McQuarrie Hunter LLP has roots in New Westminster and Surrey extending back to 1936 and a reputation for professional excellence – all seven founding partners were appointed QCs during their careers. Over the subsequent years the firm has continued to build a solid full-service practice that embraces a strong commitment to client service, local community and ongoing professional development for lawyers and staff.
That the past year has been a busy one for the firm is an understatement. They came to Skunkworks initially looking to rebrand the firm and refresh their website but just to make it interesting, in December 2010, the firm took the decision to consolidate its three branches into one new location in the new state-of-the-art offices located in the Central City Tower in Surrey. The move made good business sense for a firm that is growing and extending its hand and service offerings to the many business clients moving into Surrey and the surrounding areas. Given the easy transit access by Skytrain and bus and the firm can continue to service it’s New Westminster client base and simultaneously improve access to quality legal services for Surrey business clients and individuals.
The move from historic to ultra-modern premises required us to stop and take stock of what kind of look and feel was required to match the firms new home. Lucky for us Central City Tower and environs has no shortage of interesting features and who doesn’t love to use modern architecture as a spring board?
While the firm packed boxes and got ready to move Skunkworks developed a new logo and built them a new website based on our customized JetPack system complete with a robust content management systems that includes cross-referencing for news, practice areas and individual lawyers. The management team was keen to keep the navigation for the site very focused and wanted to showcase the new amalgamated offices as much as possible. To this end we used a lot of interior shots of the offices and blended them with bio photos of the lawyers and the occasional stock photography image to create a website that is a reflection of the firms new premises and location.
As the firm settles in plans are afoot to continue profile building and spreading the word that McQuarrie Hunter LLP is the” Go To” firm for small to large sized businesses in Surrey, New Westminster and Vancouver.
