  • Yes, all very interesting. But can someone collect figures for number of fee earners "managed out" or kicked out during probationary periods as well ? I wonder how well all of these firms fair in that respect. I have two friends who are great lawyers, both have recently moved jobs (one friend to one of the firms mentioned above), and soon found themselves out of a job due to "performance reasons" during their probationary periods. It was rubbish - they were excellent lawyers.

  • Once again this makes a mockery of the retention figures - its actually 25 out an intake of 40 - thats a 63% retention not 69%. When will there be a bit more honesty in the statistics?

  • Freshfields has since found jobs in overseas offices for two more of the September qualifying intake.
