"We get an amazing view from the ninth floor and are away from the hustle and bustle of the City."
Second year trainee, London.
"The firm is located in a really great area. It's so nice to be outside of the City and looking over the Thames. The coffee could be better though! Our dress code is formal for client meetings, but casual on Fridays."
Second year trainee, Mpscow
"The office is very well located (a five-minute walk from London Bridge) with beautiful views of central London from the terrace and north-facing offices. The office itself is a new glass building with floor-to-ceiling windows throughout (so lots of natural light). There is no gym in the building but employees are offered discounted rates at the local Third Space just in front of the office. Men are not required to wear ties unless meeting clients and many teams dress casually on Fridays."
First year trainee, London
"It would be nice to have a gym and better food in the canteen."
Second year trainee, London
"We're in a great location that lends itself to great drinking spots and festivities in both summer and winter."
First year trainee, London
"The best offices of any law firm in my opinion."
Second year trainee, London
"The office is in a great location, is new, has an excellent terrace suite and is very spacious and light. The canteen is not particularly good, however, and there is no on site gym."
Second year trainee, London
"It's formal during the week but most teams have dress down Fridays and there are whole-firm dress down Fridays every month. The office is fantastic, with beautiful views across the Thames from the ninth floor. The only thing lacking is a gym."
Second year trainee, Munich currently (on secondment from the London office)

2016

"Dress code is relaxed. Location is excellent and the facilities are good, although the canteen is overpriced."
First year trainee, London
"Our office is great. It's bright and airy and it's really nice to be out of the City south of the river."
Second year trainee, London
"Great location next to City Hall and Tower Bridge. The views from the office are fantastic. The dress code is the standard business attire. However, ties are not generally worn unless you are meeting with clients."
Second year trainee, London
"Simultaneously sleek and designed for comfort. Top marks."
"The office is in a great location and the view is incredible. The office facilities are modern and impressive with a new canteen and meeting rooms."
First year trainee, London
"Beautiful location, beautiful view, fantastic office space."
First year trainee, London
"Fantastic. Only lacking a gym and better food at the canteen (which strangely used to be very good prior to the recent redevelopment)."
First year trainee, London
"Best offices in the City and the best location."
First year trainee, London

2015

"I think that the offices are amazing. The view from the ninth floor terrace is pretty incredible."
Second year trainee, London
"In my opinion these are the best offices out of all the firms I have seen, hands down: they're magical!"
First year trainee, London
"Personally I am yet to see better law firm offices in London, and the offices speak for themselves. The dress code at the firm can vary, generally it is smart suits, but some teams do dress down Friday, and there are often dress down days."
Second year trainee, Sydney
"The London office location is ideal: it is right on the river, near London Bridge/Borough market."
First year trainee, London
"The dress code at the firm is smart casual with frequent dress down days. We have prime real estate down in the airy and spacious More London complex, with lots of natural light."
Second year trainee, London
"The dress code is as I'd expect at a City law firm; office is fantastic with a view of Tower Bridge/the Thames and a gym next door. There is good food in the canteen too!"
Second year trainee, London
"I don't think I can ask much more from the office: there are great views, spacious offices and plenty of light."
First year trainee, London
"Although I would prefer to be in the City as to be closer to shops, restaurants, bars and the courts (for disputes seat), the offices are in a modern building that is spacious and light."
Second year trainee, London
"The firm's London office has spectacular views of Tower Bridge, and avoids the hustle-and-bustle brought about by the location of other high profile firms. There is a good choice of lunch spots if you fancy a walk, and good bars for drinks after work."
First year trainee, London

2014

"The offices are excellent - very impressive and well equipped."
First year trainee, London
"Offices are modern, spacious and have great facilities. Access to local gyms which are very close (and heavily subsidised). Dress down Fridays every week."
First year trainee, London
"The offices are beautiful. The location is truly the best in the city. Location was one of the reasons I chose to train at Norton Rose Fulbright because it is away from the claustrophobic City. The surrounding area of Borough and Bermondsey Street has a lot going for it. I actually get sad when I go home for the night because of the wonderful views we get from the office of the Thames."
First year trainee, London
"The office is only a few years old, and is very light and bright as it is made of glass. The location, next to Tower Bridge, is great and feels calmer than the City. The dress code is formal and people are generally very smart, but there are also lots of charity dress down days."
Second year trainee, London
"The location is good for the open space it offers but away from some of the 'buzz' and amenities of the City."
Second year trainee, London
"The office is lovely, lots of glass so there is loads of natural light. The ninth floor terrace at the front of the building is a particular highlight. The dress code is office dress/office casual but dress down Fridays regularly take place."
First year trainee, London

2013

"London office is incredible! The dress code is business casual, dress down day in some teams on Fridays."
Second year trainee, London
"The office, location and facilities are all first rate. The dress code is business casual meaning that men are not expected to wear ties unless they have client meetings."
Second year trainee, London
"Tower Bridge, Tower of London, HMS Belfast, Mayor's office and the City, few have better views. Excellent modern facilities, everything works and a patch of grass and picnic benches, south of the river is the way forward."
Second year trainee, London
"Both London and Paris offices are very modern. The London office is very well located."
First year trainee, Paris
"Perhaps the most impressive office of all the City firms. Stunning views of Tower Bridge and regular sightings of Boris Johnson."
First year trainee, London
