Court­ing the dance floor

Global IP law firm Spoor & Fisher threw a heck of a party on Thurs­day night aimed at cel­e­brat­ing its new South African head of­fice at Byls Bridge Boule­vard in Cen­tu­rion. The law firm’s 53 lawyers and more than 250 staff mem­bers across its of­fices in South Africa traded their suits for a se­ri­ous get-down on the dance floor try­ing to give Loy­iso from the Bala Broth­ers a run for his money. Bala and the Swing City lived up to their name, keep­ing the guests on their feet as they sang any­thing from Miriam Makeba’s Pata Pata song, writ­ten by fel­low artist Dorothy Ma­suka, to leg­endary Louis Arm­strong songs that brought many fond mem­o­ries for par­tic­i­pants. City Press also saw SABC sports pre­sen­ter Kwena Moa­belo, among oth­ers, on the dance floor. The mu­sic was only in­ter­rupted by sump­tu­ous food and drinks that kept flow­ing to mid­night. A four-storey mu­ral in­stalled in the re­cep­tion area was a talk­ing point and is the cen­tre­piece of the new head of­fice. The mu­ral is in the shape of a hu­man fig­ure com­posed of but­ter­flies sym­bol­is­ing the state of flux defin­ing all as­pects of life. Keith Brown, chair­per­son of the part­ner­ship Spoor & Fisher, says: “The new head of­fice re­flects Spoor & Fisher’s ex­tra­or­di­nary growth over the past few years and is aligned to our global am­bi­tions.” He said the move will en­able the team to work to­gether in an open-plan set­ting that pro­motes in­no­va­tive think­ing and “con­tin­ues to pro­vide a truly in­ter­na­tional ser­vice”.
