New Amsterdam’s Sticky Toffee Pudding “Norman” Waite-McNish (Tait’s Bassets) is McNish PLLC’s Chief Morale Officer. A basset hound, Norman embodies the very best qualities of the Firm: he’s low to the ground, he has a keen nose for the issues, and he is exceptionally stubborn in the pursuit of victory. (That said, a “victory” for Norman usually involves snatching unattended french fries.)

In his spare time—and Norman has a lot of it as a basset hound—he enjoys sleeping near Kevin’s desk, serving as Kevin’s sous-chef, and using those soulful eyes to pry belly-rubs and treats from strangers.
