A bar in a law office? Well, yes, that’s the plan. Having taken the bar, the attorneys of MFBR are now opening one!
There won’t, of course, be a sign outside. And it won’t be for profit. In fact, the drinks and canapés will all be free. But if you are now frantically writing down our address in order to hurry round and be a part of this grand giveaway, we should warn you there’s a catch: it’s all by invitation only.
The brainchild of MFBR managing partner, Rob Mallari, Lex Speakeasy (‘lex’ is the Latin word for ‘law’) will be an informal gathering of business leaders, entrepreneurs, investors and friends of the firm, who will get together once a month to unwind, chat, exchange ideas… It will be an opportunity to meet other members of the business community in a relaxed atmosphere, where Rob and his colleagues will be on hand to make introductions, and possibly engage in a little entrepreneur-type matchmaking.
‘The idea came to me during our law firm’s 10th anniversary celebrations,’ explains Attorney Rob. ‘After dinner our guests gathered together in the ‘bar’ we’d mocked up in our office suite, and it fascinated me how people from different areas of the business community quickly found common ground, and how ideas were hatched and business relationships formed. I believe one or two very interesting new start ups might appear as a result of that celebration! The next day I was speaking with a colleague and we both thought it would be good to repeat the experience – hence the speakeasy. It will all be very low-key and friendly. That’s the way we like to do things. Though that’s not to say there won’t be one or two surprises!’
With speakeasies becoming ever more popular these days, MFBR are certainly in tune with the times. And they might just have come up with the strangest one yet!
