(click ad, scanned from the ABA Journal) It truly is a marvel how so many major law firms abuse animal metaphors in their ad campaigns. Day Pitney does it. Zuckerman Spaeder does it. Dykema does it. And, Bingham does it. And they continue to do it with this goofy diversity-touting execution. The flying elephants, turtles, crocodiles, manta rays and whatnot represent, I guess, all the races of the world they have working in their offices. You guys seriously need a new ad agency to separate yourselves from the pack.
