Boutique Washington, D.C. Law Firm; Global Perspective


The Modern Firm has been designing law firm websites for over 15 years: it's rare that we come across a legal practice area we haven't seen before. So it was particularly exciting to work with The Law Offices of Peter C. Hansen, LLC, which introduced us to several new areas. Among the firm's areas of expertise are African investment law and World Bank debarment.

The various unique areas in which the firm practices call for a unique team. Principal Attorney Peter Hansen is a multilingual public international law specialist and trial and appellate attorney. His diverse roles have included work for the World Bank, as a Legal Officer in the United Nations Office of Legal Affairs, and as an International Law professor. Counsel Renaud Beauchard, also multilingual, is a lawyer, professor and author of essays and screenplays. His international work emphasizes human rights, social responsibility, the protection of biodiversity and community engagement, and responsible investment in Africa. Finally, Counsel Mike King applies his skills at home and abroad, specializing in employment law and employment litigation in the District of Columbia as well as in counseling businesses on international investment projects and business ventures. Somehow he also finds time to play percussion in several bands made up of lawyers who rock for charitable causes. 

The Website

"Boutique Law Firm — Global Perspective"

If the above wasn't a strong enough hint, here's the key to the firm's new website: feature the attorneys and their incredible credentials. A firm as uniquely qualified as this one arises from its unique members. They and their backgrounds are, at base, the value offered.

Given the firm's diversity of complex work, we also built a custom resource and blog area for the website that will allow the firm to provide links and commentary related to each of its core areas of practice. This area will go live later, when the firm is ready: we believe strongly in building a website in phases to accommodate both a firm's workload and its evolution over time. Because our modular site functionality options are pre-designed for law firm needs, our clients don't need to expect extensive or cost-prohibitive development time down the road when they are ready to take their websites to the next level.
