Discover to Whom You Should Turn for Rebranding Support

In November 2014, our firm Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP embarked on a website redesign, and several months later, at the request of our marketing and business development committee, we undertook a firm-wide rebranding.

Differentiating the client experience is a critical component of a law firm’s success, and client journey mapping is a very effective tool in helping firms differentiate that experience.

A client journey map is a visual representation of the steps and perceptions that a specific client goes through over a period of time to accomplish a specific goal that may include some interactions with your organization.
