Omar approached Otter PR seeking public relations and media coverage for himself and his law firm to establish his expertise further, discuss breaking legal topics and Latino issues. He also wanted to become a thought leader in both the legal and professional Latino communities.
Omar’s primary PR goal was to gain a handful of articles placements in English and Spanish-language national general circulation outlets, legal publications, and television. At the same time, he wished to expand his name recognition within his home state of Texas.
Omar’s PR goals required our team to create a media strategy that included digital publications, television, podcasts, radio, prestigious legal awards, and traditional print publications such as trade sites and industry-specific journals. In crafting this strategy, we had Omar comment on current events and breaking Supreme Court of the United States cases and rulings.
In to understand his point of view and leverage his legal knowledge, weekly meetings with Omar were essential for our team’s strategy. This helped us garner publicity that displayed his expertise in antitrust, insurance, employment, and other niche topics pertaining to US law.
