2017

"The retention rates have so far been very good, but it is always difficult to predict because it depends on business needs and the popularity of a seat."
Second year trainee, London
"The firm has high retention rates and aims to offer a job to its trainees subject to business needs at the time."
Other - NQ, London
"The firm has a very strong retention rate but everything always depends on the business needs and you may not be offered a job in the department you want."
First year trainee, London
"To my knowledge, every year for a while now, everyone who wants to stay on has been able to."
First year trainee, London
"The retention rates have been good historically."

2015

"This year retention rates were 100%."
First year trainee, London
"Retention rates are generally good, but as it's a small firm, it generally requires good timing and a bit of luck. For instance, if seven out of seven trainees in a given year all want to qualify into corporate, that is unlikely to happen, but my understanding is that the firm will try to place you somewhere in the firm."
First year trainee, London
"The firm generally has quite high retention rates."

"Generally retention rates are very high, but as certain teams are very small, it may sometimes depend on how many people want jobs in the same practices."
First year trainee, London
"Generally trainee retention is very good. Being a small firm, there are only usually one or two jobs per department, so depends largely on preferences of other members of intake. Firm seems to be good at accommodating and "making room" by creating slightly different roles so that trainees can be retained and business needs can be met."
First year trainee, London
"Generally the firm has a very high retention rate, however business demand is the biggest factor and this will determine how many NQ jobs are open in each practice group. The training principal and the firm so make a big effort to keep most of the trainees though."
