"There is a huge emphasis on teamwork and an 'open-door' policy. Most Partners listen to you when you're on their team, and there are great social events for the firm every month. The firm works hard but also enjoys free time."

"Within the office, there are a number of groups to get involved in. For example, I am a member of the firm choir and sing with them in competitions. Outside the office and after-hours, there are often numerous activities organised by personnel in the building to reward us for our hard work and to enable us to have fun!"
Second year trainee, Dublin
"The structure of teams is good. Teamwork is a major aspect of the daily routine. The firm has a great social aspect and has plenty of events that encourage socialising across the various levels. Most teams would also have a good social aspect."
