Surpasses recent uplifts by a host of top City firms

US law firm White & Case has upped its Legal Practice Course (LPC) maintenance grant by a healthy 40%. The hike follows similar moves made by a plethora of top City outfits in recent months.

Soon-to-be trainees at White & Case’s London office — which offers around 50 training contracts annually — will receive a hefty £10,500 in living support, up £3,000 from the previous award of £7,500. The increase is effective from September 2018.

The outfit’s newest recruits complete the vocational course at BPP Law School’s Holborn branch. The firm also fully funds LPC fees.

The 2018 LPC Most List

Justin Benson, partner and leader of the White & Case trainee solicitor programme in London, said:

“White & Case has provided an industry-leading training scheme in London for 20 years, and our ongoing commitment to our trainees includes ensuring they have the necessary financial support to live in London and complete their studies successfully.”

Legal Cheek‘s Firms Most List shows White & Case’s five-figure maintenance sum is one of the largest currently on offer and follows a series of similar uplifts.

In January, we revealed that magic circle duo Clifford Chance and Freshfields had boosted their grants to £10,000. Not to be outdone by their magic circle rivals, Linklaters, Slaughter and May and Allen & Overy quickly followed suit. Other firms to up their LPC offering to £10,000 include Herbert Smith Freehills, Hogan Lovells, Kirkland & Ellis and Norton Rose Fulbright.

What’s the wedge like for NQs over at Ince & Co these days – are they a decent shop for areas of law like leveraged finance and private equity?

TO THE CONSTANT COMMMENTERS desperately asking about NQ rates at crap sweatshops

You’re all a bunch of betacuck wage slaves. Use your imagination. You might just come up with a better plan than bending over and opening your ass cheeks in return for an underwhelming salary and the sobering realisation that you’re a spotty, stressed-to-fuck, unhealthy, socially maladjusted, zombified excuse for a human being.

Any firm in London that pays its NQ associates less than £120k. BigLaw is one of the world’s greatest ponzi games and getting paid a decent wedge is the only way to make it worthwhile
