  • Trainees are given a variety of interesting work to complete, with early responsibility.
  • The firm is non-hierarchical and has a very friendly culture.
  • The training on offer is well structured and trainees are provided with plenty of support.

  • Some feel that remuneration is falling behind that of competitors.
  • Opportunities for pro bono work are lacking.
