Norton Rose Fulbright’s retention revealed

Norton Rose Fulbright has announced that it will retain 81 per cent of its spring 2015 qualifying trainees, a fall from its rate last year.

The transatlantic giant will retain 21 of its 26-strong trainee cohort in newly-qualified (NQ) London-based roles. None of the NQs are on short-term contracts.

Two trainees resigned from the process and NRF made 21 offers to the remaining 24 trainees.

It marks a slight drop from spring 2014’s round, during which the firm kept 24 of 26, or 92 per cent, of its cohort. The firm historically posts high retention and made the switch from a six-seat to four-seat system last year.
