This article asserts that lawyers are beating a path to the South West, drawn by the quality of life and the quality of work. The law firm Burges Salmon made a brave attempt to project the joys of Bristol, England by showing the space in the city but eventually resorted to wetsuits. The firm's managing partner Guy Stobart says that the lawyers in his firm do work bard but it is an urban myth that people work as hard outside London, England as in City firms. The main difference between the leading Bristol firms and those in the City is that the former can marry next-to-zero commuting times and access to the sea and fresh air with top-quality work.
