More than a quarter of the nation’s top 200 law firms now have mobile websites, an increase of 46% from last year. This is the finding of the Second Annual AmLaw 200 and Global 100 Mobile Web Survey, conducted by the Law Firm Mobile blog.
The survey looked at which firms from the AmLaw 200 and the Global 100 have created mobile sites. It also looked at the types of content they published to those sites, how firms enhanced their sites, and where some sites need improvement.
Among the survey’s key findings:
- Among AmLaw 200 firms, 54 (27%) have mobile sites, an increase of 17 firms since 2011. Of firms on the Global 100 list, 29 have mobile sites, an increase of seven firms from 2011.
- Of the firms that have a mobile website, most (67%) have between seven and nine types of content on the site.
The most popular type of content these firms have on their sites are:
- Professional biographies (59).
- Offices (53).
- Practice areas (52).
- News (45).
- About the firm (42).
- Careers (40).
- Events (38).
- Publications (34).
Surprisingly, one of the least common content types is “contact us” information, included on just 13 sites.
