Over the past few years, the way people search for legal support has changed and evolved. The influence of the Internet, and the role it plays, is now a defining channel for law firms and their website is probably the most important platform they have. So, Davis Blank Furniss – the Manchester & Glossop based law firm – is this week launching a brand new, cutting edge and innovative mobile site.

The new optimised site – one of the first in the region’s legal sector – was created by Studio North. It is an edited version of Davis Blank Furniss’s main website and is designed to facilitate access to the firm’s various departments via hand-held devices, quickly and easily. The key benefits for users are based around flexibility and convenience.

The Android, iPhone and Blackberry compatible site boasts a number of unique features; visitors can now benefit from quick-loading and easy to read content – that has been purpose built for mobile devices – thanks to an optimised navigation function which delivers quick (two-click) access to any page on the site.

It also boats a map function using GPS, which is fully integrated with Google Maps, so users can find their way to both offices from any given point. Other benefits include a quick call function and a fluid page layout ensuring page content automatically reacts depending on whether a portrait or landscape view is needed.

Kate Oldfield, managing partner of Davis Blank Furniss, commented; “It is vital for lawyers, just like any other industry, to stay one step ahead and to meet the needs of its clients. Researching law firms can be stressful and confusing so we want to make the process as simple and as convenient as possible.

Kate added; The new mobile website has been created to do just that and we are confident it will become a pivotal part of how we do business.”

Davis Blank Furniss’s new mobile website is live now.

Excellent experience start to finish – always very responsive to any queries and the turnaround on the property I was buying was very quick, even in the busy time leading up to stamp duty deadline. Jenny was always very helpful and went above and beyond to close on a short timescale.

Ben Armitage

“Very approachable, practical solutions to problems, but most of all very responsive which I personally think is very important because if you need help, you need it quickly, or at least to know someone is looking at it for you”.

Joanne Rowe, Finance Director, Greater Manchester Chamber

“Always able to contact, very approachable, friendly and professional”

Nives Feely, JAM Recruitment

“I believe I have been able to establish a professional working relationship with everyone I have come into contact. Importantly, I sense the relationships which have been established give me the confidence that I can make contact with Davis Blank Furniss at any time and on any matter. I would also like to express my thanks to the very impressive “gatekeepers” who work in reception, not only for making me very welcome, but also for their professionalism”

Bill Pryke, CEO, Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors

“Thank you for your efficient and friendly help throughout this process. We have had it easy but your approach has been part of that”.

Robert Amsbury (Conveyancing Client)

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you personally for the ongoing support and assistance the firm has offered to our parents over the years. I hope also that we may be able to call on you if necessary in the future.”

Valerie Fisher (Probate Client)

“Jo always provides great service, understands our needs and delivers on her promises. Our needs are relatively simple but the complexity arises out of the volume of work and short time frames, Jo always delivers.”

Peter Fernandez, Corporate Director at Royal Bank of Scotland

“A big thank you to all who dealt with my wife’s claim… We would not hesitate to recommend Davis Blank Furniss to anyone that may be in a situation like we have been…”

Anon (Personal Injury client)

“Before putting my case in Kirsty (Morbey)’s capable hands I’ve met a couple of other solicitors. None of them listen to me as intently as Kirsty and showed me as much empathy and understanding as she did. Simultaneously she was able to look at my case from legal perspective, explain all the options and follow each of our meetings with written summary of the discussed matters (in timely manner). Her advice was invaluable and led me to successfully ending the case matter (hopeful for good). I’m forever grateful for he work and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for reliable, knowledgeable and committed solicitor”.
