A new website adapted to the needs of current legal communication

It has been a little over three and a half years since the office made a firm commitment to revamp its website and incorporate the emerging channels on social networks into its information dynamics, especially Twitter and LinkedIn.

Now, the time has come to take another step forward and adapt the image, creation of content and the way it is presented, to our new times. The digital environment is a living and constantly changing ecosystem where what is effective today, can become totally invisible tomorrow. Therefore, in addition to the firm striving to open the office doors to an audience that wishes to remain informed and up-to-date about current legal and legislative changes and news, Bufete Buades has carried out a full revamp of its company website.

The new bufetebuades.com website has a modern style where the team´s presence takes centre stage. However, we have not only worked on the appearance. Its browsability and handling are much more comfortable, for example, when it comes to finding information about one or any of the blog authors or the legal speciality areas.

A system of interconnected sections has been developed which makes it possible to access the articles published by one of the legal professionals from the lawyer´s own information page or from the speciality area section and the other way round too, allowing you to visit the information page of the text´s author from the post itself. In order to complete the resource location function on a page, an advanced search engine has been provided which makes this task a lot easier.

On a visual level, the different sections of the website have smooth mini animations that simulate the user´s engagement enabling them to discover more content that may be of possible interest to them. At the same time, an options panel and very complete site map have been designed, making it possible to access multiple sections with a single click.

The comfortable reading of legal articles and the connection between them is another of the aspects that work has been carried out on. For that purpose, a browsing system has been implemented, making it possible to do so without distractions between the different articles (infinite scroll). Ultimately, we now have content structure that is much more comfortable and consistent with the SEO requirements in operation at present. Lastly, in terms of browsing speed, the opportunity has been taken to migrate the website to a Linux server, quicker and more secure for the WordPress platform, which is used to manage the creation of content for this new channel.
