Lewis Rice launches new website

Lewis Rice, a law firm with more than 150 attorneys and over 100 years of history, launched a bold new website today.

The website was designed and developed by Great Jakes and features a new look worthy of a world-class, 21st century consultancy. The design features sleek lines, a light and airy feel and large, engaging photos. Some of the unique features of the website include:

  • A series of “client stories” that describe how the firm collaborates with its clients
  • Edge-to-edge photos, some of which were shot at client locations
  • Responsive design mobile functionality
  • Facebook-style predictive search

The Lewis Rice site also utilizes Attorney Microsites—a unique approach to lawyer bios that Great Jakes pioneered. Attorney microsites are, essentially, small websites for each attorney that fit within the firm’s larger website. Attorney microsites can be customized to the specific business development needs of each attorney and contain any number of pages or type of content. An attorney's microsite can be configured to display podcasts, video, PowerPoint presentations, and twitter and blog feeds, as well as "custom pages" to highlight a specific aspect of an attorney's practice. Some notable examples of attorney microsites on the Lewis Rice website include Kirk Damman, Winthrop Reed and Mark Winings.

The website was built with Great Jakes’ unique Rainmaker CMS technology. Photos were art directed by Great Jakes and shot by acclaimed photographer Peter Olson.
