The Challenge

Arnold Bloch Leibler (ABL) is a premium Australian law firm with a storied history spanning more than 60 years. Before working with Get Started, ABL had a website that was over a decade old and very much in need of an overhaul. ABL wanted to create a site that better reflected the firm itself – a site that captured the essence of the brand and balanced contemporary design and user experience. It had to cater for a diverse audience, from potential and existing clients, to media and young digital-native law graduates. The client also needed a content management system that was flexible, robust and easy for staff to manage.

The Solution

The standout feature of this site is its design. Get Started was very cognisant of the need to capture just the right tone with the site’s look and feel. It had to be progressive, yet still authoritative. It had to feel modern while also paying heed to the firm’s history. ABL embraced this challenge and gave Get Started the freedom to lead it into completely new design territory – right down to an evolution of the logo.

The project also entailed a change of CMS for the client, with Kentico being selected for its ability to facilitate a modern design that would still allow for flexibility in managing content. A variety of page types have been set up which allow ABL to have full control over content in a straightforward, easy-to-manage format. A number of inter-module relationships have also been created to allow multiple areas of the site to be updated simultaneously. In addition, the Kentico platform made it easy to develop a responsive site, which is especially important for the graduate market.

The new site has not only heralded a new era in design for ABL, it has also served as a launching point for a whole new digital-first approach to marketing and thought leadership. With the new site as a hub for content, ABL is now able to really accelerate its social media and content marketing initiatives.
