Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg goes for a mobile two-fer presence with a mobile application and mobile compatible web site. Interestingly, Davies went with Blackberry as its first app, bucking the majority of similar firms who have first published an iPhone/iOS compatible app.

Features of the Blackberry application include:

  • Firm news, announcements and publications
  • Searchable directory of lawyers
  • Listings of recent transactions and cases
  • Presentations from the “Davies Academy”
  • Office locations

One unique aspect of this firm’s mobile efforts is the firm localized its Blackberry and mobile web app for French speakers. On the down side, graphically speaking, their app needs an upgrade.
