"I share an office with a very informative and supportive supervisor. The smaller intake means you get to know the trainees in other departments."
First year trainee, London
"The quality and level of work we receive."
First year trainee, London
"There is very exciting work of high value and the people you work with are extremely successful and inspiring. We work on an international scale and it's very rare that a matter I am assisting on is purely for the London office."
First year trainee, London
"The small teams result in you getting given more responsibility and working more closely with partners."
First year trainee, London
"The small trainee intake and small teams means that you are exposed to high-quality legal work from the get-go. For example, on my second day in my second seat I was able to attend an oral hearing at the offices of a UK regulator. I was also flown to Amsterdam with two associates, for a conference that included networking with clients, in the first month of my first seat. It also means that there is less micro-managing and you are able to have first attempts at a lot of interesting work and liaise directly with counter-parties/clients (subject to final approval from your superiors)."

2018

"The friendly atmosphere means that most people are approachable and very reasonable. Due to the size and ethos of the firm, you have a real sense that you can take ownership of matters and contribute in a significant way."
First year trainee, LONDON
"The quality of work that you get to do as a trainee is great because the small intake and size of the firm means getting more responsibility than you would usually get."
First year trainee, London
"The firm is friendly and gives trainees large amounts of responsibility from the outset."
First year trainee, London
"The small firm and relatively flat hierarchy makes it easier to build relationships."
Second year trainee, London
"You get a high level of responsibility and are able to work on high-value deals. Hours are generally good compared to US competitors and we get good remuneration."
First year trainee, London
"There are high levels of responsibility within a controlled environment, especially in transactional seats. Being told that you are responsible for a particular part of a deal forces you to be proactive and take the initiative (rather than just blindly following instructions), while also affording you a level of exposure to clients and the lawyers for the other side that you would not get otherwise."
First year trainee, London
