Let’s cut to the (ambulance) chase. Lawyers are dull. And the only thing worse than a dull lawyer is a lawyer who tries to be “with it”.
However, this has not deterred law firm Lester Aldridge from trying to break the stereotype – and falling flat on their writs.
The company has produced four postcard mailers which show the firm’s partners in unusual situations, while still dressed in their suits. One, for example, is body-boarding, while another is mountain biking. Crazy guys, huh?
Whether this “extreme sports” attitude will extend to the courts is unknown. But the idea of a learned counsel telling a judge to “chill man, and stop being so harsh with, like, the gavel,” is definitely worth losing a case for.
