  • With sky high law firm rates, clients do not care about work life balance at their Magic Circle firms. They care about getting their highest priority matters handled expeditiously by top quality lawyers. I just think clients to not care how firms manage their work forces.

  • The internal processes of a law firm, especially when it comes to the particular structure of employment contracts and flexible working schemes for the employees, should, in my opinion, be managed internally. Clients care about the end result and the fees which they have to dish out for any given deal/case. I know that Links are famous for the level of attention awarded to the clients and that may sometimes be a great thing; however, when it comes to flexible working, if anything, it should hold a consultation with its employees and not the clients. Staff morale matters a lot and the firm should see flexible working for what it is - a way to help its employees to have a better work/life balance.

  • We shouldn't forget that these are the same firms that think their clients demanded they open new sausage factories in Belfast with rock bottom salaries to save a few pennies.
