LawFuel says – 

Following the 2018 Annus horribilis Russell McVeagh has had the spotlight shined upon it and needed to overhaul its culture to remove the stigma of its sexual harassment scandals.  However it remains firmly entrenched as one of the country’s pre-eminent law firms, demanding the most of its lawyers and generally compensating them generously.  It’s a hard work, play carefully environment.
