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”.
