2014

"I chose Bond Dickinson for the culture of the firm and its presence in the legal market (particularly post-merger)."
First year trainee, Newcastle
"The culture, my impression of the firm on my vacation scheme and the people who I met, and the location of the office where I was offered my training contract informed my choice."
First year trainee, Newcastle
"The intakes are quite small given the size of the firm, and I wanted the responsibility and the space to grow and be stretched."
Second year trainee, Newcastle
"I chose the firm for the quality of work and clients, the company culture and colleagues, their reputation, the location and size."
First year trainee, Newcastle
"I was attracted to the reputation and the firm's client list."
First year trainee, Bristol
"I originally accepted a training contract with Bond Pearce, and in between acceptance and starting, the firm merged with Dickinson Dees to become Bond Dickinson. Post-merger, there is still a culture of support and openness, a genuine passion for the work, and a clear direction the firm wants to move that is based around client care. Plus, I am now working for a strong national firm!"
First year trainee, Southampton
"I was drawn to the firm's ambition and drive, more so than most other firms who have grand plans for expansion."
