Communicating a fresh approach to pro bono

New Perimeter

The challenge

New Perimeter, a non-profit organization established by DLA Piper, collaborates with charitable organizations, governments and academic institutions to provide pro bono legal assistance in underserved regions around the world.

The organization approached us to overhaul their web presence to better communicate the programme’s unique vision, mission and focus areas.
