Former daily colleagues launch own property PR firm

Two former regional daily colleagues have launched their own PR company specialising in in property.

Jill Burdett and Dan Gledhill, who worked together at the Manchester Evening News, have founded Law of the Few PR, which is based in the city.

The pair were behind the hugely MEN’s ‘Homes’ property supplement between 2000 and 2007.

Since leaving the MEN, ex-news editor Jill has run a media consultancy and Dan, who was head of business and property at the MEN, was most recently a board director at Altrincham-based RMS PR, following three years at national specialist property advertising and PR agency Aylesworth Fleming.


Dan told the MEN: “Our agency is built around personal connectivity; using our own extensive contacts and experience of PR and marketing in the property and professionals sectors to bring people together.

“We will be working with developers, architects, contractors, law firms, funders, regeneration companies and related professionals in the private and public sectors looking to expand their networks, raise their profiles and generate new business.

“The agency has the perfect blend of communication and marketing skills to inform and persuade audiences across the property and professionals spectrum. We have filled a void in the Manchester PR market.”

Services provided by Law Of The Few include media relations, public consultation, content creation, copywriting, creative, design, marketing strategy and business development.
