The AllAboutLaw.co.uk awards, which took place on 29 September, are voted for by current trainees and vacation scheme students via anonymous employee satisfaction surveys. Respondents were asked to rank their firms on a variety of different topics, including job satisfaction, training, career progression, skill development, company culture, level of responsibility, team relationships and work-life balance.

Caroline Sarson, HR graduate recruitment manager, said: "The vacation scheme is an important part of our trainee solicitor process, and these awards are a testament of the time and effort our associates and partners put in to develop and supervise our students whilst on vacation scheme at Mayer Brown. We're thrilled to have won these awards and to be recognised for our dedication to our trainees, who are an invaluable part of the firm."
