KLegal hikes deferral pay to appease trainees

KLegal has agreed to pay £6,000 to trainees who have been forced to defer their start dates until 2004. The firm faced outrage from KLegal and McGrigor Donald's 2003 trainees who were randomly selected for compulsory deferrals. The firm originally offered just £2,500 – £7,500 less than the amount paid to its trainees who deferred voluntarily last July. Husnara Begum
