"A friendly environment with approachable partners in a great location."
Pros: 
  • Trainees are exposed to a variety of high-level work and are given good responsibility from the outset.
  • There’s a very social culture with many events organised outside of work.
  • Trainees are not expected to work late and are encouraged to leave the office if they’re working beyond contracted hours.
  • Training programmes are well thought out and enhance development.
Cons: 
  • Some felt that the qualification salary could be slightly more attractive.
  • There aren’t many communal areas for socialising.
  • Some trainees felt that they didn’t have as much input in their seat choices as they’d like.
  • The firm doesn’t perform as much pro bono work as some trainees would like.
