"The people. Without being cliched, everyone is nice and friendly and could not be more willing to help trainees out, even when busy themselves. People always make time for you, which makes you feel very much part of the team. The culture is very welcoming right from the start and trainees are very much included in all aspects of firm life."

"It's very friendly with a true open-door policy. The partners are very accessible and willing to discuss things at any time (whether work related or not). There are no billable hours targets and a very good work/life balance means that everyone focuses on doing the best job for the client. Although we don't have any international offices, we have an exceptional list of international clients. Because most of the work has a techie edge to it and the clients are the best in their sector, we have some very interesting legal queries to consider."

"People in Bristows come from various backgrounds but have two things in common: they are very clever and full of personality; and have come to Bristows because they value the close working relationships it offers. This contributes to a thoroughly enjoyable, friendly and supportive working environment. The work is very interesting and varied, which forms a great learning experience. Unlike most other law firms, there is no sense of hierarchy here, which is invaluable. Our graduate recruiter is awesome."
