Eight out of 11 Mayer Brown trainees will stay on at the firm as newly-qualified (NQ) associates come September 2017.
The international firm received 10 applications and offered nine jobs. Eight of the trainees took the firm up on its offer, all of whom will be on permanent contracts.
The Litigation, Banking & Finance, Corporate & Securities, Real Estate, Pensions, Employment & Benefits and IP teams will all welcome a new NQ team member.
William Glassey, Training Principal at Mayer Brown said:
‘I want to congratulate all our September qualifiers; they have all done extremely well. We are also delighted that eight of our trainees will be staying on in permanent positions within our practices. They represent our investment in the future of the firm and we look forward to watching their continuing development as they build their careers.’
The lucky eight can expect to pocket an impressive £71,500 a year in their new roles.
