We pride ourselves on the good relationships we enjoy with our clients and the media.

What our clients say:

MD Communications really understand our world. Their expertise in branding, PR positioning and messaging has been invaluable to Burcher Jennings. Their insights have not only helped boost our PR profile and brand positioning, they’ve undoubtedly contributed to our overall strategic business planning and growth. I’d recommend them without hesitation.

Martyn Jennings, Chief Executive, Burcher Jennings

I recognise the importance of video communication both within a business and externally. Being able to come across to your audience with confidence and clarity is vital. The practical tips, techniques and advice which I received from the team at MD Communications, in a very engaging manner, have been invaluable. The session included instruction, practical exercises and critique of videos which I recorded both prior to and during the workshop. I was able to put many of the ideas into practice very quickly. The team clearly has vast experience and I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone who wants to develop their skills in front of both the camera and journalists.

Peter Taylor, Managing Partner, Paris Smith llp

MD Communications is incredibly well connected across the legal media and wider legal marketplace. We can always rely on their clear guidance and insights. We know we have unrivalled specialist expertise, through their PR work and assistance with the legal directories.

Laura Devine, Managing Partner, Laura Devine Solicitors

The team at MD Communications really understand the legal landscape and the media. I have always valued their advice and their skill in matching our professional expertise and knowledge to the requirements of journalists and the stories that make up the news agenda.

Zee Hussain, Head of Corporate Services, Simpson Millar LLP

Melissa and her team at MD Communications have worked with us to help us develop our PR strategy, and have assisted with our legal marketing since we first opened our office in London. Melissa was helpful in assisting us with public relations and branding and was very much aware of our needs. We are an international law firm who really benefited from MD Communications’ experience of working with legal firms and the breadth of their expertise. I have no hesitation in recommending Melissa and her team.

Colin Jamieson, Pirola Pennuto Zei & Associati UK LLP

The whole team was very easy to work with and they were always available for further questions and clarifications even out of normal working hours and on very tight schedules. They are very knowledgeable of the whole legal directories submissions process and have teamed up greatly both with us in the Business Development Team but also with the partners in each of the areas to get the most out of them. I would definitely recommend them for their deep knowledge, kind follow up and great attention to detail.

Business Development Manager, Leading Argentine law firm

Melissa and her team provided extensive knowledge and understanding of our campaign which inspired significant media and political interest. This led to an audience with a government minister, a local MP and interviews on national and regional television. Melissa and her team were incredibly sensitive to the issues which provided reassurance and confidence when dealing with the media. MD Communications created a national profile for my firm and my campaign.

Greg Almond, Director, Almond Solicitors

We have worked highly successfully with MD Communications… Melissa’s ideas, boundless energy and considerable insights into the fast-changing legal world are invaluable to us.

Keith Oliver, Head of International, Peters & Peters

MD Communications led by Melissa has the insight to know what makes a powerful brand. They are results driven, extremely well connected, and understand the legal landscape exceptionally well. For us not only does MD Communications beat the competition hands down but Melissa has a personality that makes her a real pleasure to work with.

Peter Clements, Director, Global BPO

What the media say:

MD Communications are one of the most media-savvy businesses working in their field. Their expertise in finding the right lawyer for the right publication or briefing shows they have a depth of excellent contacts.

Robert Verkaik, freelance legal journalist

I have found MD Communications to be a highly professional team, as knowledgeable about their clients as they are about the demands of modern journalism, and they know how to organise an event. Above all, though, they are good fun and a pleasure to deal with.

Sean O’Grady, Associate Editor, The Independent

The team at MD Communications knows what journalists want and is skilled at providing knowledgeable commentators at short notice when deadlines are bearing down. Years of experience with the legal profession means the MD Communications team also actively produces valuable ideas and leads in what can be a complex field for reporters.

Jonathan Ames, Legal Editor, The Times

The team at MD Communications has the required instinct to know what is – and is not – a story and understands journalistic imperatives very well. Melissa and her team also understand how to get her clients media coverage, partly because Melissa has such deep and valuable experience of all aspects of the legal media and public affairs scene.

Paul Rogerson, Editor in Chief, Law Society Gazette

MD Communications is a great and well-deserved success.

Trevor Kavanagh, Associate Editor, The Sun

MD Communications, specialising in the legal sector… has already scooped a number of top clients. Davis, who was highly popular both at the Law Society and outside it, is of course brilliantly placed after years of press-handling and dealing with solicitors up and down England and Wales.
