get sht done

He's finished his cereal, now it's time to GSD, baby! (Sticks out tongue, makes devil horns, begins checking defined terms).


The manliest men man the desks at De Boer Egberts, as documented exhaustively by the Dutch firm's Bonkers Law Firm Website.

DBE’s six lawyers differentiate themselves from their rivals by keeping the legal stuff to a minimum, and devoting their site to an album of 42 - yes, 42 - ravishing monochrome images of the boys at work.

The site leads with a portrait of the lads queuing up to be in Top Gear's studio audience.

dba

Brand on the run.


Their profiles are even moodier.

dbb

Bismilla! Nooo!


A few perfunctory paragraphs set out the firm's practice areas, then the lawyers get back to what's really important: the expansive photo shoot. RollOnFriday injected itself with testosterone and took a look through the highlights.


db1

The fellas relax after breaking out of a shipping container.


db2

Winners hang their jabot on a punching dummy.


db3

Other firms don’t feature Saul Goodman, for some reason.


db4

Call security, we've got a dad lad photocopying.


db5

Trying not to think about that shipping container.


db6

He's dropped his favourite Ferrari-branded poppit.


db7

They can't resist its pull.


happy

Alexa, define nervous excitement.


db8

"He only ever uses me to play the opening chords of Mr Brightside - please, kill me."


petronas

Each meeting room comes with a work-out station from which the alpha lawyer can direct operations.


db9

You're right, Dutch Sting, justice IS blind.


db10

Full wall dedicated to a Suits mural. Full wall.


db12

Reinforce dominance by communicating with junior lawyers via loudhailer.


db13

A lone woman picks her way through the drum kits, pull-up bars and slam balls.


db14

Oscar reminds Jack what they did to survive in the shipping container.


db15

Booze 'O Clock is not representative of the firm's actual preference for Heineken 0.0.


db16

The exact moment the photographer got cracked in the head with a signed football.


db17

White collar today, Black Sabbath till he dies!


db18

Anyone caught discussing 'feelings' gets the helium.


db19

Some days he wonders if a van Ruisdael print would have been nicer.


Well done De Boer Egberts for single-handedly buying up Harley Davidson's run of coffee table books. If your firm's website is awash with machotivational art, or is otherwise unique, get shit done and write in.

Ha!!!

Our Managing Partner is in his mid 60s and dresses like that. I suspect he thinks he looks cool but actually looks a complete tool.

"He only ever uses me to play the opening chords of Mr Brightside - please, kill me."

 

It's a bass, not a guitar. And the opening to Mr Brightside is picked, not chords.

By all means mock them for the rest of it, but leave the poor P-bass alone!

Personal bio 23 September 22 10:13

“Outside of work the lawyers at DBE enjoy playing in their dad band, brewing their own pilsner and barbecuing whilst wearing aprons with ironic slogans”

Maybe part of the reason the guitar wants to die is because the guy is trying to play the opening chords of mr brightside on it even though it’s a bass and the opening is picked.

There are only two things I can't stand in this world: People who are intolerant of other people's cultures, and the Dutch."

Photographer: what you want?

DBE: make us look like a bunch of hipster 2-hats

Photographer: I got you fam

What would Mike Brown of BLM make of this? No ties? No short-sleeved shirts? No hair dye? He'd be spitting feathers.

Guffawing, here. The lack of irony, the self aggrandisement in these shots, matched with the writer's comments, is lovely. Perhaps this album is a genius strategy to appeal to their dadlad target client group? 

SecularJurist 23 September 22 21:53

That shipping container does feature a great deal.

Is kidnapping an area of practice?

bananaman 24 September 22 00:03

This is ridiculous. The picture is of a bass guitar and the opening to Mr Brightside is picked and......zzzzzzz.

Anon 24 September 22 10:14

Still far too many firms run by alpha male dinosaurs.
Odd for a profession that has had a female majority joining it for a decade. 
What’s gone wrong here?

Anon 26 September 22 11:01

"50 years experience" - since 1995.  Clearly not great with numbers.  Must the helium.

anonymous 29 September 22 13:49

Haha how pathetic is this site…. Given the comments and Jamie Hamilton’s review, I can tell that all of you have very tiny dicks. You guys just can’t stand the fact that they are good looking, have a successful running law firm and are having fun together. Learn from it and start doing something with your lives!
