As many of our clients and friends of the firm would be aware, Brydens Lawyers has for some time advertised on 2GB. We are also the sponsor of the Continuous Call Team.
Recently a number of clients and members of the public have made contact with us to express concerns with respect to Brydens Lawyers advertising on 2GB following the controversial remarks made by Mr Alan Jones when referencing the New Zealand Prime Minister, Ms Jacinda Ardern.
The advertising by Brydens Lawyers on 2GB should not in any way be construed as an endorsement or condoning of the controversial remarks made by Mr Jones. In fact, we find the remarks grossly offensive.
Any language which imports even the mere suggestion of violence towards women is totally unacceptable.
As a father of three girls and the employer of many women I believe that it is incumbent upon all of us to ensure that women are treated with respect and dignity at all times. Words matter and we must choose our words carefully. Intemperate remarks can have serious consequences.
I am currently reviewing our current advertising relationship with 2GB.
