Three of the newly-qualified solicitors (NQs) will join Bakers’ corporate practice and three will join the employment department. The IP team and EU, competition and trade team will welcome two NQs each whilst the banking and dispute resolution teams will receive one NQ apiece.
Baker McKenzie training principal Arron Slocombe said: “We are very pleased to welcome another strong group of trainees into permanent roles as qualified lawyers across both our transactional and advisory departments. Our retention rate remains high this spring, although not quite at the level we have seen previously. Attracting and retaining the best talent is crucial to grow our business and that’s why we give our trainees the best opportunities for a successful and fulfilling career.”
