"Great quality work, flexible training contract, everyone is very friendly and seems to genuinely care about helping trainees learn and develop."
Second year trainee, London
"The people are approachable, friendly and incredibly smart. There is not a strict hierarchy, which is apparent in the ability of junior lawyers to easily discuss work and issues with more senior lawyers."
First year trainee, London
"Independence, flexibility, sharing an office with a trainee, relatively small office size but good deals and cases."
Second year trainee, London
"Unlike any other firm that I've heard about, the non-rotational training contract means that you have the ability to control your work at the firm so that you can tailor your experience to make it as broad or as focused as you wish. The fact that we choose who to work for means that there is also a high level of respect between all levels of the firm as everyone needs people to want to work for them."
First year trainee, London
"It's fantastic to be trusted with as much responsibility as the fee earners think you can handle. There are no glass ceilings preventing you from getting truly stuck in. It's also great to share an office with another trainee."
First year trainee, London
"Incredibly helpful and genuinely nice people who don't mind taking the time to say hi or explain something."
First year trainee, London
"The non-rotational training scheme really is a boon. I know it's probably going to be cited by every other one of my trainee colleagues, but it really does define the experience. Being able to shift focus with the demands of the firm as a business, with my own tastes and preferences, and with the demands of the day, makes me feel quite a responsibility for my own career. Perhaps I'm not giving rotational systems the credit which is due to them, but I just don't think I'd have mastery over my own ship in the same way if I followed a more linear training with specific seats."
Second year trainee, London
"The ability to get involved in a large range of departments and find out what work interests you most from early on."
First year trainee, London
