Elsewhere, regional firm Mills & Reeve managed to secure a position at 72 compared to 83 in 2009. Meanwhile, a new entry onto the list is Tunbridge Wells-based Cripps Harries Hall, which came in at 97 proving that you don’t have to be based in the capital to benefit from the best working environment.
