Denton Wilde Sapte has become the latest firm to ask future trainees to defer.
Dentons, which hires around 50 trainees in the spring and autumn, is seeking to defer the start date of between 5 and 10 per cent of the trainees from the spring intake. The option to defer is being offered on a strictly 'first come, first serve' basis.

The firm has not yet finalised the package it will offer to the trainees, but the spokesperson said that Dentons is, however, aware of the payments other firms have offered.
