Burke & Company Celebrates 8 Years of Steady Growth and Innovation in Legal Technology PR and Marketing
NEW YORK CITY – September 27, 2012 – Burke & Company LLC a New York City-based communications firm specializing in legal technology public relations, today celebrates its 8-year anniversary. Profitable since its founding by President Christy Burke in 2004, Burke & Company (B&C) is on track to double its gross revenue in 2012 as compared to 2009.
B&C works with a diverse client base comprised of legal software providers, services companies and consulting firms based in the U.S., Canada and the U.K. Dynamic, entrepreneurial organizations look to B&C to provide resources including PR, marketing, management consulting, communications training and technical writing.
This past summer, B&C created and produced the Legal Technology Observer, a 6-week blog project hosted on Legal IT Professionals, an international website for which Burke writes a recurring column. Legal Technology Observer featured blog posts from B&C’s own in-house writers as well as contributed essays from industry luminaries such as Monica Bay of Law Technology News, Randi Mayes of ILTA and many more.
Christy Burke recently addressed Women in eDiscovery’s NYC chapter on the topic of personal branding and moderated a CLE panel for the New York County Lawyers’ Association (NYCLA) focused on how technology tools can be used to uphold ethics obligations. Earlier this year, Burke presented educational sessions sharing best practices for legal technology marketing and PR for both ILTA and Thomson Reuters’ West LegalEdcenter. She is also a member of the New York City Paralegal Association Advisory Panel.
B&C is dedicated to helping the surrounding community and is a longstanding supporter of Coalition for the Homeless. Burke is an active sponsor of arts programs in the NYC public schools and is also involved in international aid projects in Africa with Plan International. Christy Burke holds a B.A. from Connecticut College in New London, CT and is on that institution’s Board of Trustees.
Burke says, “Over the past eight years, Burke & Company has grown steadily in terms of revenue and personnel.
