Peter O’Connor & Son

Project overview

Based in Waterford city, Peter O’Connor & Sons is one of the leading law firms in the southeast of Ireland. Established in 1920, they provide a full range of legal services to families and private individuals, businesses, farming and agri-business, government and public sector, charities and not for profit voluntary bodies.

Their firm is built on the achievements of past and present members, none more so than its founding father, Peter O’Connor. An Olympic champion, world record holder and respected businessman, he took over the practice in 1920, and helped it grow to what it is today; a regional firm with a global perspective.

A key aspect of the website is its ‘responsiveness’ (the way it adapts to mobile devices). We can’t emphasise how important this has become, especially when you consider that 3 out of 4 people who access the Internet now do so on a mobile device. We also photographed all their staff and set them against various backdrop images of recognisable Waterford landmarks.

Another important aspect of this website was the CMS (content management system). They wanted full control of the website so they could update the content themselves. With that in mind, we built the site on Concrete 5 – a very easy to use CMS – and ideally suited to a website such as this which has no ecommerce functionality or complicated backend.
