Bond Dickinson merger creates major new law firm

May 7, 2013

Law firm Bond Pearce, which has a major office in Bristol, and Newcastle-based Dickinson Dees have completed their merger to create Bond Dickinson.

The new firm has 1,200 staff, including 142 partners and more than 700 lawyers, working across real estate, corporate and commercial, dispute resolution and private wealth from eight UK wide offices, including a new combined London office.

The firm will focus on seven key sectors – energy, transport and infrastructure, retail and fast-moving consumer goods, chemicals and manufacturing, private wealth, real estate and financial institutions.

Bond Dickinson managing partner Jonathan Blair said: “The firm is clearly focused on the integration of our teams and maintaining excellent levels of service for our clients. Successful integration will allow us to quickly bring the advantages of the merger home for our clients and, as this merger was driven by clients, our aim as Bond Dickinson is to provide them with the best of both firms.

“Our strategy is firmly based on deep sector expertise and a clear understanding of our clients’ needs. By aligning our merged business to our clients’ industries we help to create highly successful working relationships to which we now bring greater sector insight and wider legal expertise.”

Chairman Nick Page added: “Our new scale will give us the strength and depth along with sector insight to support our clients' growth plans and will give us a solid platform for further growth and lateral recruitment. Bond Dickinson will draw on the best of both firms to deliver outstanding client service and build on the great reputation that each has for quality work.

“Our business focus as Bond Dickinson is working with clients in our seven main sectors and supporting our national client base. Our recent appointment to the Network Rail panel as one of only five full service law firms is indicative of our commitment to providing what our clients need and the increased capability we can now offer them as Bond Dickinson.”
