"The office location is great, in the heart of the International Financial Services Centre and close to several major transport links. The facilities are good (though we could do with a few more espresso machines), with an excellent canteen, coffee dock, gym, showers and dry cleaning onsite."
Second year trainee,
"The office is comfortable but is perhaps becoming a little small as we are currently the largest law firm in Ireland. The jungle space in the lobby is very cool but perhaps the office could do with some modernisation. As with most law firms, the dress code is generally quite formal"
"The firm's office, while older in comparison to some of our competitors, is bright and spacious and a nice place to work. It is conveniently located in the IFSC and boasts its own gym, library, restaurant and dry cleaning facilities. The dress code is formal, with casual Fridays in place during the summer."
Second year trainee,
"The firm's location directly by the river is perfect. The selection of restaurants in the immediate vicinity is particularly good. Our facilities are great and a highlight is the on-site gym and shower/changing room facilities."
Third year trainee,
"The dress code is business smart. The office is good but it lags behind slightly when compared to newer office buildings around town."
First year trainee,
"The office, while dated, is a nice space. The location is accessible but not exactly in the heart of Dublin city centre. The facilities are well run and well maintained. There is a gym with showers and a canteen with cheap, healthy food. The dress code is fairly conservative, though we have casual Fridays during the summer months."
Second year trainee,
"The office is nice but it could do with an update in comparison to other top law firms. I understand that this is being considered at the moment. The location is great in the IFSC but I would prefer if parking was provided for employees other than just partners. The dress code is very reasonable and is in keeping with the professional nature of the firm."

"The office is very suitably equipped and spacious with an ideal location in the heart of the International Finances Services Centre in Dublin.
