Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Pros: excellent work for impressive lawyers; very close community within the office and genuine… Cons: no concepts of work life balance; overly wordy house style which is quite inefficient; perception amongst junior… Advice to Senior Management: working here feels like being in an abusive relationship - there's a lot of good will, but you make us hate… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
