Because stairs are soooo 2023
Whilst many firms kit out their offices with spacious canteens, swanky seating, and modern art, one Irish outfit has taken a different approach to brightening up its workspace.
Gallagher McCartney Barry Solicitors has a large yellow slide in their Donegal office, taking lawyers and clients straight from the first floor into the reception.
It’s not just a gimmick either, footage on social media showing lawyers making the most of the office’s one-way highway.
This isn’t the first time law firms have looked to boost their appeal with unconventional office upgrades.
Back in 2018 Hogan Lovells unveiled a new putting green suitably positioned inside its Birmingham office. More recently, US outfits Skadden, Cooley, and Covington & Burling have all relocated to 22 Bishopsgate, a 62-storey skyscraper boasting a ‘sky-wall’ climbing window.
And believe it or not, this isn’t even the first slide to appear in a law firm office. Up until 2015, the Sheffield office of intellectual property outfit Withers & Rogers was housed in an office featuring an 85ft Helter Skelter.
