2015

"My favourite 'perk' is that we're based in Exchange Square - which is probably the best place for an office in the City, I think. It's great fun in the summer, especially when there's a big screen up for sport. There's plenty of scope for international secondments both as a trainee and once qualified. Other perks are all there, including a gym/discounts on shopping/a decent canteen. We also have by far the best stocked tent at the Law Society Rugby Sevens tournament in Richmond each September!"

"Perks include taxis, free dinners, graduate recruitment events and a trainee ball. Travel expenses covering travel and accommodation costs on secondment are covered, and there are a wide range of exciting secondments."

"There are many perks, ranging from meals out to benefits and incentives packages."

Should you be put on secondment the firm will put you up in some fairly lush accommodation."
