You'll be in for a surprise - they do market themselves well but the truth is not so pretty.

In terms of the "pretty partners". The female MD is in a relationship with another one of the MD. Alot of the lawyers you see are consultants (i.e. never in office or part-timers) and chose to go to WMH because they are effectively retired from law, for e.g. one of the pretty partner(s) you are looking at runs a full-time swimsuit brand and barely works at the firm.

YMMV on the "fancy"-ness of the place, but there are alot less lawyers than you expect (from viewing their page). The actual number is closer to 3-4 lawyers (excluding the managing directors) as the rest are legal secretariat/paralegals or "practice trainees" who are yet to come in to the firm, they are just put there to bolster the numbers.

Only the mediocre settle for the status quo. Higher TC pay translates to higher dignity for trainees and make them view boomers more favourably.

I'm the same guy who replied before that. For what it's worth, I do think that they are pretty nice/okay as a firm, just saying that you shouldn't go in there expecting a pretty partner (or at least many lawyer) type firm. It's just a normal small to mid-size type firm, but more on the smaller side.

Any other firm with a pretty legal staff? Can be partner, associate or trainee.

I personally believe that WongP corp has quite a few, they mostly hire females for some reason. In any case the corp lawyers are quite attractive, or at least know how to dress up well.

Braddell Brothers also almost exclusively hired females for a certain time period, I think their ratio is still like 3-4 females hired per 1 male, it used to be only the managing partners and 1 other person was male in the whole office lol.

Very nice! I like women as property especially those with nice pretty assets. More firms suggestions please!
