Baker McKenzie reports a 100% trainee retention rate for autumn period

Baker McKenzie will retain all 14 of its trainees set to qualify this September; one trainee will commence work on a fixed-term basis.

The firm often boasts strong retention scores and this year is no different. Commenting on the 100% retention score, training principal Arron Slocombe said: “This is a reflection of Baker McKenzie’s commitment to retaining the best talent and demonstrates the growth of the firm. We are thrilled with the 100% acceptance rate from our trainees, who are embedded in the culture of our firm. Trainees accepted roles in both transactional and advisory departments.” The soon-to-be qualified solicitors will join the teams in M&A, dispute resolution, intellectual property, information technology and communications, finance, tax and EU, competition and trade, and be handed £77,000 pay checks to accompany their new role as associates.
