Gilson Gray’s professional support reached hundreds of thousands during lockdown thanks to Legal PR experts

Gildon Gray hits headlines during pandemic thanks to Legal PR expertsBy Kitti Laczko

WHILE April brought uncertainties to everyone’s lives, Gilson Gray continued to offer excellent and high-quality service to Scottish businesses and individuals alike.

Throughout the month, one of Scotland’s most prominent legal, property, and financial firms was busy assisting the public.

The team offered its expertise to employers and employees when the Government’s furlough scheme was published for the first time.

It provided Scottish businesses – which had obtained offers of loans under the Government’s Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS) programme – with free legal advice in order to support them in their fight to bounce back after the pandemic.

Gilson Gray found creative solutions to ensure that property buyers and sellers could still use their services in a safe way. The firm’s Family Law team was also on hand to support Scottish families through the tricky situations arising from lockdown.

Our team ensured that this invaluable help and support was shared widely across national, local and industry media. Highlights included:

  • 47 pieces of coverage across an extensive range of publications
  • National pickup in The Scotsman, Sunday Mail, The Herald, Daily Express
  • Tech coverage in FutureScot
  • Local and regional coverage in The Courier, Edinburgh Reporter, Evening Telegraph and North Edinburgh News
  • Industry features in Scottish Legal News and Scottish Business News, with newsletter coverage direct to hundreds of inboxes
  • A total 939,485 opportunities to see
