Rollonfriday is a legal web site that shies away from press releases, and tends not to follow the PR crap view the legal profession has about itself. It’s a good source of real news and opinion about what is going on in the legal business arena.
It runs an annual Firm of the Year competition, allowing employees to rate their own firm in key areas like pay, work-life balance, toilets(!), social life, and others.
The 2013 winners were Ince and Co.
The 2013 bottom firm were Irwin Mitchell.
I worked for a year at Irwin Mitchell. Ask me if I’m surprised.
