  • By all accounts recruitment, especially trainee recruitment, in DWF Scotland is a shambolic affair.

  • 70% isn't a bad retention rate; it's simply an average one.

    Firms like Dickinson Dees a couple of years ago were posting 36% retention rates. That's bad.

  • Actually, 70% is considerably below average. Of the 50 firms Lawyer2B has reported on this autumn, only three have done worse than DWF. For firms with more than 30 qualifiers, it comes bottom.

    80% is more like the norm. Which does put Dickinson Dees' 2011 result into greater perspective, certainly.
