Bakers retains 100% of trainees in autumn 2018
Baker McKenzie has released its autumn 2018 retention rates, keeping 100% of its trainees.
The newly qualified lawyers will be fairly evenly spread between the firm’s practices, with the IT/commercial team coming out on top with three new additions. The others will be joining the corporate finance, IP, M&A, dispute resolution, tax, and competition teams.
As far as autumn 2018 retention goes as its been reported thus far across all major firms, Bakers joins Travers Smith and Ropes & Gray in making a 100% rate. Clifford Chance is at the back of the pack with 76.6%.
