RPC posts 82% trainee retention rate

RPC will retain 14 of its 17 London-based trainees who are qualifying in September 2017. 

Of the 14, 12 will be based in the firm’s London office, with one based in Bristol. One lucky NQ will transfer to the firm’s Hong Kong office on a permanent basis from January 2018.

The qualifying trainees will be joining the firm’s Insurance, Commercial Disputes, Corporate, IP & Technology, Media and Construction & Projects.

Simon Hart, Partner and Training Principal, said:

“Like all law firms, our trainees work very hard to secure their training contracts and then throw themselves into two years of training. It is incredibly satisfying to see our junior talent mature and to see such a high number ultimately qualifying into roles across the departments this year, including our first London-based NQ moving to our office in Hong Kong. Whilst we are unable to accommodate a small number of our qualifying trainees due to certain departments being heavily over-subscribed with applicants, every single one of our trainees has made a positive contribution to life at RPC over the last two years.”
