What are the best and worst things about your company?
The team - the people are fantastic to work with and always have time to help you learn. Role is valued and varied experience - able to provide support on all different types of transactions and the legal advisors and clients on deals appreciate what you do. The location - outside in a business park so limited opportunities to socialise after work.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
The company has very strong values alongside its friendly culture. The offices are open plan making it easy to ask questions and work as a team with your colleagues. Also you get a day off for your birthday plus £50 voucher!Very difficult to choose the worst thing about Shoosmiths because there is barely any!
