CMS Cameron McKenna
When leading law firm, CMS Cameron McKenna, celebrated their Senior Partner, Fiona Woolf CBE, becoming the new Lord Mayor of the City of London, Equinox Partners were delighted to help with 'The River of Power'.
CMS Cameron McKenna’s strong Corporate Social Responsibility agenda ensures that employees voluntarily contribute to social programmes and pro bono legal work within the local community and schools. The Lord Mayor’s parade was an ideal opportunity to engage the staff of CMS, the schools they support and provide all with learning opportunities to enhance their experience of the day.
Equinox Partners vision for the parade was an all-inclusive carnival style approach that ensured that representatives from all members of staff had an opportunity to perform.
“The energy, creativity and sheer intelligence of the River of Power has been the talk of the City and it says so much about CMS as a firm and what we all care about! It was huge in raising our profile! Thank you!“
FIONA WOOLF CBE, LORD MAYOR OF THE CITY OF LONDON
