DLA Piper has revealed it is keeping 83 per cent of its September 2012 qualifying trainee solicitors.
The top 10 firm made 78 offers to the 86 trainees that applied for newly qualified (NQ) positions at the firm, with 75 accepting roles. Four trainees chose to withdraw from the application process.
The result shows a slight drop from September 2011 figures, where the firm posted a 90 per cent NQ retention rate, holding onto 69 out of 77 trainees.
BLP is keeping 16 out of 20 trainees, while Mishcon is retaining 9 out of 18.
