Linklaters has revealed that it will retain 93 per cent of its final-seat trainees in newly-qualified (NQ) positions this autumn, becoming the first magic circle firm to announce retention figures this year.
The firm has announced that 53 of its 57 trainees will be taking a position as a newly qualified solicitor with the firm in September 2014. The firm made 54 offers in total, of which all but one accepted.
The 93 per cent retention rate is one of Linklaters’ better results: typically, retention at the firm hovers around the 85 per cent mark, which is still above average for the profession as a whole.
