Retention tension

Predictions that the trainee model is bust are belied by this season’s retention rates. So far Ashurst, BLP, Nabarro and Olswang have kept on the vast majority of their trainees. A leap of faith, or a solid business decision?

Ashurst keeps on 96 per cent of qualifiers

Berwin Leighton Paisner announces 89 per cent retention

Nabarro retention continues upward trend with 100 per cent score

Olswang joins the 100 per cent retention club
