Trevor founded Square Eye Ltd in 1999 and since then has led design-and-build projects for 150+ barristers' chambers, law firms, businesses and non-profits.
He works closely with leading sets of chambers such as Essex Court, Garden Court and Monckton, as well as law firms in the UK and abroad.
Square Eye offers a wide variety of design and digital marketing skills, but our special expertise is harnessing for law firms the power of WordPress - the world's leading website platform - through customisation, extensions, integrations and custom programming.
We design websites in-house and also act as build partner to other leading design agencies. We frequently step in when firms want to migrate an existing site to WordPress, or want a rock-solid ongoing support partner.
Our team of developers, designers, content editors and project managers is one of these modern office-free ones, spread across several countries and joined via Slack and Skype.
