Those in the legal profession are failing to make as much of an impact on social media as their accountant rivals, a benchmarking survey has found.

Social media: law firms could do more?

The report by Living Ratings – a benchmarker of financial and professional services communications – found that London-based Eversheds was the law firm with the most visible online presence, reports The Lawyer.

Twitter proved to be the most popular platform for law firms, although the report suggests that firms rely on re-tweets and linked content rather than original posts.
