Blake Morgan hailed legal superheroes by Lex100

Posted on 8th October 2018
National leading law firm Blake Morgan have been compared to a Marvel Avenger Superhero by a prominent guide for graduates who want to get into the profession.

The firm came highly recommended by the Lex100, which compiles an annual student guide to the UK’s premier law firms.  They were also Lex100 Winners in two categories – Confidence in being kept on and Work/life balance.

The guide gathered more than 3,000 anonymous responses from trainees at 173 law firms – and Blake Morgan.

In reference to the firm’s regional presence with a large spread of offices offering recruits the opportunity to work on major corporate deals whilst maintaining a good work/life balance, The Lex100 noted: “If the firm were a fictional character it would be Ant Man – can pack a punch if needed.”

It says trainees lauded the culture of the firm and their commitment to wellbeing initiatives such as lunchtime yoga classes and supportive management.

Training at the firm was also highly rated, particularly the secondments on offer alongside opportunities to take part in a wide range of CSR activities.

Liz Bryne, Head of L&D at Blake Morgan, said: “The Lex100 is one of the most respected guides for graduates so we are pleased to see that we have again been recognised as an employer of choice.

“Our people are our greatest asset and we want them to be the best that they can possibly be. So we work hard to create a working environment where than can happen and to provide the support and development opportunities that trainees need to reach their full career potential.”

Trainees who responded to the Lex100 were ask to assign scores to their firms according to 12 different criteria of trainee life – job satisfaction, living up to expectations, work quality, client contact, work/life balance, social life, vacation scheme, confidence of being kept on, remuneration, inclusivity, international secondments and approachability.
