2016

"Friendly, open-door culture; always numerous after-work drinks being organised and sports activities within the office. Generally people are sympathetic towards the long hours; very much a culture of team work."
First year trainee, London
"Excellent culture. Friendly, non-hierarchical, open door policy. Due to the smaller intakes, it is very apparent to me that the firm can choose candidates that fit in with the laid-back, friendly culture. The firm is not forced (by need of numbers) to derogate from that."
Second year trainee, London / Hong Kong
"I like the fact we are a smaller intake of approximately 24 trainees. This means you build a good relationship with each individual."
First year trainee, London
"People work incredibly hard, whether it's day or night, weekday or weekend, but you still hear plenty of laughter in the corridors. A sense of humour makes all of the difference."
First year trainee, London
"People are friendly and approachable and there is an open-door policy. The dress code is business casual and we have casual Fridays. People take their work very seriously, but not so much that they develop an ego."
First year trainee, London
"Generally social and friendly. After-work events take place on a regular basis. Mostly non-hierarchical."
First year trainee, London

2015

"The culture does vary by department, but overall there is a very open and relaxed culture."
First year trainee, London
"The firm has good socialising in a relaxed culture, and there is easy interaction between partners and trainees."
Second year trainee, London
"Everyone at Latham & Watkins is so friendly! The trainees in particular get along very well - there is a trainee table at our on-site restaurant at lunch every day, or if the weather is nice we will go out for lunch in groups. We all help each other and the atmosphere is very collegiate and non-competitive."
First year trainee, London
"It does vary across teams, but overall the hierarchy is flat, and people will invite trainees out for drinks and to socialise."
First year trainee, London
"Everyone I've worked for is approachable, friendly and likes to have a laugh, so there is a great culture here."
Second year trainee, London
