The international trade and customs law firm Barnes Richardson & Colburn has launched its new web site (www.barnesrichardson.com) as a free service to the global trade community. Importers, exporters and others seeking information, news and analysis relating to global trade regulation have, since 1997, looked to the Barnes Richardson site as a resource. Today, the site is vastly improved to increase its relevancy and the ease with which visitors can find trade-related information.
The new site is organized into categories that are relevant to industry including imports, exports, antidumping, trade agreements, and litigation. Each category has its own set of features including news items, valuable resources such as forms and checklists, articles and links.
Barnes Richardson already has plans to provide additional services through the site including a clients-only section to facilitate the process of providing legal advice. Brian Walsh, a member of the firm's Practice Committee, says: "We want to give our clients as many options as possible to contact us. This will be one additional channel."
In addition to launching the site, Barnes Richardson has adopted a new corporate identity program. "We are focusing on Barnes Richardson," Mr. Friedman says. "That is how we are known to our clients and the trade."
