"I liked the fact that the firm had practices in so many areas as this offered a broad choice of seats for the training contract, especially as the firm offers six seats instead of the traditional four. I also got the feeling from researching the firm that it had a positive culture that promoted a healthy work/life balance, which appealed to me. Finally, when I came on the vac scheme, it was evident how happy and friendly everyone I came across seemed and this created a lovely atmosphere in the office that I was drawn to."First year trainee, Plymouth
