"They could be better but the firm does try hard to encourage people to stay."

"They are quite good. However, it will just depend upon how many jobs a department offers."
First year trainee, London
"On the whole I think the retention rates are good and there is a conscious effort made to keep trainees."
Second year trainee, London
"Very good but depends on how popular each seat is in that particular year."
First year trainee, London
"Taylor Wessing try very hard to find places for everyone. The difficulty might be that some departments are more popular than others."
First year trainee, London
"Retention rates are generally good. There are usually enough jobs for everyone but not necessarily in the areas people want."

"The retention rates appear to be high but there are several departments that are more popular than others. Therefore, some people choose to move to a different firm if they cannot get a job in Taylor Wessing in the department that they want."
First year trainee, London
"I think they are as good as they can be, given the fact that some people will choose not to stay and that there will always be departments that are inevitably more popular than others."

First year trainee, London
"The firm's retention rates are quite strong."
