"The firm really seems to want to keep everyone which is very encouraging."
First year trainee, Guildford
"The retention rates are good although it can depend on the specific departments where the trainees want to qualify."
Second year trainee, Guildford
"The firm has a good track record of retaining its trainees, with a large majority of trainees being retained on qualification. The firm communicates its thoughts with the trainees and no animosity exists between the trainees regarding qualification - we all want each other to prosper!"
Second year trainee, Guildford
"The firm works hard to keep people, and retention rates are good, with many trainees staying on and qualifying into their preferred seats."
First year trainee, Guildford
"Good, although the size of the firm means that business needs don't always allow for trainees to qualify where they wish. The firm will try to keep everyone on though and have even been known to create new roles to retain trainees where they can."
Second year trainee, Guildford

"Retention rates are generally very good. The firm specialises in corporate law and if trainees are interested in qualifying into one of the more 'corporate-y' departments, (e.g. Dispute Resolution, Real Estate, Commercial or Corporate), they are much more likely to get a job as an NQ."
Second year trainee, Guildford
"Retention at the firm is generally good, although it depends on whether the job you want is available."
First year trainee, Guildford
"I believe the firm like to keep all trainees that they recruit if possible."
