Norton Rose Fulbright and McLaren-Honda continues unique global partnership

Firm March 21, 2017

This is the only partnership between a global law firm and a Formula 1™ team in the world today.

Global law firm Norton Rose Fulbright is delighted to announce the continuation of its successful global partnership with McLaren-Honda for a further two years.

Norton Rose Fulbright remains as the global legal adviser to the McLaren Technology Group, working alongside its highly experienced in-house counsel on all aspects of its legal requirements including: corporate transactions; consulting on commercial and contractual matters; advising on intellectual property matters, including management of the global trade mark portfolio; advising on real estate, finance, employment, and dispute resolution, among other areas of the law.

Peter Martyr, Global Chief Executive, Norton Rose Fulbright, commented:

“The continuation of our global partnership with McLaren-Honda underpins our commitment to innovation, excellence and teamwork.

“Reinforcing our working partnership with McLaren-Honda, last year we launched the dual branded Risk Ready campaign as a platform to promote our global risk advisory services. As clients continue to expand their businesses they are facing increasingly complex challenges associated with the management of risk worldwide. With 50 years of Grand Prix racing under their belts, McLaren-Honda has a clear take on risk management and through the Risk Ready campaign we have drawn on the parallels between managing risks on track and managing the risks faced by global businesses.

“McLaren-Honda has also supported the recruitment process for our Working Start employability programme, which provides employment opportunities for people with disabilities. Becoming disability-confident is a catalyst for making our firm more productive and more effective globally.
"Both Norton Rose Fulbright and McLaren-Honda value the benefits diversity can bring to our business and we encourage an even more inclusive culture globally, where we are able to unlock the full potential of our diverse workforces.”

Jonathan Neale, Chief Operating Officer, McLaren Technology Group, said:

“Norton Rose Fulbright has a world class reputation. The continued partnership enables us to complement Norton Rose Fulbright’s extensive capabilities and gives us the opportunity to deliver tangible benefits across the network of the global business. Although we come from different industries, our shared values around corporate responsibility means we have much in common and I look forward to the continued success of our partnership.”
