Bond Dickinson legal briefing

Bond Dickinson LLP is a leading commercial law firm providing regulatory, corporate, commercial, real estate and dispute resolution services to some of the UK's pre-eminent corporate and public sector organisations. At Bond Dickinson LLP we offer a truly exceptional level of service delivering real value for money and attract high calibre lawyers as a result of the quality and diversity of work we undertake. We have achieved the title of 'Best Legal Adviser' in the Legal Week Intelligence Client Satisfaction Report for three years running, as well as being ranked in the top three of the 75 biggest business UK law firms.  The report put us ahead of the game on service, advice and cost/billing issues.  And we are continuously investing to make sure we stay ahead.

The firm's significant growth in the last decade, including its recent merger between Bond Pearce and Dickinson Dees, has been based on forging strong client relationships, delivering effective business solutions and recruiting talented people. With more than 700 lawyers, including 142 partners, Bond Dickinson has the scale and depth to provide commercial advantage for our clients. We advise more than 40 FTSE 350 companies making us one of the leading FTSE advisors outside of London.

As well as having traditional teams in all of the major areas of law, we run ‘virtual' sector groups nationally across all disciplines, with particular experience of working with clients in Energy, Retail, Real Estate, Financial Institutions, Transport and Infrastructure, Chemical and Manufacturing and Private Wealth. This approach enables us to keep up to date with our clients' industries and ensure any advice we give is in context.  We work by applying our deep sector knowledge and our rigorous understanding of our client's businesses and goals so that we become a strategic ally; ensuring we provide excellent advice and innovative solutions.

We know that legal expertise is no longer enough. Our clients want lawyers who understand their specific needs and have a deep understanding of their businesses and the sectors in which they operate. Our clients expect to get better value from a smaller number of firms providing a broader range of advice or highly specialist advice from sector experts. They want adaptability, flexibility, cost effectiveness and new thinking. A firm to work in strategic partnership with them: the Bond Dickinson way.
