"Retention rates at Baker & McKenzie are generally very strong and the firm really makes an effort to retain its trainees."
Second year trainee, London
"I have been offered a NQ position, and retention is fairly good, but some departments are very competitive."
Second year trainee, London
"I have found that retention rates this intake will probably not be as good. Several trainees have not been offered their preference, and there are rumours that one year contracts have been offered as well."

"I think retention rates are getting better but still leave room for concern."
Second year trainee, London
"Retention rates are normally pretty high - the firm tries as hard as it can to keep good candidates."
Second year trainee, London
"Retention rates have been broadly good in recent qualification rounds but could be improved upon and transparency as to which departments are employing could help."
Second year trainee, London
"I think my performance so far has not ruled me out of an NQ position, but retention rates seem to be in flux at the moment. In particular, it seems that it is difficult to get exactly the department of your choosing with some departments being incredibly competitive, such as disputes."
First year trainee, London
"The firm has very good retention rates. When people don't get kept on, it tends to be because the department they want to be in is heavily oversubscribed."
