Ropes & Gray Announces 100% Trainee Retention for its September 2018 Qualifiers
Ropes & Gray will retain 100% of its London trainees who are due to qualify in September 2018. The six-strong cohort – who were all offered and accepted positions at the firm - will qualify into the firm’s Antitrust, Finance, Litigation & Enforcement, Private Equity, Private Investment Funds, and Real Estate practices.
Ruchit Patel, London Trainee Recruitment Partner, said: “We are delighted to see this high calibre group of trainees qualify into six different departments at the firm. It is a great reflection of our breadth of growth in areas that our clients deem important. The retention rate is also a testament to the quality and thoughtfulness of our training programme.”
The training programme, which includes an international seat, has been running since 2011 and is now made up of 14 trainees. Upon qualification, trainees earn £115,000, plus bonus.
