Cook & James Unveils New Logo, Relaunched Website

Atlanta-Area Real Estate Attorney Firm's Web Redesign Echoes Creative Corporate Culture

Cook & James, real estate attorneys who are pioneers of at-home closings, unveiled a new logo and redesigned website this month to better reflect how the firm's corporate culture is represented and viewed externally. Based in the Atlanta suburb of Alpharetta, Cook & James attorneys serve Connecticut, Georgia, New York and South Carolina and offer a signature service, at-home closings, in which attorneys bring the real estate closing anywhere that is convenient to the client.

"Over the past decade and 120,000 closings we have evolved," said Kara Cook, co-founding partner at Cook & James. "Our old logo - the scales of justice - just no longer told our whole story. While we will be no less ruthlessly and expertly 'legal,' the intertwined C and J in our new logo represent that we are fundamentally connected. To each other and to our clients. Plus, we think it's a really cool optical illusion."

According to Cook and her business partner Heather James, the new website offers a vehicle to better profile tenets of the firm's corporate culture and showcase its "canons" which direct all activity from internal interactions to client relationships.

"Our new site better represents that we are at once reliable, trustworthy, expert attorneys but we don't take ourselves too seriously. Witness our laughing leather jacket GIF - the best part about which is that we finally know how to pronounce GIF!" James quipped.

The "laughing leather jacket GIF" is a set of moving images featuring, initially, Cook and James looking ready to conquer the world, then busting into laughter.

Woven throughout the new website is a purple hue, a color retained from the original logo and corporate branding. Purple represents the calm stability of blue combined with the fierce energy of red. The new site also features snappy copy that captures the firm's playful and creative corporate culture.

Website features include company background and executive bio pages, checklists and forms, and descriptions of the at-home real estate closing solutions offered. Additionally, the new site features a media coverage section and a page on which Cook and James will curate important news links and industry trends, thus offering thought leadership to friends, clients and colleagues. A blog page will be updated a few times a month on Tuesdays and Thursdays and will be a venue to host ongoing features including:

  • T4, Totally True Travel Tales, a light-hearted compilation of strange but true, and sometimes hilarious, things that have happened to the Cook & James team as they travel around delivering their pioneering service, at-home closings
  • Guest blogs by esteemed real estate colleagues and professionals
  • Q&As with thought leaders at Cook & James and from industry experts

The new website went live in early February and the new logo was prominent at their booth at the Georgia REALTORS Inaugural and Legislative Conference & Expo, February 5-8 in Atlanta.
