Leading law firm Mishcon de Reya LLP has retained 24 of its 28-strong trainee cohort who are due to qualify in September.

Starting on a salary of £90,000, the new associates will qualify in to a number of departments including:

Daniel Lipman and Samantha Kakati, co-training principals at the firm, said: “We are delighted to be retaining so many high-calibre lawyers as they move into the next stage of their careers.  It’s a testament to their valuable contribution to the firm’s service areas and culture over their time with us to date. We look forward to continuing to support our junior lawyers in realising their full potential across our wide range of practice areas and to celebrating their next achievements.”

In January, Mishcon  merged with Taylor Vinters which brought in an additional 200 staff, 145 of those are fee-earners. Prior to the merger, Mishcon offered 25 training contracts annually, while Taylor Vinters offered five. The newly-merged firm has since confirmed that both training contract schemes will run “in parallel” this year.
