That doesn't mean, of course, that we don't work hard. We do. But we are not workaholics: we genuinely believe that a lawyer with a life outside work is a better lawyer. We treat each other with respect but no great formality. We have, as they say, a laugh.

We probably should say something here about competitive salaries, excellent benefits, subsidised gym membership, opportunities to play softball with your colleagues,etc. But life is short, so let's leave all that until we meet.
