2016: Highest NQ retention rates since the Recession

June 16, 2016

With all of the economic uncertainty surrounding the upcoming referendum on EU membership, it is very pleasing to report that it has been very evident this year that law firms of all sizes have posted higher retention figures for NQ solicitors than we have seen since the recession, with only a small handful of notable exceptions.

Equally encouraging, this enhanced retention has not just been seen in the transactional areas of Banking, Corporate and Real Estate, but also in contentious areas such as Commercial Litigation and Employment.

We have also managed to assist the vast majority of those who registered with CapeClarke, who did not remain with their training firms.

Congratulations to those Trainee Solicitors who have secured their NQ roles this year – and to those who are still waiting, we will continue to do everything we can to help.


If you have been thinking about a move or would just like some general advice about options in the market, please feel free to contact one of the team on 0113 2385965.
