Westlaw is launching a new logo that is based on the company’s long history in the U.S. law enforcement community.
The new logo will be called the “Wood Law Office Sign,” a nod to the many years that the Wood Law Office has served as the headquarters of the Westlaw Office in Seattle.
The Wood Law office sign will also incorporate the new logo’s icon that appears to be a “H” on the left side of the office sign.
The “H,” which stands for “Home,” is a nod towards the Woodland Hills neighborhood that sits on the Westlake neighborhood of Seattle, the home of Westlaw.
The logo, designed by John F. McElwee, will be unveiled on Jan. 19, 2020, and will be available for pre-order at Westlaw locations throughout the country.
Westlaw has said it expects to sell the logo for $100 million.
In a statement, Westlaw said it wanted to reflect the diversity of the law firm’s employees and clients.
It added that the logo was created as a way to provide a cohesive and visually pleasing visual identity to our customers.
“The Woodlaw office sign was designed as a means of honoring the history and tradition of the Woodlands, which encompasses a number of different buildings that serve as headquarters of law firms across the country,” Westlaw spokesperson Emily Pomeranz said in the statement.
“It is a reflection of the diverse history and heritage of the city of Seattle and the many law offices that are located in the region.”
In addition to the new Westlaw logo, the law offices in the Woodlawn neighborhood will have a new name, as will the headquarters in the West Lake neighborhood of Fremont.
The law offices at the University of Washington, the University at Buffalo and the University in Kansas City also have new names and logos that incorporate the “H.”
