Law firm Nabarro Nathanson has undergone a full rebrand, revamping its logo and shortening its name to Nabarro, in a bid to shake its ‘best- kept secret’ status. Branding consultancy Identica was appointed to design the new corporate identity as well as a range of communication tools for Nabarro. The new brand was unveiled last month.
According to Dana Robertson, creative director at Identica, the rebrand reflects the growing warmth within the professional and financial services industry towards adopting branding and communications techniques. The legal sector – noted for its cynical attitude towards branding in the past – is realising its potential to act as a vital strategic tool to stand out in a crowded and competitive marketplace.

GO FAST is a motorcycle manufacturer in the southern United States. Though sales have been steady, profits have declined because of increasing operational costs. The Board of Directors felt a fresh look at the operations side was needed. They developed a 5-year plan to increase operating efficiency and set out to find someone to lead the effort.
Four months ago, GO FAST found what they saw as “the person” to be the new operations director and develop a new operational plan to reduce costs. Jill Jones had an outstanding reputation as operations director for a manufacturer of a closely related product.

Bigstore Furniture Ltd (“Bigstore”) is a retailer of household furniture. The company announced its summer sale on 1 July 2009 by placing the following advertisement in several national daily newspapers in the UK.
BIGSTORE’S SUMMER MEGASALE!
Prices cut by up to 70%!
Special offer! Anyone purchasing an Italia leather three-seater sofa by cash or credit card at the reduced price of £750 will receive an Italia leather two-seater sofa priced at £500 in the sale absolutely free of charge!
This offer is available at all our stores until 31st August 2009.
(The advertisement concluded by listing in small print all the company’s stores throughoutthe country.)
On 5 August 2009 Susan took a copy of the advertisement with her and called at her local Bigstore to inspect the Italia sofas. She spoke to Ben, the Sales Manager, and told him that she had decided to purchase the sofas subject to first talking this over with her husband. Ben told Susan that the company only had a limited number of two-seaters so it was agreed that she would leave £100 in return for his agreement to hold the sofas for 48 hours. Ben told her that he would deduct the £100 from the purchase price if Susan went ahead with the purchase within that time period.
On 7 August 2009 Susan called at the store to purchase the sofas and spoke to Ben who was very apologetic but explained that his staff had forgotten to reserve the sofas for her. He explained that in any event the two-seaters were “subject to availability” (as stated in various notices around the store), and the company had now run out of them. Ben also said that “…obviously the two-seaters were a free gift and were subject to availability.” He
pointed out that the Italia three-seater sofa was still available but the price had now gone back up to £2,500.
