Commercial firm Nabarro Nathanson has produced its brochure on CD-Rom.
It is believed to be one of the first law firms to use multi-media in this way.
The interactive CD, which includes short video clips, contains information on the firm's partners and clients and its work. It is targeted at existing and potential clients as well as graduate trainees.
Kevin Wheeler, marketing director at Nabarros, said CD-Rom technology had allowed the firm to provide far more information than is possible in a printed brochure.
"We wanted to use this technology to give clients a far greater understanding and insight into the firm. It is also much more cost-effective and easier to update than a traditional corporate brochure."
City firm Denton Hall has also joined the multi-media age. It too has produced a multi-media CD-Rom aimed at existing and potential media technology clients. As well as details of the firm's multi-media services, the CD-Rom contains newsletters and articles, and looks at some of the key legal issues for multi-media users, with a direct link to the firm's web site.
The firm is now considering adding voice and video clips to the CD-Rom to make it more interactive.
