Putting Brand and Values into Action

Norton Rose Fulbright operates in accordance with its global business principles of quality, unity and integrity. A recent example of celebrating its global brand and team culture was the firm's corporate partnership with the McLaren Mercedes Formula 1 team. It was also appointed as the global legal advisor to the McLaren Group.

Additionally, the firm participated in the 2014 BP MS 150 bicycle ride from Houston to Austin. One hundred and forty-seven riders from 24 offices around the world participated, and Norton Rose Fulbright raised more than $300,000 for multiple sclerosis charities worldwide.

In another recent global initiative, the firm sponsored the Norton Rose Fulbright Sail the World Challenge, a two-year circumnavigation of the world by the Jubilee Sailing Trust's tall ship, Lord Nelson. Upon the ride's completion, the ship will have taken its mixed crews of disabled and able-bodied sailors four times across the equator, reaching seven continents, covering 50,000 miles and visiting 30 countries.

The Greatest Show on Earth

Norton Rose Fulbright obtained landmark settlements for Feld Entertainment Inc, owner of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus, with the Humane Society of the United States, the American Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and other animal rights groups and their lawyers. Under the settlements, HSUS, ASPCA and other involved parties agreed to reimburse Feld Entertainment for more than $25 million in legal fees incurred over nearly 14 years of manufactured litigation in which the parties attempted to outlaw Feld's use of elephants in the circus and which the presiding judge ruled was frivolous, vexatious and unreasonable from inception.
