Fieldfisher is to retain all 13 of its September final-seat trainees as newly qualified solicitors. 

Three join the finance group, two go to the technology practice, two to IP and another two to regulatory. The final four join the corporate, dispute resolution, property litigation and employment/pensions teams.

Fieldfisher’s training principal Edward Miller said: “Many congratulations to our trainees – we are delighted that they are staying with the firm. Internal training is a key value at Fieldfisher and we are dedicated to developing the lawyers of the future.  “To reflect this, and the firm’s growth, this year we have increased the number of our trainees in London to 14, as well as two in Birmingham and two in Manchester.”

The firm is also looking to recruit more NQs for September.
