Published on 07 August 2018

This marks another year of strong retention rates for the City-based law firm.

City headquartered professional services firm RPC has retained 82% of its trainees, based on its March and September 2018 qualifying rounds. Mirroring last year's results, 14 out of the 17 London based trainees have secured Newly Qualified solicitor roles within the firm.

13 of those remaining with the firm will be based in RPC's London office, with one of the NQs being based in Hong Kong.

Simon Hart, Partner and Training Principal, said: "Our qualifying trainees are a strong, talented and cohesive group of junior lawyers. Having watched them through their training to qualification, I am delighted that so many are staying within the business for the next stage of their career. Their enthusiasm for their future roles will add further energy to the core, growing teams across our business." 

This intake of trainees will be joining some of the firm's core areas with two joining the Insurance practice (one in Construction and one in Professional & Financial Risks); four joining Commercial Disputes and two going to the Corporate, IP & Technology, Media and Commercial, Technology & Outsourcing groups respectively.
