Hedges Law appoints Fortitude Communications

Hedges Law has appointed Fortitude Communications to manage its PR and marketing to support its growth.

Hedges, one of Oxfordshire’s oldest companies, has appointed Fortitude Communications to manage its strategic public relations and marketing for a planned growth phase.

The respected law firm is due to open a new branch in Chipping Norton this summer, to cement its market-leading countywide position. It appointed Fortitude Communications to support the opening following a competitive tender process.

It provides support for its clients across all aspects of their lives, including advising on wills, probate and inheritance planning, property law and conveyancing as well as dispute resolution, family and divorce. 

Fortitude, an award-winning communications agency, will devise and deliver an integrated campaign with a strong focus on community engagement, brand awareness and positioning, PR, video production, marketing and events. 

Perfect fit
