O’Melveny Web Build



Established more than 130 years ago, O’Melveny is one of the biggest law firms in the US. But in 201X their website wasn’t communicating an appropriate level of prestige. As a result, O’Melveny briefed us to refresh their digital presence, citing our team’s extensive experience with legal clients – including a number of Magic Circle firms.

Making first impressions count

We knew timings and budget were tight, so we wanted to focus our efforts on a fast solution that would deliver the greatest possible benefit. With this in mind, we started by redesigning the homepage – where most visitors start their journey – to create a smart first impression befitting a global law firm.

Keeping up appearances

Next, we applied our updated stylings to the rest of the site to keep the journey slick and consistent throughout. We also restructured the navigation – stripping it back and increasing the focus on the most important paths, so that users could find the information they needed quickly and easily. Together, these changes added up to a major positive impact for O’Melveny and their clients.

Moving forward together

Throughout the process, we handled every aspect of UX, design and build and delivered in just four months. Having laid the foundations for success, we were able to pass the project over seamlessly to O’Melveny’s internal team. And since then, we’ve continued to collaborate with the law firm, including technical work to optimise site performance, as well as expanding into presentation design, microsite design and build, moving image and more.
