New platform for

01 August 2013

Visitors to, Bird & Bird's website, will notice some big changes following a major redesign.

As well as a more modern design that uses more scrolling and swiping, the site is one of the first major international law firm websites to use 'responsive design'. This means it will automatically detect the size of the device's screen size and adjust what is displayed accordingly, ensuring that all content can be viewed on mobiles and tablets, as well as on PCs.

The site is available in nine different languages – Danish, English, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Polish, Spanish and Swedish and visitors to the website should also benefit from a faster site with simplified navigation –for example 'practice areas' and 'sectors' are now combined under a new item called 'expertise'. An improved search function that should enable users to find what they are looking for more quickly and easily, while new 'contact us' button uses geo-location to provide details of the most appropriate contacts within the firm for each page and lawyers' details include email, telephone and v-card details via one click. Other new features include an enhanced news and events section and improved careers pages.
