"Although the offices could do with a refurbishment, they are certainly fit for purpose and relatively modern. The location on the Strand is a big plus."
Second year trainee, London
"We have nice and spacious offices that are very centrally located and near good restaurants. The dress code is business casual but we have no gym or canteen on site."
First year trainee, London
"The location is fantastic and close to both Covent Garden and theatres while also being close enough to the City to meet friends for a drink. The dress code is as expected for a law firm."
First year trainee, London
"I really love the firm's office location and the layout of the office is very spacious. However, there could be more facilities within the office, such as a place to eat lunch that's not in the basement. The dress code is smart casual mostly, erring on the smart side."
First year trainee, London
"The current London office is slightly dated, but the location is fantastic. An office move is on the cards in the next few years. The dress code is pretty informal with many people coming to the office in business casual wear. I would recommend keeping a suit in the office, just in case!"
Second year trainee, London/Brussels
"The dress code is generally quite formal, although people seem to feel comfortable with slightly more casual attire as they gain more experience. There is a bit of a lack of facilities and a canteen would be a major improvement."

2017

"The location is convenient and the offices are spacious. The dress code is smart, but men do not often wear ties."
Second year trainee, London
"The office could be improved if there were better areas for socialising or break out areas for more informal work. We have plenty of meeting rooms but nowhere to sit and grab a coffee/lunch, or to hold an informal catch up meeting, other than a basement room that people rarely visit. The dress code is business casual."
Second year trainee, London
"The location is great but the facilities are lacking as there's no gym or cafeteria etc."
London
"The location is great as it's very easy to get to and close to the centre of London. Our offices are light and clean with good facilities."
First year trainee, London
"We're in an excellent location and very nice offices. It would be nice to have a canteen though. The dress code is formal but quite relaxed if we're not meeting clients."
First year trainee, London
"We have lovely modern offices next door to the Royal Courts of Justice and on the Strand. The dress code is relatively relaxed so, unless you have a client meeting, office casual is fine. There is no expectation to wear a tie or suit most of the time."

2016

"Great location, right next to the Royal Courts of Justice. The dress code is formal business attire."
Graduate, London
"Location is second to none. The space and facilities are good."
Entry level, London
"The location is great but the lack of a canteen is a minus."
Entry level, London
"We're in a great location but we don't have many useful facilities."
Entry level, London

2015

"The offices are modern and spacious, and the location beside the Royal Courts of Justice and around the corner from Covent Garden is great. The dress code is formal (smart-casual is permitted on Fridays but usually not followed)."
First year trainee, London
"The location is excellent. We are directly in the middle of the City and the West End, and right next to the High Court which is convenient. Although the IT systems could use some modernisation, the office itself is fine. The dress code is business smart - most people don't wear a tie unless they have a client meeting."
First year trainee, London
"Although there is not much on the side of facilities, the location is great. There is a formal dress code, especially as a trainee."
First year trainee, London
"Great location near Covent Garden - it is nice to be outside of the City and close to the West End. The office itself is perfectly alright, but it's probably not going to make anyone's jaw drop to the floor. The dress code is not especially strict: obviously you're expected to be well-presented for clients, but otherwise there's no expectation that men must wear ties at all times - although you can if you want."
Second year trainee, London

2014

"We have spacious, comfortable offices. The location is fantastic - right next to the Royal Courts of Justice and river and inns of court and a short walk to Covent Garden. The dress code is formal. Slightly more relaxed dress is generally fine as long as you have a jacket, etc. in the office for client facing work."
First year trainee, London
"Our offices are in an excellent location and have plenty of office space. Each trainee shares a spacious office with their supervisor. The dress code is formal but not overly so unless there is a client meeting on the agenda. The only downside is lack of facilities in the office for food, i.e. no office canteen or food service."
