The Firm

Bond Dickinson, a dynamic UK law firm, provides a comprehensive legal service to our clients in a wide range of legal sectors across seven cities - Aberdeen, Bristol, Leeds, London, Newcastle, Plymouth and Southampton. Following a successful merger in 2013 Bond Dickinson continues to increase its business by growing its presence across the UK, strengthening client relationships, winning new business and investing in more highly skilled and ambitious people. Anyone at the start of their legal career would be joining them in a period of expansion and excitement. Their clients range from FTSE 100 businesses and governmental organisations to privately managed business and wealthy individuals. They pride ourselves on asking the right questions so that they can deliver the right solutions and put the right team on each client need.

The Work

They are a full service law firm with a focus on eight major sectors: energy, waste and natural resources; retail and fast moving consumer goods (FMCG); real estate; financial institutions; chemicals and manufacturing; transport and infrastructure; private wealth and insurance. They also are continuing to expand their technology; hospitality and leisure and education sectors.


Trainee Profile

They look at their trainee recruitment as a long-term investment. Trainees at Bond Dickinson will have an opportunity to spend six months in four Business Groups, gaining a real breadth of experience along the way. This is your training contract and it’s up to you to make the most of it, but along the way they offer fantastic opportunities to develop your legal career in a firm that is really going places. You will have access to high quality work and senior client contacts. They regularly second trainees to our most high profile clients. They keep our trainee intake relatively small, which means that more often than not, you will be the only trainee in a team, giving you a large amount of access to the experience and advice from people who are happy to teach. They are looking for people across our seven offices. There is no typical Bond Dickinson trainee - their trainees come from varied backgrounds and bring a range of different experience, and that is very important to them. What all of our people do share is an enthusiasm for law and a passion for our business. Beyond that they look for our trainees to have a strong academic background, although this is not the only criteria we use when shortlisting applications. It is as important to them that candidates can demonstrate commercial awareness and a natural ability when dealing with people.
