Fantastic New Zealand firm website
23 October 2009
This week's "what were they thinking
" law firm website comes courtesy of Equity Law
in New Zealand.
The About Us picture looks like an early Village People publicity shot. Instruct Equity Law, and a builder, an evil dictator and a three year girl can help you untangle New Zealand's immigration laws. And, for reassurance, Equity Law's founder (and seemingly only lawyer) Evgeny Orlov
is resplendent in wig and gown, brandishing a gavel.

Orlov not only knows about law - he's also a fan of Buddhism, polo and justice. In fact his love of Buddhism and justice seem to blend in his personal statement. A RollOnFriday t-shirt goes to anyone who can translate the following:
"In a similar manner to the ancient arts of budo law is a discipline, which trains the ethical character, the fighting spirit and the will.
[Law] represents the ultimate battle of mind, will and knowledge. Equity equates with equality, fairness and justice. This is the philosophy and approach of the firm, which has developed a new vision of law for the 21st century."
