Looking forward to your warm bed tonight? No more so than the 1,400 people from across the tech industry who, a week tonight on 7 October, will give up their beds across the UK to raise money for Action for Children.
Law firms including Norton Rose Fulbright will be out in force at Byte Night. The international firm is hosting the London outdoor sleep in St John’s Churchyard (pictured) near its London office, led by global head of technology and innovation Mike Rebeiro.
Yours truly, intrepid reporter and Legal IT Insider editor Caroline Hill will now be joining them – keep an eye on @chillmedia on Friday night. Other firms taking part include Bond Dickinson, Boyes Turner, Eversheds, Farrer & Co, Keystone Law, Mills & Reeve and Taylor Vinters.
