Global law firm White & Case LLP has announced that it will retain 75 percent of its London trainees who are due to qualify in September 2016, after 15 of a total intake of 20 accepted positions at the Firm.
"White & Case offers young lawyers a tremendous start to their careers, with opportunities to work on the complex, cross-border matters that are the Firm's essential DNA," said partner Justin Benson, who heads the trainee solicitor programme in the London office.
"Demand for English law qualified lawyers continues to grow both in our London office and across the Firm's international network. We have consistently high retention rates in London, reflecting our ability to attract, retain and support the development of the very best young lawyers. White & Case also has an enviable track record of promoting our best associates to partner, making us a compelling destination for young legal talent."
The Firm retained 87 percent of its London trainees who qualified in March 2016, and 100 percent of trainees who qualified during 2015. The programme, which has been established in London for 18 years, offers trainees a six-month international secondment.
