Why your firm?

2016

"Reputation. Quality and calibre of people I knew who had gone to work there. Quality of the clients."
Second year trainee, London
"I thought the multi-specialist approach would be intellectually challenging and keep my day-to-day work interesting. I liked the culture of the firm, which prioritises excellence and hard work and also rewards efficiency rather than face-time, hourly targets culture that I feel promotes inefficiency."
First year trainee, London
"They take their work seriously and expect the highest performance standards, but they're also committed to developing their trainees."
First year trainee, London
"Very strong in the corporate law sphere. Multi-specialist approach really sets it apart from the other magic circle firms."
Second year trainee, London
"The lack of hourly targets and the fact that this promotes cooperation and efficiency. The multi-specialist approach because you are always learning and constantly challenged."
First year trainee, London
"The firm's reputation prompted me to go to the presentation that was given at my university. As I enjoyed the talk and chatting to the people I met there, I applied to the Christmas workshop. After learning more about the firm and meeting more people, all of whom seemed like the kind of people I would enjoy working with, I decided to apply for a training contract."

2013

"The firm stood out in the way it recruited trainees and the way it operates. For example, the firm has only a small (if that) marketing budget - clients come to the firm because they know they will receive an excellent product, rather than because they saw the firm advertised in the back of a taxi. Branding is important."
Second year trainee, London
"The reputation of the firm."
Newly qualified solicitor, London
"Quality of work stemming from the impressive client-base."
First year trainee, London
"I liked the culture here more than elsewhere - it was the clear differentiating factor from the other Magic Circle firms."

"Good reputation and I'd met some of the partners and trainees at a university event and thought they were nice. Reputation for good training without making you work till midnight every day. No billable hour targets."
First year trainee, London
"The people. It was the most impressive in terms of how efficiently the interviews were conducted and everyone I met was polite and professional."
Second year trainee, London
"They had the best reputation for training out of the offers I received."
First year trainee, London
"Magic Circle reputation and everything you get with that."
Newly qualified solicitor, London
"I wanted to start at the top and stay there. It was the best corporate law firm in the City. The quality of work speaks for itself - they didn't convince me to choose them over other firms, which I thought was very classy. The people are genuinely very kind."
