Offices & Dress
Is there a dress code at your firm?
The offices are nice, in a very good location in Farringdon - although it is a slight frustration that the Corporate department is across the road. The dress code is just normal office wear.First year trainee, LondonHelpful?
Great location between the Old Bailey and the restaurants and bars of Clerkenwell/Farringdon. The actual décor of the offices is a little plain. Dress code is varied depending on department (e.g. Corporate is less formal, whereas you more often wear a tie in employment).First year trainee, LondonHelpful?
Location is great and I think the completion suite is impressive when it comes to signing. Dress down policy on a Friday.First year trainee, LondonHelpful?
Easy going dress code (i.e. no ties unless in meetings). Offices are fine but lack decent storage.1 yr PQE, LondonHelpful?
Fancy offices are not what we are about, so if that is the kind of thing that excites you we might not be for you.Newly qualified solicitor, LondonHelpful?
Location is great. Can sometimes feel a bit small, and does need a refurbishment. We have dress down Fridays, and on normal days the code is fairly relaxed- with hardly anyone wearing ties unless meeting clients.First year trainee, LondonHelpful?
Office could do with a refresh in the non-client facing areas. Dress code is business with dress down Friday.1 yr PQEHelpful?
There are up to 3/4 people in each room which means you can learn from those more experienced within your room.First year traineeHelpful?
Office space is fine but nothing special. The parts which clients can see are very nice. Dress code is smart Monday to Thursday and smart casual on a Friday.Second year traineeHelpful?
Not as flashy as some other law firms I have visited.First year traineeHelpful?
Dress code - smart, 'dress down' Friday still smart! Location is good, offices are low key but fine.First year traineeHelpful?
Understated offices (which I like), good location by Smithfield (slightly less City than Liverpool street or Canary Wharf), smart dress code.1 yr PQEHelpful?
Dress code is fairly relaxed which is good - business attire except on Fridays.Second year traineeHelpful?
The offices aren't very smart (apart from the client areas), but they are fine and quite spacious - and I have everything I need. And the firm's location is good.1 yr PQEHelpful?
Offices aren't plush but they are very spacious and comfortable. Dress code is standard modern City - suit but no tie unless meeting clients.First year traineeHelpful?
Quite an old building, not too bad. Sensible buildings, not flashy. Dress code is standard, suit, no tie in most places aside from meetings, etc.First year traineeHelpful?
Location is excellent but the offices could do with a refreshing refurbishment.First year traineeHelpful?
Very pleasant offices, but not luxurious. Dress code is relaxed - very few people wear ties at their desks. People are nonetheless smart.Second year traineeHelpful?
Offices are fine. Location is good (handy for bars and restaurants). Dress code is smart. No tie and jacket at desk. Dress down on Friday.Second year traineeHelpful?
Dress code is fairly standard. Can be more relaxed depending on which seat you are in (Litigation for example, is quite formal, whereas Corporate is notoriously laid back and no one bothers to wear a tie unless going to meet a client).First year traineeHelpful?
Farringdon is a great part of the City to work in – it’s on the edge and has unique cafes and bars all offering different foods, drinks and good times. Its location right by the City Thameslink Station and St Pauls and Farringdon tubes is easy to get to and from. The dress code is formal Monday to Thursday with a dress down policy on Friday.Second year traineeHelpful?
Good office space and room system (partner, associate, and trainee together) works very well. The Corporate department is in a separate building next to the main building, though there are plans afoot to join the two buildings. The facilities are fine though nothing special. The dress code is generally very relaxed and dress down Friday is very popular.Second year traineeHelpful?
Good size offices. Trainees tend to sit with an associate and a partner, and we all have the same size desks, etc. – You always feel like an equal. The location near Smithfield Market is a nice, not too busy part of the city. There is a small gym (which is good for personal training sessions) and the canteen is reasonable (we get £5 subsidy per week).First year traineeHelpful?
Office space is fairly pleasant. I love the location near St Paul's, Smithfield, Farringdon – stacks of quirky bars, restaurants and shops and an easy commute from everywhere (Farringdon, St Paul's, Chancery Lane, City Thameslink, Cannon Street, Blackfriars, etc. Are all an easy walk). Dress code is fairly standard – suits Monday to Thursday (no need to wear a tie unless with clients). Dress down Friday (smart casual, no jeans).Junior solicitorHelpful?
Dress code is formal Monday to Thursday (jackets but no ties), smart casual on Fridays. Our offices are well located and, while they may not be as flash as those of some of our competitors, they provide a better working environment (our individual offices are pretty large).Junior solicitorHelpful?
Offices are functional and smart rather than deluxe. Dress code is relatively formal – ties for internal or external meetings.Junior solicitorHelpful?
Offices have recently undergone a face lift, perfectly acceptable working environment. There's a no ties culture on the office floors, and standard City dress down Friday policy (i.e. Chinos not jeans).Junior solicitorHelpful?
Our offices are quite old fashioned. The dress code is fairly standard with ‘dress down’ Fridays.Junior solicitorHelpful?
