New Norton Rose Group Chairman Based in Canada

Monday 30 April 2012

As of tomorrow Canadian partner Norman Steinberg will become Group Chairman of the Norton Rose Group - the first time the Group will have a Chairman from outside the UK.  

Norman is currently Chairman of Norton Rose Canada LLP and a member of Norton Rose Group’s Supervisory Board, as well as an ex officio member of Norton Rose Canada LLP’s Management Committee. His new role is part of the global management of the Group.

Norman takes over from Stephen Parish, who steps down as Group Chairman today, but continues as Chairman of Norton Rose LLP.

Peter Martyr, Group Chief Executive, Norton Rose Group said:

“Having a Canadian Group Chairman is a reflection of the globalisation of the practice. With his significant management and client relationship experience, Norman is a natural choice for this position. He will continue to build our international practice as his predecessor, Stephen Parish did. I would like to thank Stephen, who has significantly contributed to our success in becoming a truly international legal practice."

Norman Steinberg comments:

“This is a tremendous honour. Becoming the first Canadian Group Chairman is a real demonstration of how quickly Canada has been integrated into Norton Rose Group. My primary focus will be on the continued business development of our clients internationally and I look forward to working with the global partnership in my new capacity.”

With more than 2900 lawyers, Norton Rose Group is one of the five largest international legal practices, with offices throughout Europe, Asia, Australia, Canada, Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and Central Asia. On January 1, 2012, leading Canadian law firm Macleod Dixon joined the Group, strengthening the Group’s resources in Canada and Russia and expanding into Venezuela, Colombia and Kazakhstan.
