For the first time, the global legal practice of Norton Rose Fulbright will be participating in the BP MS 150, an annual bike ride to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. The Norton Rose Fulbright team consists of 150 cyclists from more than 20 offices across the globe.

Kelly Dooley, Development Director of the National MS Society, said:

"We are delighted to have Norton Rose Fulbright participate in this year's BP MS 150. Their enthusiasm is appreciated, as their riders are coming from all around the world and will likely comprise the biggest first-year team in the ride's history."

An estimated 13,000 cyclists will take part in the two-day, 180-mile ride from Houston to Austin, Texas on April 12-13, 2014. This marks the 30th year for the BP MS 150, the largest bike ride for multiple sclerosis in North America.

Adrian Ahern, Global Chairman, Norton Rose Fulbright, said:

"By making the BP MS 150 our primary global charitable initiative for 2014, we are aiming to help increase awareness of the illness and raise money for an excellent cause. I'm proud of our international team of cyclists all of whom are eager to take on this spirited challenge in the Texas heat."

Norton Rose Fulbright, which has more than 50 offices worldwide, has formed a BP MS 150 team of lawyers and professionals from the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia, Australia, South Africa and the Middle East.

Linda Addison, US Managing Partner, Norton Rose Fulbright, said:
