Built to stand out from the crowd!
Cogens Legal Practitioners is an international law firm headquatered in Nigeria providing services to a range of industries and individuals around the world, they required a website that would appeal to their peers, private clientele, and the corporate markets, too. Important factors were ease of use, the ability to add news and events easily, a strong recruitment section and the ability to add staff biography pages with ease and at will. This was a new build, allowing us a clean slate to work with.
Afolabi (Principle Counsel of Cogens Law) approached us looking for a fresh take on a new build website for his business. Initial concerns were that our designs may not have been conservative enough for the legal world.
Afolabi was drawn to us because we stood out from the crowd but was aware that some of his clients would appreciate a more toned down approach. We put his mind at ease and he is very happy with the balance we struck.
We worked closely with Afolabi to get a real feel for the market he was a part of, and to understand where he wanted to take the practice. First we looked hard at what was working for his competitors and peers, and then what wasn’t.
It was decided we would create a one page website, with a sticky menu at the top for constant ease of access. Clicking on any menu item will take you straight to the relevant part of the page. We also added a dynamic slider to the top of the page, with photographs we had worked the logo and wording into, for a truly custom feel. These slides also help to cultivate the feel of an international law firm. Cogens is a great company and is already expanding, with this in mind we added an area where potential employees can upload their CV’s. We have also provided a comprehensive training manual so that Afolabi and his team can make changes to the site should they need to, although we will always be on hand, offering top-notch support throughout.
Afolabi has already begun to receive numerous positive comments from his visitors and clients regarding the site, one client in particular commenting that the site ‘made her feel as though Cogens Law was a firm that would take good care of her.’
