  • Linklaters is a disgrace. They billed more than £30million for lehman brothers alone and yet they are getting rid of a third of their trainees.

    Baring in mind the 47 offers includes trainees who were made offers for seats they rejected and not all of the trainees have been informed if they are staying on yet, the actual retention rate is around 67%.

  • Maybe the reason Linklaters' trainees are not being kept on is because they cannot spell yet - "Baring in mind" or should it read "Bearing in mind..."

    "they are getting rid of a third of their trainees"

    No they are not. What a ridiculous comment. They are losing 15. I don't know how many trainees there are at Linklaters but I'd imagine it is around 300. So it is about 5%.

  • Mr Wolf, I do believe Mr Trainee was referring to a third of this particular intake. In which case his maths is more or less correct . . .

  • Berwin Leighton Paisner's figure is a lie as well there were 17 trainees that started in March so the retention rate is actually 70% not 75%!
