Beswicks Legal






We set out to create a redesigned site for Beswicks Legal, which would reflect the ethos, personnel and breadth of services they provide. 

A content managed site was required, to optimise the customer journey around their users’ specific needs, with a strategic approach to conversion rate optimisation and search engine visibility.

It was important that the new site was built with SEO in mind from the start, to ensure solid rankings for legal terms and questions.


Business and personal law split Providing clear separation, to improve the customer journey and clear routes to solve queries quickly
Communicating expertise Demonstrating that Beswicks are experts across all sectors of law
Ranking for competitive regional search terms Needed to rank highly on results for lawyers in the area to increase visibility
Visual impact with a professional feel The site needed to look more visually appealing without losing professionalism


We delivered a site which splits the user journey right from the start, to identify specific needs easily and improve user experience.

We utilised a number of functionalities to demonstrate the legal expertise of the team at Beswicks. Most notably, a knowledge hub, which included a library of questions and answers related to common legal issues and topics, these questions and answers also featured calls to action and contact details for appropriate professionals at Beswicks – to streamline the customer journey.

Additionally, we ensured that the site maintained a professional feel, and featured professional looking visuals – with consistent photography and design. We also worked with Beswicks to design corporate literature, brochures, leaflets and wall art for their offices, to be in keeping with the new professional branding displayed on their site. 

The site was built with SEO in mind from the start, and the strategy was to rank for long tail, informative terms, to rank the site in response to legal questions.

User experience was an important focus of this project, so we implemented the latest usability trends across the site, to maximise user engagement and position the website as a contemporary, market-leading brand.

A mobile first approach was also adopted, to ensure a seamless transition between mobile and desktop browsing, with easily identifiable key information and contact points.

Additionally, we designed a unique navigation menu to improve the visual appeal and user experience of the site navigation.

A landing page was included on the site to maximise user interaction and encourage enquiries. Google analytics was also incorporated to highlight the most popular pages on the site, enabling content visibility to be adjusted accordingly.
