What a fun-filled Halloween! Slaughter and May made 440 associates very happy bunnies by introducing a bonus for the first time. (It’s probably about time that the elite City firm realised that, even if it is a privilege to work at the firm, that might not quite be enough.)
A bigger surprise was that Clifford Chance, Herbert Smith, Linklaters, Mayer Brown Rowe & Maw, Pinsent Masons and Simmons & Simmons are striking a blow against homophobia, with Stonewall describing them as “gay-friendly” in its new recruitment guide.
Who said the media is only interested in bad news? Happy Halloween.
