v stressed

The instagramisation of law firms is a disaster. You will not care about the view when you’re stressed beyond belief working at 1am.

To be fair I do enjoy a good office regardless of my working hours. Whether thats gym, canteen or other amenities, it does make the day easier and less stressful knowing I can eat well, exercise or do my admin on site. Yes thats a trap to get me to stay longer but life would be a lot harder without it.

Dentons

If this is the top drawer ‘office-porn’, I will leave you to imagine what category Dentons’ London office would be listed under…

Uncharitable fellow

Mouldy 1980s lads mag tucked under a log in the woods?

lol

whoop de doo

Cringe

If whoever recorded these was older than nine I despair.

These are useless – all they show are the client areas and main reception nothing like the actual work areas.

Can we stop glamorising working in a law firm?

It is such a boring and soul destroying job. Wow your office has a coffee machine? groundbreaking.

Don’t be fooled, law students. A swanky office is not a perk. Free coffee though? That certainly is, but it’s not a big enough perk to offset the stress of working at firms like this.

“the stress of working at firms like this”

With the exception of Freshfields, these are some of the least stressful firms in the City. Would hope most people aren’t so sensitive to stress that they can’t cut it at Clydes or Bird & BIrd!

In before K&E associate logs on to say that the best thing about working at Clyde & Co is the view of K&E’s office. 😅
