Doesn't Everyone Want "Harvard On Your Side"?



I spent nearly three hours perusing the latest Super Lawyers 2011 Florida edition, and the advertisement for Chase Lawyers℠ and Barry Oliver Chase on page 20 naturally caught my eye:
HARVARD ON YOUR SIDE IN THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY
Wow -- the entire institution?

Cool!

Barry's website is also www.LawHarvard.com and starts off with a bang:
Don't YOU deserve a Harvard Lawyer?

In the entertainment industry, protecting your rights can be tricky. But it is essential for success. From music industry agreements to TV shows, film rights and celebrity endorsements, entertainment attorney Barry Oliver Chase helps individual clients and companies capitalize on their talents, products and services.

With years of hands-on experience after earning Honors degrees from both Yale and Harvard, Mr. Chase has the knowledge and skill needed to ensure that your rights as an author, artist or entertainment company are fully protected. Whether engaging in contract negotiations, demanding royalties from a record label or publishing company, or representing clients in court, Mr. Chase provides honest and professsional representation designed to produce results.
Wait a minute, Barry went to Yale too?

So now Yale is chopped liver?

How about www.YaleHarvardLaw.com, or was that already taken℠?

UPDATE:

It occurs to me this might work with other schools as well:

TAKE STETSON INTO COURT WITH YOU!

Don't YOU deserve a STETSON lawyer?

Well, you get the idea.....

  1. Also, from the website:

    THEY all have their own Harvard Lawyer.

    Don't YOU deserve one too?

    Gotta love the caps.

  2. Re the Harvard pedigree: (1) I work with quite a few Harvard grads at my firm. Some are exceptional lawyers. Some (I'm actually thinking of a double-Harvard grad right now) could not litgate himself out of a paper bag. He's an academic and although he's a "litigator," the powers that be don't let him go to court for obvious reasons.

    (2) Judge Zloch within the last few years sanctioned the shit out of a particularly obnoxious Harvard grad for filing baseless and offensive pleadings in the Southern District.

    Some are good, some suck.
