We believe that common sense, responsible marketing adds value in and applies to every sector.

We work hard to deliver commercial insight and sector understanding across a wide range of B2B and B2C organisations.

But at ELE Global we are particularly respected for our work with professional services organisations such as law firms, chambers, accountants and consultancy practices.

ELE Global’s founder, Helen Hammond, is one of the best-known experts in professional services marketing and business development. Drawing on almost 20 years experience of working for organisations across this sector Helen has built an international team of professional services experts with skills in both strategic and tactical areas.

Unlike many other agencies ELE Global’s innovative, flexible and international structure means that our professionals are true experts in their field, rather than being ‘good all-rounders’ that have been trained up. Many members of the team have in-house experience, having held senior roles in global firms or suppliers to the industry.

In short, at ELE Global you not only get the best expertise but you get insight born of genuine experience of having sat on your side of the table.

Client care: microsurveys v. the annual review questionnaire

If you struggle to know what works when you’re converting leads into prospects and then clients, you are not alone. If you are unsure whether you are keeping existing clients happy and providing them with the services they need, again you are not alone. Marketing...

What is the difference between a lead and a prospect?

Question: how many lawyers does it take to make a sale? Answer: none, because lawyers don’t 'make sales', they 'do business development’. So, having got the joke/observation/objection/grumble out of the way, for the purposes of this article let’s deal in plain...

Should you outsource your Chambers marketing?

I think we can all agree that a modern barristers’ chambers (ok… let’s park whether or not that is an oxymoron) should provide a top class service to its clients, founded on high legal competency, creative thinking and a forensic approach to detail. You’re in the...
