Oliff requested a site with a robust content management system that is visually-stunning, responsive, intuitive, and performant. It was also a critical goal for the new site to provide the sense of professional friendliness that matches their company culture and values. Lasly, a major requirement for Oliff based on their business offerings and clients was that the site needed to reliably translate into Chinese and Japanese.


Materiell worked closely with Oliff to redesign and redevelop their new site in WordPress so it easily handles the needs of the internal team and reliably delivers content to their clients around the world. Materiell consulted on the art direction of content layout and use of custom photography of their staff and offices throughout the site to really highlight who they really are and to welcome their visitors. 

Since Oliff wanted to reflect the professional friendliness of their company culture, Materiell created a custom directory to showcase their attorneys and staff and staff profile pages to reflect their values.  The staff directory is easy to search and the profile pages feature a large, friendly photograph along with their biographies, credentials, and accolades.

Materiell developed the site as a responsive, multi-language, WordPress website with English as the primary language and Chinese and Japanese as additional languages. The language translations are able to be manually edited so the Oliff team can ensure precise translations are provided.

In addition to the requirements from the Oliff team, Materiell makes all of our newly designed and developed sites fully accessible, complying with the WCAG 2.1 Level AA guidelines whenever possible.  Oliff’s new site recently scored a 95 for Accessibility in Google Lighthouse.
