As of tomorrow, Canada's Ogilvy Renault will officially merge with London-based Norton Rose.
But, at its Montreal headquarters, the firm jumped the gun and had a new sign installed several days ago, reports the Globe and Mail.
Other offices plan a similar makeover tonight, and partners in Toronto plan to celebrate by ceremonially opening the local stock exchange.
