The guide contains numerous positive comments which again endorses the Firm's status as a leading London law firm and some of those are as follows:

"Congratulations on the fantastic results for 2015/16!  The firm has wone in; Satisfaction, expectations, quality of work, client contact, stress-free, work/life and friendliness."

"Payne Hicks Beach 'has a lot to offer': a 'real breadth of experience', a 'challenging and rewarding level of involvement' and a 'stunning location in the heart of Lincoln's Inn' all serve to set this firm apart.  Trainees particularly praise the firm's 'longstanding reputation for family and private client work', but also emphasise the 'great range of cases' they experience."

"You will receive an 'unbeatable quality of work', including 'very complex transactions' that are 'enormously rewarding'.  If you are looking for a firm that has a 'reputation for providing good training' and is filled with 'genuine satisfied and enthusiastic trainees', then keep Payne Hicks Beach in mind."

Online surveys were sent to graduate recruitment managers at the UK's largest law firms and 165 firms agreed to take part distributing the survey to their trainees. Once again, over 3,000 completed surveys were received which makes this the biggest survey of trainee views to date, and which provided a particularly robust sample to analyse. The data from the surveys was processed and analysed by the editor of The Lex 100 publication.

Peter Black, Managing Partner at Payne Hicks Beach said:

"Again, we are very pleased to be recognised for our commitment to training excellence. We value our trainees and their contribution to the firm and to receive Lex 100 winner status in seven categories is proof of our commitment and quality to training."
