Mayer Brown retains just 10 of 18 qualifying trainees

August 1, 2014 Mayer Brown is retaining just 55% of its trainee cohort this September, giving jobs to ten qualifiers out of the group of 18. Three did not apply.

The low retention for Autumn follows an even lower spring retention rate, when two out of five trainees were retained (40%).

A spokesperson for the firm pointed to the bright side when discussing the retention figures, saying: ”We are delighted that ten of our trainees will take up a permanent position at the firm". Not forgetting, of course, to acknowledge the remainder of the group: "Some of our trainees will be leaving us in order to pursue opportunities outside the firm and we wish them all the very best for the future".
