Shearman & Sterling
Offices & Dress
Is there a dress code at your firm?
The dress code is relaxed and dress down Fridays are a plus. The office is light, well located and well maintained.Second year trainee, LondonHelpful?
No real dress code unless you're seeing clients, and dress-down Friday. All the facilities that you need are available. Office is 5 minutes' walk from Liverpool Street Station, which is excellent.First year trainee, LondonHelpful?
The offices themselves are very nice but a bit out of the way - only Pret and two other food shops within 5 minutes walk. Dress code is very informal unless meeting clients. Dress down Friday. General officewear for men is chinos/suit trouser and shirt.First year trainee, LondonHelpful?
Offices nice - many recently re-done. Location is good right near Liverpool Street. Dress code generally fairly relaxed, with the exceptions of client meetings or court hearings.First year trainee, LondonHelpful?
Dress code is much more casual - work in what you're comfortable with as long as you have a suit in the office. Casual Friday does mean jeans as opposed to no tie. The offices are very nice, recently re done with some nice but unnecessary gadgets e.g. A boiling water tap and a vending machine with fresh sandwiches and salads. Location is handy - 2 minutes from Liverpool Street Station and many bars nearby for Friday drinks.First year trainee, LondonHelpful?
Offices are very nice. I particularly like the relaxed everyday dress code (chinos and a shirt) and dress down Fridays which are even more casual. Suits are only necessary for formal events and client meetings.Second year traineeHelpful?
The offices are typically corporate, each associate has their own office, some sharing with others or a trainee, and partners have larger offices (sometimes shared with a trainee or junior associate). The environment is relaxed, there are adequate shower and cooking facilities. Dress code is relaxed, ties do not have to be worn and many associates don't wear a suit unless meeting with clients. Fridays are typically even less formal.Second year traineeHelpful?
