Archer Norris has trusted Tenrec to develop and maintain its websites since 2000. The current website is the fourth iteration of www.archernorris.com that Tenrec has been fortunate to build and maintain.
Archer Norris has also been using our website managmeent system, Darwin SM, as long or longer than any client we have and the firm has experienced many versions of the tool during that time.
Designed by Greenfield Belser, the current website features a distinct and vibrant interface that highlights the firm’s top notch attorneys and their focus on California business and real estate law.
On the backend, the website management system provides Archer Norris with granular-level control over content and page relationships. The system also includes a complete experience database allowing the firm’s marketing staff to create new experience items, connect them with attorneys and practices and even rank them to show in a custom order on each page.
The Cozen O’Connor website was designed by Right Hat and developed by Tenrec using the Darwin Site Management system. The site prominently features the firm’s case studies and past experience content. Using Darwin SM’s advanced tools for relating pages and controlling how those relationships are displayed, Cozen O’Connor is able to create and maintain specialized content across the site.
Darwin SM is fully portable and can be maintained and hosted by Tenrec or any capable provider. Cozen O’Connor chose to host their website internally and the firm maintains the site, including all the Darwin SM code, with its IT team. Tenrec provides ongoing support and consulting for the firm on an as-needed basis.
Keker & Van Nest
Keker & Van Nest is the premier litigation firm in Northern California. Tenrec and Right Hat collaborated to create a unique, stand out website and brand for the firm that together conveyed the firm’s powerhouse qualities.
The home page combines custom illustrations with feeds of news, experience and testimonial content. On the site attorney bios and practice profiles prominently feature related “Cases of Note.” Attorney profiles contain separate tabs or sections of content that can be turned on or off and labeled uniquely for each attorney. Through the site management system, Keker’s website administrators are able to control all of this content including setting the exact order that experience or news items appear on individual pages.
The Keker & Van Nest website is built on the Darwin Site Manager system and the firm utilizes the system’s experience database and proposal generator components.
Fish Richardson Litigation Blog
Fish Richardson needed a new blog built in WordPress. The new blog would need to closely match an existing blog, also built in WordPress. Right Hat was working with Fish Richardson to create that matching design but they needed a development team to handle the programming aspects of the project and to handle the WordPress customizations.
Tenrec was able to step in and provide development services on short notice and we were able to complete the project on a tight schedule and within a limited budget.
Cozen O’Connor Public Strategies
Cozen O’Connor engaged Tenrec for a series of projects beginning with the development of this microsite for the firm’s government relations practice group.
The look and feel of this microsite was created by the Right Hat design team. The site was developed on the Darwin Site Management system. The site is closely integrated with the practice group’s blog, which built by the LexBlog team.
Cozen O’Connor Subrogation Microsite
Cozen O’Connor wanted to incorporate a microsite for its subrogation practice group into the main website that Tenrec was building for the firm.
This new microsite was to be integrated with and managed by the same content management system as the main site and it needed to be closely integrated with the main site database. The attorney profiles for the microsite would pull biographical data from the attorney profiles on the main site. The news on the microsite would have the option to be published on the main site. And finally publications on the microsite would sometimes be published on the main site as well but some of those publications were secure, and required that a visitor be registered and logged in before viewing those documents.
Tenrec worked with Right Hat and Cozen’s internal marketing and business development group to define and design this application. The Darwin SM’s robust and flexible capabilities allowed for our developers to create the microsite to meet all of Cozen’s stringent requirements.
Fenwick & West
Fenwick & West and Tenrec have worked together for many years. With the latest iteration of the firm’s website, our team was one of a few groups that worked together to design and develop this online project. Tenrec had been maintaining Fenwick’s previous website and was brought in on the new project primarily to help with planning the new site and to be prepared to maintain it post launch.
The new site was built in Microsoft Sharepoint and, as the project progressed, our engineers ended up taking on significant portion of development work, collaborating with Fenwick & West’s internal Sharepoint developers to help bring the project to a successful completion.
The result of everyone’s work is a dynamic and powerful website that uses content tagging, topic areas and targeted search forms to give visitors an easy browsing experience and tools for finding exactly the information they seek.
Tenrec continues to provide ongoing consulting and development services to Fenwick & West as we maintain this site and other online applications for the firm.
Drinker Biddle & Reath
The law firm of Drinker Biddle & Reath engaged Tenrec after considering several different website management solutions and not finding one that fit the firm’s needs. In reviewing Darwin SM, the firm found a system that had the flexibility to meet the specific functional requirements that the new website demanded and one that provided the features and benefits the firm hadn’t anticipated wanting.
The design for the Drinker Biddle website was created internally by the firm’s graphic designer. Tenrec worked closely with this designer and the firm’s marketing staff to flesh out the site hierarchy and to establish and document the bevavior of the site’s many page types.
The resulting website boasts an elegant design that sets it apart from most all other law firm sites today. The home page offers visitors an engaging and interactive matrix of the news, issues and content that may be of interest to them. Drinker and Biddle has also created side bar navigation for visitors looking to find information by what the firm is trending at the time.
Tenrec works with Drinker Biddle to maintain the site and to extend its functionality.
The NYC-based firm of Wilk Auslander turned to Right Hat to design a new brand and website for the firm. Right Hat recommended Tenrec to provide information architecture, programming and testing services for the website portion of the project.
The new website at www.wilkauslander.com is built on the Darwin Site Management system and features rich mega menus, customized attorney profiles and a targeted tools for publishing the firm’s news and insights.
