Norton Rose Fulbright unveils new Toronto office

Norton Rose Fulbright unveils its latest office environment

Norton Rose Fulbright has showcased its latest version of a modern law firm workspace.

The global firm’s team in Toronto is now based at 222 Bay Street, in the heart of the city’s financial district, with state-of-the-art offices across four and a half floors optimized for better collaboration and innovation.

The office includes the latest technology together with workspace designed by world-renowned architect Lehman Smith McLeish.

Highlights include glass offices to allow light to move through the office seamlessly; moveable touchscreen monitors and laptops; improved videoconferencing capabilities and sit/stand desks; colourful, contemporary Canadian art graces the corridors and boardrooms; and two wellness rooms for personal needs.

“The nature of work has changed dramatically in the last decade due to technology – and so has our industry,” Evelyn Papoutsakis, Human Resources Director. “As a result, how our people accomplish their work has evolved. The new space gives our people the tools and surroundings they need to feel engaged and do their best work for clients. Its flexibility lends itself to our cross-functional teams and encourages continuous collaboration.”

Clyde & Co partners with World Bicycle Relief Australia

World Bicycle Relief Australia will benefit from a new pro bono partnership with Clyde & Co.

The Australian non-profit is part of a global organization that provides specially designed bicycles into rural areas of developing countries where walking is the main form of transport.

Clyde & Co partner Cameron Thompson said the firm is very proud to be able to support the organization.

“World Bicycle Relief makes a tremendous impact in the communities in which it operates. We are pleased to provide ongoing legal support to World Bicycle Relief through our Pro Bono program, to ensure that precious funds raised are not needlessly diverted and can be focused on delivering outcomes to those in need."
