Frasers Law Company (Frasers) is delighted to announce that has been recognised as a 2013 Webby Award Official Honouree in the website category for legal web design, in the 17th Annual Webby Awards. Hailed as the “Internet’s highest honour” by The New York Times, The Webby Awards, presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS), are the leading global awards honouring excellence on the Internet. The IADAS, which nominates and selects The Webby Award Winners, is comprised of web industry experts, including media mogul Arianna Huffington, Skype CEO Tony Bates, Mozilla CEO and Chair Mitchell Baker, Instagram co-founder Kevin Systrom, mobile-phone inventor Martin Cooper, and StumbleUpon founderGarrett Camp.

Frasers’ website upgrade got underway in late 2012, when the Firm identified strategic web developer, Norex, to work with Frasers on the project. The site was designed to provide clients with greater access to information about Frasers, as well as details of the Firm’s expertise. Clients can now more easily access previous editions of Frasers’ newsletters and legal updates, and can also sign up for updates on the website. The upgraded website went live in March of this year.

“Honourees like Frasers Law Company are setting the standard for innovation and creativity on the Internet,” said David-Michel Davies, Executive Director, The Webby Awards. “It is an incredible achievement to be selected among the best from the 11,000 entries we received this year.”

Honourees in the website category are selected for recognition based on excellence in the following criteria: content, structure and navigation, visual design, functionality, interactivity and overall experience.

“We are thrilled that Frasers’ upgraded website has received such a significant global accolade. It was a huge team effort which contributed to the success of this project, and as a Firm, we are all very proud of this achievement. We are also most grateful to the dedication and creative excellence of the design team at Norex,” said Mark Fraser, Managing Partner, Frasers Law Company.

 The 17th Annual Webby Awards received 11,000 entries from over 60 countries.
