winner loser

What's it to be? YOU DECIDE.

The RollOnFriday Best Law Firms to Work At 2024 survey is open and ready for your judgements.

If you’re in private practice, give your two cents now on how satisfied you are at your firm. 

The poll builds an unparalleled picture of which firms are the happiest in the UK. Last year Burges Salmon came first, with Sidley Austin, Bird & Bird, Clarke Willmott, Osborne Clarke, Trowers & Hamlins, Ropes & Gray, Mills & Reeve, Addleshaw Goddard and RPC rounding out the top ten.

It’s open to everyone who works in private practice, from the partners to the IT teams to the associates to the PAs to the trainees to HR, and firms with faith in themselves are  encouraged to send the form round themselves. 

You rate how satisfied you are across five metrics: pay, career development, management, work/life balance, the office and amenities, and the culture

Not everyone can be the best, of course, and some firms get a drubbing. Last year BCLP came last beneath Keoghs, Squire Patton Boggs, Knights, Goodwin Proctor and Slater and Gordon.

Baker McKenzie and Slaughter and May also struggled to shine - all will be looking to improve their ranking this year.

The survey closes in the New Year when the results will be pored over by nervous senior partners countrywide. A victor shall be crowned the Best Law Firm to Work At 2024 and, as is tradition, a loser will inherit the honking mantle of Golden Turd. 

Fill out your entry below. You don't give your name, but it's only one entry per person, please. Feel free to pass it round to colleagues to help prove how happy your firm is. Or isn't, as the case may be.

@ missing firm: "Can we rate Axiom Ince?"

With some of the competition out there, there's no guarantee they'd come last if we could!

As a regular contributor to the RoF survey, who delights in seeing their most acerbic quips wind up on the website year in and year out, I feel it necessary to note that I am absolutely furious that I'll be denied the chance to wax lyrical on the many failings of surely the most guaranteed Golden Turd since this publication's inception.

I know they no longer exist, but seeing as they did for most of the year, I vote you make an exception.

yes the Wombles PR machine is making sure for a very good showing this year. It is an amazing firm. All paid for by the Post Office.

2003 ha ha very tailored if you have disclosure problems. Wombles will makes your problems disappear . For a price.

Purely based on the culture unearthed by BDB Pitmans and their unapologetic role in the Horizon scandal, the morally bankrupt Wombles deserve another Golden Turd.

This could be the last year Wombles are in this survey so let's hope the true voice comes out rather than the bots we have seen so much of lately on here.

They may be 🤡 but they have lots of marketing people willing to act like those Russian bot farm employees. Life choices I guess.

About now Wombles Partners are starting to regret slagging off postmasters

Just imagine 09 November 23 14:53

Take a moment to imagine what the postal staff must do to letters which they see are being sent to Womble Bond Dickinson.
