"The calibre of trainees which our trainee programme attracts is outstanding and I’m pleased that all 13 graduates have chosen to continue to develop their careers at White & Case," said partner and training principal Justin Benson, who heads the trainee solicitor programme in the London office. "We continue to see growing demand for English law expertise in cross-border transactions and aim to provide our trainees with the skills and experience they need to become successful lawyers in a leading and dynamic international law firm."
