Your legal partner

Transforming the brand of a prestigious 95 year-old corporate law firm.

The Challenge

Kott Gunning is one of Perth’s most respected commercial law firms and well-known legal brands. However, the brand was no longer working for the firm. The identity, designed for another era, wasn’t providing the cut-through or brand image required in a competitive legal market. The firm’s marketing communications and customer experience were also tired and inconsistent and in need of a refresh to bring uniformity and direction to the way Kott Gunning told its remarkable story.

The Insight

We conducted brand workshops and interviews with the partners and people at Kott Gunning and discovered the firm had a clear and distinctive set of organisational values. These values, which brought everyone together, were focused on the firm’s clients and their needs. A legal brand comparison audit also revealed where the brand needed to be repositioned to stand apart in a cluttered market.

The Impact

DIA Brands totally reinvented the Kott Gunning brand and honed the firm’s focus with a clearly defined brand position and brand story. A new website now gives clear visibility to the firm’s legal offering while providing clients with one of the best user experiences in the market. DIA Brands also established a system that allows the marketing team to roll-out new digital and printed communications in-house to deliver a consistent and professional brand experience across all client touchpoints.
