Major firm sheds tradition in favour of egalitarianism

A major Australian law firm has shared hopes that a recent office move will usher in a new era of law firm office design, helping to 'establish the legal workplace of tomorrow'

A major Australian law firm has shared hopes that a recent office move will usher in a new era of law firm office design, helping to “establish the legal workplace of tomorrow”.

King & Wood Mallesons, which relocated its office in Perth from the Central Park building to the QV.1 tower, said it had embraced an ultra-modern 100 per cent open plan design.

Collaborating with strategic design group Geyer, the firm sought to design a customized environment to boost staff interaction, internal communication and knowledge sharing.

The firm is also keen to showcase the egalitarian nature of bringing down office walls.

“By sitting alongside people of varying seniority our staff will have a 360 degree outlook and exposure to new perspectives, ideas and skills, which is key to their personal and professional development,” said partner in charge of Perth John Naughton.
