SEO for Law Firms & Solicitors
Helping you to maximise the performance of your entire SEO activity with relevant guidance, advice and problem solving.
SEO can be expensive when many firms bid on similar search terms within the same location. This excludes many smaller law firms from engaging in SEO to market their services.
Beyond the high costs, many firms are wary of the lack of transparency that most agencies provide. Where attention to detail is crucial for your firm’s success, handing over the reins to an agency that won’t tell you what they do or how they do it is simply not an option.
However, most law firms don’t know what SEO is, how it works, or why it is beneficial. Lacking this information, it’s no wonder law firms have historically struggled to succeed with optimising their online presence.
How Can my Legal Firm Overcome These SEO Challenges?
Teaming up with the right specialists is the best way to ensure your law firm can overcome these hurdles. Take control of the SEO benefits available to you. You need an agency that will work with you, informing you every step of the way. For long-term success, you want ownership of your data. You also need to know how your SEO works, so that you can put your best foot forward in the future.

Our SEO Expertise & Specialisms
We have decades of combined experience in SEO at Legmark, and are collective experts on…
Technical SEO audits
There aren’t many SEO issues our team haven’t seen over decades of combined expertise in varied industries. From older websites that have slipped behind the times to newer sites missing core optimisation features. We’ll be sure to find a way to get your organic traffic growing and continue that trend long term.
In-depth keyword research
Many agencies will pick just a handful of keywords relevant to your legal services for monitoring and targeting. Not here at Legmark though – we take stock of EVERY SINGLE KEYWORD we can find. Ensuring no stone is left unturned within your SEO strategy.
Furthermore, we understand data means nothing without context and expertise. This is why we audit and segment your data in a way anyone within your law firm can understand. Want to know which of your legal services has the biggest ROI? Or what questions your potential customers are asking in relation to to the law? We can tell you that and more.
Regional & Local SEO
The first (and often easiest to access) customers for any law firm are usually the ones on their own doorstep. The moment anyone has legal matters that need attending to, their first instinct is to look for a solicitor locally.
The local SEO strategies we’ve executed for clients have proven, time and time again, one of the best ways to get a fast ROI from SEO is better visibility on your own doorstep.
International SEO & Hreflang
Multinational or immigration law firms have the additional challenge of ensuring their websites do all they can to target other regions or languages where customers may be based. Luckily, we have plenty of experience working on international SEO projects too.
Our knowledge of best practice when it comes to international ranking signals. From correct hreflang implementation to language subfolder cross-linking, is unrivalled.
SEO-Charged Content Strategies
In the modern age almost every business on the internet knows they need to be creating regular content through blogs and news. The question we always get asked is what content should that be?
Our in-depth keyword research process ensures we can build a long term content strategy for your law firm. Resulting in continual incremental gains. Our team knows exactly what needs to be written and how that writing should be structured to ensure the best SEO traffic return on any legal content.
B2B & B2C Legal-Sector SEO
Not all law firms have the same goals, and good SEO performance is a highly subjective metric based on needs.
We have expertise helping law firms rank better in both B2C legal areas such as divorce law or child arrangement and B2B law matters like construction and business insolvency.
Site Migration & Relaunch SEO Consultation
Relaunching your website with a brand new design and content can be a costly task – the last thing you want is all your existing rankings and organic traffic to vanish in the process, thus costing even more to your business.
Our SEO experts have collectively handled dozens of successful site migrations over the years, taking full stock of existing performance and ensuring the beneficial signals are factored into the next generation of your law firm’s online presence.
Backlink Analysis & Google Penalty Recovery
Backlinks are a double edged-sword for SEO – gaining strong links in a natural way will boost rankings but low quality or manipulative tactics could land you in hot water.
Our team has helped countless businesses recover from both manual action penalties or algorithmic backlink issues over the years through diagnosis and efficient audit processes.

How does Legmark achieve your SEO success?
We adapt your campaign to fit your budget. While there will always be an ideal budget to achieve the best possible results, you don’t need to spend large sums at once. It’s more important to begin with minor changes and see the results. Once you’re confident with your SEO investment, you can start building up from there.
No “secret recipe” can be applied to achieve SEO success. The algorithms are changing and evolving regularly, and your SEO strategy needs to adapt as they do. Other agencies keep the “how and why” to themselves, so you are dependent on them for future changes. We believe in transparency and trust. With Legmark, you will know what data we collect, from where, and how we use that to inform you about strategy shifts in your campaign.
We want you to feel you haven’t only implemented an SEO strategy but also learned and understood the process. Because you have ownership of all your documents and data, long-term, you could take over the management of your campaigns successfully.
Our Working Guarantees
- Our team offers superior service with only highly qualified individuals working on your projects. We guarantee that your project will be handled by a senior team member with the knowledge and skills required to deliver a successful campaign.
- Flexibility is essential to us, not only in how we approach your campaign but also in our contracts. You are free to cancel at any time, and since you own the documents and data, your growth won’t have to end just because you’ve terminated working with us.
- We know SEO can be a daunting investment if you don’t fully understand it; that’s why we offer an initial diagnostics service. This allows us to review your website performance and identify a few issues we could address before you commit to a monthly retainer so you know more about your investment and why it is valuable to you.
- We also offer a pay as you go phone consultancy for £100, with a money-back guarantee if you don’t feel you received good value from your call. This service is another way for you to understand what we do and whether you should invest in our services.
