  • Trainees are given a variety of interesting work to complete, with early responsibility.
  • The firm is non-hierarchical and has a very friendly culture.
  • The training on offer is well structured and trainees are provided with plenty of support.
  • The firm has flexible hours and employees are able to work from home.


  • Only a limited number of trainees can do the most popular seats, meaning that these can be very competitive.
  • The seat selection process could be more transparent and flexible.
  • Some feel that remuneration is falling behind that of competitors.
  • Opportunities for pro bono work are lacking.
