Osborne Clarke has retained all seven of its spring 2016 qualifying trainees.
It’s the third time in eight retention rounds that Osborne Clarke has managed to hold on to all of its qualifiers. Last autumn the firm kept six of nine.
The corporate group welcomes its largest influx of newly-qualified solicitors in some time, having not taken on any last autumn. Two qualifiers will join the corporate team in London, while another two go to the Bristol team.
Another will join the London commercial department, while Bristol will take a commercial disputes NQ. The final qualifier will be based in the firm’s Thames Valley office, working for the banking team.
Osborne Clarke managing partner Ray Berg said: “Congratulations to all of our spring qualifiers. It’s fantastic to see such talent joining the ranks, and I’m really proud that all of our trainees will be staying here at Osborne Clarke. Our business relies on our people and I look forward to working with these seven brilliant lawyers in the future.”
