Chicago – Sidley Austin LLP has launched a new application, or app, called “Sidley Mobile” for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. The app serves as a means through which clients can conveniently access client alerts, Firm news and a contact list for every lawyer at the Firm.
Sidley Mobile users will have the ability to select which practice areas they would like to receive content from, allowing them to tailor the information they receive to align with their specific areas of interest.
“We recognize that clients want content on their terms, not ours,” said Samir A. Gandhi, partner and co-chair of the Firm’s Marketing and Practice Development Committee. “There is an ever-increasing reliance on mobile devices to consume information, and with our new app clients will have the ability to access our content at the time and in the manner they prefer.”
“Our clients expect timely and actionable information about ongoing legal developments,” said Hank Barry, partner and co-founder of the Firm’s Palo Alto office. “Like all of us, they are increasingly mobile. The Sidley Mobile app reflects our ongoing commitment to change and grow with our client community.”
The creation of the Sidley Mobile app is another step forward in the expansion of the Firm’s social media presence, which also includes pages on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter, all of which are featured on the latest version of the Firm’s Web site, Sidley.com.
