2016

"Pay is good, although on the lower end of American firms."
First year trainee, London
"A high pay compared to others."
First year trainee, London
"Pay is very competitive, and bonuses have become a lot more transparent."
London

2015

"Base pay is above average for London law firms, and roughly average for an American firm. Bonus scheme seems opaque at the moment, but trainees all receive the same bonus anyway."
First year trainee, London
"Trainee pay is similar to other firms. NQ pay is extremely good compared to English firms, average compared to other US firms. Trainee bonuses are a flat rate of £500 gross."
First year trainee, London
"Pay is very competitive, and NQ salary is very high in comparison to Magic Circle. You also get a bonus at Christmas time, which is always welcome."
First year trainee, London
"Salary is pretty standard for London for trainees but it seems very good beyond qualification."
Second year trainee, London

2014

"The pay is very competitive so I have no complaints. Trainees get a small bonus each year (the same amount is given to everyone) which is a nice incentive."
Second year trainee, London
"US firms are traditionally associated with higher salaries - but trainee figures are similar to those offered at other City firms. Salaries on qualification exceed those offered at the same firms. The firm does give nominal bonuses to trainees, which is appreciated."
First year trainee, London
"Extremely good and the pay rise from first to second year was a nice surprise. Good, structured trainee-bonuses."
Second year trainee, London

2013

"Pay is good, comparatively."
First year trainee, London
"Pay is excellent. Bonuses for trainees are the same for everyone (higher bonus in second year) because we have no control over our work so it's not fair to give one of us a higher bonus just because they were delegated more work."
First year trainee, London
"Very decent salary."
First year trainee, London
"Paid well as trainees and exceptionally as associates. Everyone in the office gets a bonus - trainees get a flat rate bonus and billables are not taken into account."
First year trainee, London
"A little higher than the standard City trainee pay. Associate pay is on the lower end for a US firm, but work and culture balance it out I think."
Second year trainee, London
