"Pay is excellent, particularly when qualified."
First year trainee, London
"Unfortunately no trainee bonus. But new qualifier salaries in London are top of the market and have just been increased to match the Cravath New York pay scale (US$180,000 starting salary)."
Second year trainee, London / Hong Kong
"Great pay. Total transparency."
First year trainee, London
"You're paid for the top of the market and you earn it."
Second year trainee, London
"Pay is top market."
First year trainee, London
"Trainees don't get bonuses but as far as I know the associates are happy with their bonuses."
First year trainee, London


"I think that the trainee salary is at the top end of the City. Trainees do not get bonuses currently as the firm believes it isn't conducive to learning and development, as the bonus structure is based largely on hours billed. The NQ salary is excellent."
Second year trainee, London
"I feel that I have a very competitive salary, and at the firm we are at the very top for qualification salaries."
First year trainee, London
