The results of the RollOnFriday firm of the year survey show a few changes from last year. Notably last years 'Golden Turd' (bottom placed firm), Trowers have shot up the table.
The survey rates aspects such as pay, work/life balance, management, culture and the important things such as the loos and quality of meeting room biscuits. As it is done by staff members it can give some indication of how well valued they feel within the firm.
Congratulations are therefore in order for Burges Salmon and Shearman & Sterling for joint topping the table.

Last week Burges Salmon and Shearman & Sterling were crowned the joint winners of Firm of the Year 2016, while the Golden Turd was shoved through the letterbox of Hill Dickinson. But with 62 firms qualifying for the survey, it reveals far more than just a winner and a loser. RollOnFriday asked law firm staff to rate pay, career development, work/life balance, management and culture at their firm. They were also asked to score the social life, loos and meeting room biscuits. Over 4,700 lawyers, trainees and support staff answered the call and sat in judgment. So, where did your firm come?
