LawFuel says –
Kensington Swan has developed something of an enviable workplace culture, both more relaxed on the one hand and inclusive on the other. Reports indicate that while the firm has had some ups and downs in terms of its development, its culture remains strongly inclusive and less pressured than the ‘Golden Triangle’ firms.
