No5 is a large set of barristers’ chambers with around 250 barristers including over 25 silks and with offices in London, Birmingham, Bristol and East Midlands. We were commissioned to create a brand new bespoke website to convey chamber’s breadth and depth of expertise whilst also providing quick and easy access to the firm’s large array of publications, CPD seminars and support services.
The home page picture banner is used to relay recent quotes from legal directories, underlining the firm’s reputation for excellence in terms of expertise and service. The firm offers eighteen main ‘core practice groups’, each of which is subdivided into in total of over forty more specific ‘areas of expertise.’ One of the key tasks was to communicate this very considerable breadth of expertise, and you’ll see how well this is accommodated on the homepage and the Areas of Expertise drop down menu.
The site supports a large amount of content, all of which is accessed quickly and easily. Each of the service pages is supported by a range of related and cross-linked content underlining the firm’s expertise in that area. Similarly, all the barrister profiles are cross- linked to the relevant areas of expertise and each profile contains a CV for every area of expertise covered by that individual barrister.
Another key feature on this site is the CPD seminar booking facility allowing clients to book and pay for multiple seminars for large groups of solicitors in one transaction – saving time for clients and doing away with what used to be a huge administrative burden for Chambers.
