"Retention rates are good. I hope to be kept on."
First year trainee, London
"They are among the highest in the City."
First year trainee, London
"Retention is very good. The trainee cohort is small compared to the size of the firm so they can keep most people on."
Second year trainee, London
"Retention rates are excellent. More often than not, the reason people aren't kept on is because they want to go elsewhere or pursue a different career path."
First year trainee, London
"The rates are good but the popular spots are often highly sought after."
Second year trainee, London
"While the firm retention rates are very good, there is healthy competition for new qualifier roles in some areas."
Second year trainee, London
"They have consistently been very strong."

"Retention rates are excellent: slightly below 100%, but for the right reasons. Trainees rarely stress about whether they'll be kept on, only whether they'll get kept in on the department they want. The firm does a great job of finding a place for good lawyers, though."
Second year trainee, London
"Retention rates are excellent. The approach here is to take on less trainees in the first place so that there is room to take all on as NQs if they reach the required standards."
Second year trainee, London
"The retention rates are very good. I am under the impression that the firm see me as an investment so they want to keep everyone on where possible. They put a lot of emphasis on mid-seat appraisals in order to make sure that any problems are resolved at that stage."
First year trainee, London
"Retention rates are excellent. The firm recruits at trainee level with the expectation they will be offering NQ positions in two years' time."
Second year trainee, London
"Retention rates are generally good and the firm has always tried to accommodate trainee preferences."
Second year trainee, London
