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.”
