Why your firm?

2016

"Good quality work. The intake was not huge so no risk of getting lost in it. I met trainees at a law fair who seemed like they genuinely enjoyed their job and gave honest responses rather than a corporate line they clearly didn't believe in."

"The small intake and a highly enjoyable vacation scheme. People at the firm were very welcoming and great to work with."
First year trainee, London
"The small trainee intake, early responsibility and the culture."

Second year trainee, London
"Meeting the people who worked there at an event. If you want to work in corporate law, the hours are always going to be bad at times. It makes sense to choose a firm where you will at least be surrounded by people you like when you are there at 4.00 am!"
