Sherrard Kuzz LLP is one of Canada’s leading employment and labour law firms representing the interests of management. They were recently named one of Canada’s Top 10 Employment and Labour Boutiques by Canadian Lawyer. The firm is actively involved in a variety of speaking engagements, and firm members regularly contribute articles in major publications.

Keeping their site up to date is of critical importance to the firm. ChromeMedia Inc. has implemented a variety of web-based systems that help keep their site updated in a timely fashion.
These systems allow Sherrard Kuzz to keep an active web presence and this has lead to both an increase in new clients, while also keeping existing clients current.
The website was evaluated using the most current web accessibility tools recommended by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).
The plan we put together for implementing the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) standards for the Sherrard Kuzz website included keeping the aesthetics and the usability of the site intact. We were able to go through all 200+ pages and present a fully web accessible and HTML5 / CSS3 validated website to the client.
We created a web-based registration system for Sherrard Kuzz's speaking engagements. This system consists of a series of web forms that site visitors fill out in order to register for an upcoming event.

Once submitted, the form data is automatically sent to a Google spreadsheet that the client has access to. Implementing this system has enabled Sherrard Kuzz to greatly reduce the administrative costs of managing speaking engagement registrations.

Sherrard Kuzz requires regular updates to their website. Normally we would implement a database system to make it easy to do regular updates in a standard format. However, their hosting account does not offer support for a database. As a result, we implemented a novel solution for the client. We chose to use Json for data storage (serialization). Json is great because it's baked right into the two most prominent web application languages, PHP and JavaScript.

This system allows us to easily make developer updates to publications, newsletters, and speaking engagements. Implementing this system has saved our clients on update costs while also boosting the performance of their site.

Sherrard Kuzz LLP needed their website to be accessible and to work on mobile platforms. By writing clean, beautiful, and fully validated HTML5 we made sure that the site is as fully supported by the browsers of today and tomorrow, including mobile.
Sherrard Kuzz, like all organizations, can't avoid the scramble that typically takes place when a new browser version comes out and “messes everything up.” Fortunately, we've designed this site in a way that will boast longevity, is easier to maintain and demonstrates the professionalism that Sherrard Kuzz brings to all their client projects.
