Yorkshire law firm Berwins has cemented the growth of its specialist Digital Law team with a key appointment and the launch of a new website.
James Talbot, formerly of Aviva, has joined the Digital team – which has seen exponential growth in demand for its services – following its further recognition in the Legal 500 and major new client wins.
As well as expanding its personnel, Berwins has finished a complete revamp of its Harrogate office and digital presence in line with plans to better represent its contemporary offering on and offline.
Both were redesigned to embody the philosophy “No ordinary lawyers”. The office received a fresh new look, while the new website, built with client convenience in mind, offers easy to download documents, online fee payment and simple, colour-coded legal sections for ease of navigation on all devices. The site was delivered by another Harrogate business, award-winning agency Extreme Creations.
Carolynn Peace, Berwins’ director, said: “We wanted our office and site to be modern, smart and accessible in line with our brand.
“Our Digital Law Team is expanding rapidly and its success was what attracted James to come on board. With this growth, we felt it was the right time to roll out a new website with the additional functionality that our sophisticated digital clients expect.”
In this relatively niche but increasingly relevant area of law, Berwins was one of the region’s pioneers of the service to advise technology companies and digital agencies with their specific needs, and now has an international as well as a national clientele, operating from its Leeds and Harrogate bases.
James Talbot said: “The opportunity to work with the Berwins Digital team and its world-class clients, and be part of the future growth and development of this sector is tremendously exciting.”
