Norton Rose carried off the top prize in The Lawyer HR Awards last night for its groundbreaking work on the Flex scheme, which allowed the firm to be one of the tiny number not to make redundancies last year.

The Lawyer HR Awards, now in its fourth year, is the only event of its kind dedicated to people management.
