Seven of seven trainees retained at HowardKennedyFSI

HowardKennedyFsi has announced that it will keep on 100 per cent of its seven 2013 qualifiers.

The firm was created earlier in February through the merger of Howard Kennedy and Finers Stephens Innocent. The former had three trainees reaching qualification in 2013; the latter had four.

Three of the newly qualified (NQ) solicitors will join the corporate department, two will join litigation, while the remaining two will take up jobs in family and real estate.

Graduate recruitment partner Vernon Dennis said: “We are delighted to have offered all our trainees qualifying in September new roles across the firm.  We are committed to investing time and effort in our trainees and as an integral part of the firm’s strategy to strengthen our depth of offering, we are especially proud that we are able to draw from our talented pool of trainees.”
