Legal Tweet: Which BigLaw Firms Are Dabbling in Social Media

by Vault Law Editors | January 06, 2011

  • My Vault

Today’s post is inspired by a Twitter conversation from yesterday about law firms’ use of social media. Law firms have definitely been building web presences with sleek website designs and engaging blogs, but I wasn’t sure how many of them had ventured into the Twitter frontier. To be honest, I wasn’t very optimistic that I’d find many law firms on Twitter. But my curiosity got the best of me, and I decided to see which firms from the 2011 Vault Law 100 are tweeting.

My results proved me wrong: around 50% of the 2011 Vault Law 100 firms are on Twitter (and you thought lawyers were anti-social).* Below is a list of these firms (in alphabetical order) and their Twitter IDs so that you can add them to your list of law-tweeps. If your firm has a Twitter account, but you don’t see it below, send me an email so I can add you to the list (mksheridan@vault.com). And if your firm has multiple Twitter accounts (practice areas, recruiting, etc.), and you’d like them added to the list, please let me know.

* Please note, I found accounts for certain firms that did not include logos, websites, or tweets. I did not include those accounts on this list, as it is unclear if those accounts actually belong to the firms. If the account included at least one of those three items, however, I listed it, but I noted which items the account lacks.
