Emily Duke, a 20-year veteran of Fredrikson & Byron, began a new chapter in her career with the creation of Duke Law Office and CyberSmartLaw. The two ventures, which ultimately serve to complement one another, are manifestations of two of her great passions. Duke Law Office provides business and commercial litigation services to a variety of clients. CyberSmartLaw, on the other hand, operates as more of a niche service, providing consulting services to companies looking to protect their trade secrets, sensitive information and industry know-how from a variety of sources (hackers, employee theft, corporate espionage).
Upon making the decision to build her own practice, Emily approached us to create a flexible digital presence on her behalf, with the ability to grow as she did. Per one of our favorite philosophies to “think big, start small, scale fast” a phased approach was undertaken for this project, ensuring that the site supports Duke Law Office/CyberSmartLaw to the greatest extent possible as it grows and evolves.
Phase 1 included developing a strong web presence that portrays both professionalism and simplicity via a Drupal platform. A responsive design, which conveys the credibility & competency that Emily holds with her previous employment, education, and portfolio, as well as serving to differentiate Duke Law Office/Cyber Smart Law was implemented. Additional site functionality included the incorporation of a robust blog, as well as a site architecture which would support Duke Law Office and Cyber Smart Law eventually being split into two separate sites.
I really enjoyed working with Irish Titan. This was my first foray into creating a website, and Irish Titan assembled a team of folks to work with me. They provided excellent professional advice with respect to how search engines operate and how different aspects of my website design would affect visibility to search engines. My team listened carefully to what I wanted and brought fantastic creativity to the project. I love the resulting branding and the clean lines of the site Irish Titan developed!
