Smith, Gambrell & Russell, LLP announced today the launch of its new legal portal. Log on to SGRLaw.com at 2:00 p.m. today to get a taste for the Firm that is raising the bar, permanently changing its legal presence on the Web. The launch ends a four-month development process and continues SGR’s long tradition of providing innovative ways to deliver outstanding service to the legal profession and our many clients.
“As the legal profession begins to embrace doing business on the Internet, we are tapped with the responsibility, as a major regional firm, to increase our levels of service to our client base,” said Stephen Forte, managing partner and chairman of the executive committee. “This is a responsibility that our Firm takes seriously and our new and improved Web presence is not only focused on delivering more information about our Firm’s activities, but also on providing real-time breaking news and other useful information to our clients.”
An expanded Web presence is a trend for large law firms and their clients as they move to strengthen bonds and increase the flow of proactive, timely communication and information. SGR’s new portal is designed to put maximum information at the user’s fingertips instantly. Innovative design delivers easy navigation and quick access to accurate information in a creative, seamless way.
The technically-advanced features of the portal are the real-time delivery of up-to-the minute business, legal, financial and government news from Yellowbrix, one of the Internet’s most trusted news and content providers and an advanced site search feature that serves as an instant guide for detailed results on any particular topic.
“We needed to represent the Firm’s commitment to using technology in the work place and the Web site was the most profound medium to showcase our commitment to our clients, law students and other potential recruits across the country and the world,” said Forte. “As a Firm, we are constantly expanding and refining our new generation of guidance.”
“One of the cornerstone thoughts in the development of the new portal was to represent the overall speed, quality and efficiency of service provided by SGR,” said Director of Firm Image, Connie Frost. “SGRLaw.com can be used as an instrument when evaluating our Firm’s capabilities.”
