(based on 4 ratings in 2016)

2016

"There's quite a flat hierarchy with very friendly trainees and lots of socialising. However, it can also get individualistic and competitive sometimes."
First year trainee, London
"The culture is very meritocratic: hard work and motivation are thoroughly rewarded."
Second year trainee, London

2015

"The firm has a flat structure, and partners are generally very approachable. The London office has several office-wide social activities throughout the year, such as the attorney retreat to Hampshire, the Christmas and summer parties, Halloween drinks in the office, etc."
Second year trainee, Hong Kong (seconded from London)
"The firm culture is the best thing about it - I don't get an oppressive sense of hierarchy and there is a good gender balance in the office. You get the sense that people are valued for what they do rather than how long they have been at the firm or who they are per se."
First year trainee, London
"The firm has a non-hierarchical structure and a strong team-work ethic. In my experience, colleagues don't seem to socialise very regularly outside of work but do have strong social bonds within the work environment."
First year trainee, London
"The firm is a very friendly place and everyone wants to get on. The hierarchy is as flat as it can be (all trainees tend to sit with partners) and everyone mixes at the social events (and there are plenty of these)."
Second year trainee, London
"In office the culture is friendly and colleagues are very approachable, though when deals are at their peak it can be difficult to stop and ask questions. In terms of structure there is no hierarchy, due to several lateral hires. Everyone is approachable and ready to help."
First year trainee, London
