Sefton Warner Special Counsel

Working at Norton Rose Fulbright, I have the complete support of my team and my firm to work hard and achieve the best professional results that I can, while still proudly being myself. One aspect of my workplace that I appreciate is that I am completely comfortable to share the usual stories with my workmates about weekends and holidays spent with my boyfriend.

Being ‘out’ at work has also helped me to meet some terrific mentors at Norton Rose Fulbright. They’ve helped me build my confidence throughout my career and to be part of a diverse working culture where sexuality doesn’t get in the way of success.
