Addleshaw Goddard has announced that 90% of its UK trainees will remain with the business on completion of their training contracts.

A total of 46 trainees were offered positions across AG's offices in the UK and the Middle East. The figure includes starters from both March and September 2022.

The number of trainees that have been offered and accepted NQ positions is a 4% increase on the firm's 2021 figures.

The NQ roles have been allocated across a wide range of specialist disciplines, including competition, finance, corporate, disputes, global investigations, IPE, restructuring, construction, engineering and employment.

In the last two years AG has opened new offices in Dublin, Luxembourg, Hamburg, Frankfurt, Munich and Paris presenting trainees with the opportunity to gain experience in Europe, Asia and the Middle East as well as the UK.

John Joyce, Managing Partner at Addleshaw Goddard, said:

"We are going through a period of exceptional growth, building out our offer across multiple teams, offices and geographies, so it's essential that we're always introducing new talent across every area of the business.

"I am always impressed by the competency and commitment of the trainees that join our business and this year is no exception. Addleshaw Goddard is on a fantastic growth trajectory and I look forward to seeing what our newly qualified solicitors go on to achieve."
