“Each day at 5:00pm, the head of the London office gathers the heads of each department to assemble in the lobby, where they form a guard of honour to say farewell to their loyal lawyers. ‘We love you!’ ‘Great job today!’ ‘WE couldn’t do it without you!’ they cry as they hug each grateful staff member of staff, tears falling onto their cheeks. The staff exit to calls of ‘Don’t you come back until 9:30 tomorrow, at the earliest’ as they hand in their work phones, knowing that their job is done for the day.” [Legal Cheek Comments]
