Bonkers Law firm website: Anything but law

A German firm has invested heavily in a beautiful website which depicts its lawyers as swimming, racing, boxing philosophers.

The 20 solicitors who comprise Greenfort spared no expense realising their vision. They even hired a fleet of trawlers so four of them could pretend to be fishermen.

   
All the actual fishing was done by an associate.

The others prayed for sharks



That's just the homepage. There are photoshoots at a warehouse, in a vintage barbers and at a guitar shop. Even at a race track, definitely not because a couple of partners wanted to thrash classic cars for the afternoon.

  We need a trainee, they said, it's important, they said.



 
"THIS IS COSTING US A FORTUNE!"

"WHAT?"

"THIS IS COSTING US A FORTUNE!"

"HAHA, YES, FASTER!"




  That's the problem with old cars - unreliable 


Making slightly more sense, possibly, the contact section revolves around staff playing a 'contact' sport. Although it does get very dark very quickly.

    Hooray!

Greenfort also bravely takes it "in the ring".

It's his firm and he'll play boxing coach as long as he wants to



Then there's a  "Lounge" section, which other firms still haven't realised is a vital part of the legal offering.

    RollOnFriday is too young to click on the "Red hot" or "Well matured" links


All becomes clear in the employee profiles section, which adopts a question and answer format so that prospective clients and current doctors can see what's going on in the minds of Greenfort staff.

Well done Greenfort for successfully looking like anything but a law firm. If you've spotted similar, tip off RollOnFriday.

There are Chris Eubank levels of 'lack of self awareness' going on here...

Chris Eubank levels for goodness sakes - that is one above North Korea on the 'lack of self awareness' scale!

Did anybody else also think that the "dive in, feel good" guy is about to hit the water very painfully ... face first...?

To be fair to Greenfort, I think it speaks volumes that they are not embarrassed about their inclusion in the Bonkers Websites (http://www.greenfort.de/en/greenfort/)
