Allen & Overy HQLondon’s Allen & Overy will only retain 70% of its trainees for September 2009 and March 2010.

The Magic Circle firm has not made a final decision about the retention rate, and said the figure was a “working assumption in light of the current financial climate.”

Allen & Overy retained 86% of its trainees in 2008, 90% in 2007.


The firm offers its training contracts two years in advance, with some 50 trainees joining each year.

Allen & Overy is expected to cut 9% of associates, 9% of support staff and 9% of its partnership.

Around half of the affected positions are in London. The firm is also freezing pay and billing rates at 2008 levels.
