Marsden Rawsthorn hires The Write Angle

Leading Lancashire law firm Marsden Rawsthorn has hired The Write Angle PR & Marketing to promote its range of legal services across the region.

Marsden Rawsthorn has offices in Preston and Chorley and offers expertise in all aspects of law including business & commerce, property, dispute resolution, family law and wills & administration of estates.

The Write Angle is tasked with raising the profile of the company in local, business and trade press. Marsden Rawsthorn is also looking to increase its share of voice in the local marketplace, and The Write Angle aims to position the firm as trusted experts in their field.

The appointment comes on the back of Debbie Pettitt’s promotion to chief executive, having spent four years as the company’s director of business development and marketing.

As the first non-solicitor chief executive in the firm’s history, her appointment is seen as pivotal in allowing senior partners, who would normally assume the role, to concentrate on providing outstanding legal advice and expertise to their clients as opposed to running the business.

Debbie Pettitt commented: “The business has seen significant growth over the past few years and we feel it’s the right time to highlight our range of services.

“The Write Angle has an excellent track record in corporate communications and promoting professional services clients. We felt they really understood our brief and came back with a creative and intelligent response.”

Angela Smith, managing director of The Write Angle, said: “Marsden Rawsthorn is a great addition to our professional services portfolio and we are looking forward to working with the team.” The Write Angle recently won Best PR/Creative Agency and Most Creative Marketing Campaign for Preston Guild at the annual Downtown Lancashire Business Awards.
