Take a closer glimpse into the Saxton Bampfylde team with our regular View from the River feature. The company’s London office, from which the majority of the team works, is based next to the iconic Thames. In this edition we bring you top tips, insights and ‘revealing’ youthful hopes from the Government team.

Demanding, diverse, constantly reinventing.
We’ve learned better than to make predictions right now! If pressed, though, we’d expect lots of change, and some big legislative and political agendas to be delivered which are going to put high-quality talent at even more of a premium. We’re also expecting third parties – especially industry groups and the third sector – to carry on building up their policy capability and developing louder voices.
Ichi Richi, on Strutton Ground, for good-quality, reasonably-priced sushi in a cosy basement restaurant. For proper coffee, Iris & June on Howick Place. And Pickles, on Old Queen Street, is an old-fashioned greasy spoon café a stone’s throw from our old offices. We once saw The Thick of It being filmed inside.
You can’t beat the hog roast rolls at Oink.
A Little Life, by Hanya Yanagihara – engrossing and unusual. A Time of Lies, by Douglas Board – a political satire by a former Saxton Bampfylde colleague, featuring a populist PM, a daring plot, and the threat of a nuclear strike on Belgium. The Better Angels of Our Nature by Steven Pinker – fascinating study on the decline of violence through human history.
Music, cycling, craft beer, Italy, and travel.
With one pick each, we’ve come up with George Orwell, Beatrice Webb, Tim Berners-Lee, David Attenborough, and Ralph Vaughan-Williams.
A policeman, a librarian, a chef, a Wimbledon champion/bestselling author/Prime Minister, and Slash from Guns ‘n’ Roses.
