    I worked at Simmons & Simmons

    Pros

    Very friendly staff. Their internship was extremely well-organised and we were given decent work by supervisors. They also organised a lot of interim seminars, departmental tours and workshops to introduce us to the firm and to break up our individual work schedules. Work hours of the senior staff their seemed decent as well.

    Cons

    Their strategy appears to be a heavy shift in focus on corporate, M&A work - at least, that was what Mark Dawkins stated when he addressed the interns. Whether this might lead to other departments being moved to the sidelines may be a problem for some not so intent on becoming corporate lawyers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A little more honesty with potential employees would be nice, even if internal propaganda is inevitable.
