However, it has had considerably fewer qualifiers per intake in recent years: for example, its autumn 2013 cohort was half the size of its autumn 2010 one.
In the 11 retention rounds since autumn 2009, the firm has kept on 424 out of 518 trainees, or 82 per cent.
Meanwhile, Bond Dickinson had confirmed that it will retain 18 out of its 21 qualifying trainees, or 86%.
Seven of the qualifiers will join the firm’s Newcastle office - the old headquarters of pre-merger Dickinson Dees. Four will take up positions in the Bristol office, three in Southampton and two each in Leeds and Plymouth. They will join the firm’s real estate, corporate, commercial disputes, planning, insolvency, insurance and commercial teams.
