This is the marketing website of Thompson Coburn LLP, one of the largest law firms in the United Sates. I was webmaster at TC for seven years primarily responsible for this site, but working on other projects as well, such as a customer relationship management system.
The current site is the last iteration that I worked on and has been in place largely unchanged since 2006. The focus of the site is to maximize the availability of information specific to practice areas an attorneys and to present the firm as a leader in premier legal services.
Clean Design – The design and layout was developed by a very talented artist at Thompson Coburn and translated into a flexible web layout that performs well in multiple browsers and window sizes.
The site is spare and modern in part to aid cross-browser compatibility as many corporate clients still use legacy browsers such as Internet Explorer 6. The site “degrades” gracefully and is still very functional if the user selects larger text for their own legibility.
Attorney Indices – These indexes are dynamically generated allowing users to sort alphabetically by first and last name, by practice and by office. This addresses the key visibility goal of allowing users to find attorneys with minimal information . Visitors can review the site, locate an attorney and print and download their resume iin Acrobat. Clients regularly used these features to select determine that Thompson Coburn had the legal experience to meet their legal challenge.
Special Content – I illustrated and programmed two Flash presentations to inform the user about issues when purchasing commercial property. The “Virtual Walk Around” presentations demonstrated the expertise of Thompson Coburn’s commercial real estate practice in helping firms purchase warehouse and restaurant property.
