“Solicitors couldn’t give a XXXX for anyone else”
Barristers’ chambers have been traditionally somewhat conservative in their approach to marketing. But the cutting-edge lot at Yorkshire’s Broadway House Chambers break the mould.
Having a pop at the competition, a chambers-branded glass proclaims:
“Solicitors couldn’t give a XXXX for anyone else”.
But it all seems to be in good humour. A spokesman for the chambers strongly denied a report by legal blog RollOnFriday that the mug was made with a view to launching a direct access service in competition with law firms, stating that they were actually produced for a charity pub quiz event “exclusively for solicitors”.
He said the beer glasses were “a light-hearted way of helping our guests — many of whom will not have known each other — to ‘break the ice’ and have a fun, relaxing evening, and the slogan was a quite obvious tip-of-the-hat to a well known beer advert”.
Happily, the quiz raised £1,000 for the Manuel Bravo Project, a charity which provides legal advice and representation to vulnerable asylum seekers.
