of each of the firm’s offices.


In one year, Midnight’s campaign delivered:

  • 307 items of coverage – reaching over 1.3 billion
  • One-half of coverage – 161 items – national and top tier titles (20% above target)
  • 94 opinion-led article placements
  • Over 40% increase in national and top tier coverage year-on-year
  • Trebled media coverage scores within six months
  • Video content placements in top target media
  • Through our close and longstanding media contacts the client reaped the benefits of a two-way relationship with the national media.
