Moorestown, NJ (PRWEB) May 9, 2006
Holland & Hart and Reed Smith took top honors in the 2006-2007 web site ratings and review of the 250 largest law firms in the United States. The independent survey was conducted by marketing attorney Micah Buchdahl of InternetMarketingAttorney.Com and based on five criteria: design, content, usability, interactivity and intangibles.
Sites were awarded up to 10 points for each measure, for a maximum total score of 50. The high score was 45. Thirty firms rated a 38 or better to receive platinum, gold or silver honors in the U.S. large firm category. For the third time, reviews and awards were expanded to include a small/mid-size law firm category. The international category reviews (for non-U.S. firms) will be released in June.
“This is the fourth time I’ve gone through the IMA process and law firm web sites continue to improve by leaps and bounds,” said Buchdahl. “It was my intention to discontinue the reviews and Nifty 50 revue after the 2004-2005 edition, but many colleagues asked that I continue. And there were many new sites to see.”
A complete scoring list as well as details on the review process is posted at InternetMarketingAttorney.com.
