Hangover in the mix for Melbourne lawyers

Hangover in the mix for Melbourne lawyers

Recruitment companies Burgess Paluch and Kaleidoscope Legal Recruitment decided to show a film that a lot of lawyers could relate to at their recent clients’ movie night – The Hangover Part III.

Recruitment companies Burgess Paluch and Kaleidoscope Legal Recruitment decided to show a film that a lot of lawyers could relate to at their recent clients’ movie night – The Hangover Part III.

“We were thinking of a movie that would help our branding and that was artsy and intellectual and would appeal to lawyers and the legal fraternity, so we came up with The Hangover,” joked Burgess Paluch director Paul Burgess when speaking to Folklaw.

Kidnap plots, trips to Mexico and swinging out of the Caesar’s Palace sign in Las Vegas – sounds like a regular weekend to Folklaw.

The “low-key mixer” at Hoyts Cinemas in Melbourne Central on 29 May was attended by around 300 people – including law firm partners, HR managers, lawyers and legal secretaries.

Among the firms and companies whose staff were enjoying free drinks, schmoozing and tasteful cinema on the night were: Moray and Agnew; HWL Ebsworth; Madgwicks; Herbert Smith Freehills; Minter Ellison; Maddocks; Herbert Geer; Gilbert + Tobin; QBE; Wesfarmers Insurance, CGU and barristers from the Victorian Bar.

The recruitment companies run these movies nights a couple of times a year and previous films that have been shown include James Bond and Wall Street.

“This time we picked something that was a bit kind of silly to get people to have a laugh, get out of the office and move away from the demands and stress of practice and just ... enjoy it,” said Burgess.

Free drinks, popcorn and choc tops – Folklaw is just upset we weren’t invited...
