Award-winning, top 50 independent UK law firm Burges Salmon has successfully upgraded its digital solution from Sitecore v8.2 to v10 and moved hosting into Azure Cloud - an update that will see the firm ready to deliver best-in-class digital enhancements and continuously improve its online presence.

UNRVLD has partnered with Burges Salmon since 2015, redeveloping the firm’s digital strategy and ensuring its Sitecore platform is fit for purpose. As a business, this is our first Sitecore version 10 upgrade and the solution was delivered on time and on budget.  Burges Salmon has a legacy web-forms solution not MVC, so upgrading it to version 10 came with several challenges which the team worked hard to overcome. Despite facing learnings and unknowns along the way, we successfully released the upgraded site onto new PaaS infrastructure without a hitch. With a still freshly-merged team behind us, this is an incredible feat and is a true representation of what we are capable of achieving.

Ian Hislam, Senior Digital Marketing Manager at Burges Salmon extended his gratitude to the team:

Burges Salmon worked with UNRVLD to upgrade our Sitecore version from v8.2 to v10 and move our hosting into Azure Cloud. The implementation was very smooth and we did not experience any downtime with our website. The agency has been extremely efficient, and both project teams collaborated efficiently to make for a seamless transformation.

We are looking forward to helping Burges Salmon capitalise on its new upgrade with some impressive site enhancements, using the firm’s best-in-class technology to skyrocket its online presence. Again, another huge congratulations to the team.
