Why your firm?

2016

"Good clients and types of work undertaken. Culture seemed more open/friendly than other firms doing similar work from reading materials on the firm. This was confirmed when I met people at the assessment centre. Smaller intake than most large international city firms, meaning early responsibility."
First year trainee, London
"The strength of its finance practice, its global footprint and the atmosphere when I visited."
First year trainee, London
"Global presence, high-end work, diversity of strong practice areas. The small trainee intake, the responsibility, the people (met during the assessment centre), the involvement I had before joining the firm, the secondment availability."
First year trainee, London
"Large, international firm doing quality work across a broad range of practice areas. But with a small, focused trainee intake."
First year trainee, London
"The international nature of the firm and the amount of cross-jurisdictional work I could get involved in. Also the guarantee that I would have a seat on secondment."
Second year trainee, London
"I attended an open day that left me with a great impression of the firm."
Second year trainee, London
"The top city firms all have very similar things to offer, so I based my decision on the people I met at events such as open days and ultimately the vacation scheme. I got on well with every single person I met at Mayer Brown as well as my fellow vacation scheme students. This made it clear to me that this was the firm for me, having had a very different and negative experience with another firm."

2015

"I completed an enjoyable vacation scheme here which gave a real insight into working as a lawyer."
Second year trainee, London
"I had a couple of very close friends training at the firm and they encouraged me to apply as well. I always felt very drawn to Mayer Brown and its position in the market."
First year trainee, London
"The smaller size in respect of the London office and the number of trainees combined with the global nature of Mayer Brown International. The availability of client and international secondments."
First year trainee, London
"I applied here because the atmosphere on an open day that I attended was very welcoming and the prospect of so much cross-border work was appealing."
First year trainee, London
"The international nature of the firm appealed to me. I attended an open day and a vacation scheme, and the culture seemed to be a good match for me."
First year trainee, London
"I liked the fact that it was big internationally but medium-sized in London with a trainee intake that would mean I could get to know everyone, not just those in my particular intake."
First year trainee, London
"The fact we have offices in Asia was a big selling point for me and also our guaranteed secondment."

2014

"The reputation of the firm, its international dimension, the quality of the work and the firm culture."

2013

"The friendly atmosphere."
First year trainee, London
"I met the graduate recruitment team at a university talk and I was left with a lasting impression. I believed that I would have great exposure and experience working at the firm and I would enjoy working with the people they look to hire."
First year trainee, London
"Medium-size intake (more responsibility but still a good size group); international, high-level work and good international and client-facing opportunities. Also good pragmatic and approachable vibe from people I met."
Second year trainee, London
"Global reach with expanding international platform and bigger London presence than most 'American' firms. Relatively smaller intake with big-ticket work so better chance for responsibility while still big enough to be sociable. Liked the proactive vibe and generally the people I met seemed contented. Good reputation for training."
Second year trainee, London
"Range of seats choices, including wide range of client secondments as a client."
Second year trainee, London
