    Morning,

    A quick Google search hasn't returned much in the way of cold statistics for attrition rates at City law firms, and I was wondering if anyone here had any information (anecdotal, or otherwise). I'm looking particularly at 3-6 PQE.

    Thanks, guys.

    I would say that an intake of NQs (i.e. trainees who were offered places on qualification) will be reduced to about 40-50% of its original size by the time they all reach 3 PQE. (Most people tend to stay for 18-24 months but once you hit 1.5-2 PQE you see quite a rapid fallout).


    By the time you get to 6 PQE, I'd say you're down to about 15-25% of the original NQ intake.


    Obviously firms recruit laterally, so the above doesn't really provide a full answer to the question you're asking. I think if you're looking at general associate attrition in the 3-6 PQE range, I'd guess somewhere between 25-40% every three years.
