Start as you mean
to go on

Today’s trainee solicitors are tomorrow’s associates and partners. That’s why we make a long-term investment in all our trainees. Right from the start, we’ll focus on helping you develop a lasting career with an ambitious firm.

A firm with strong ambition

Bond Dickinson has ambitions to be a top 20 UK law firm by 2020, recognised for delivering an outstanding client experience. Carrying out more meaningful, challenging and rewarding work for our clients makes this a sustainable business for our people that’s full of opportunities.

Make a genuine contribution

We’re not looking to simply fill training contracts – we want to find trainees who can contribute to our collective success today and begin to build careers with us. If you have what it takes, you can look forward to working on a variety of challenging projects for high-profile clients surrounded by supportive, approachable professionals.

Seven locations

We take a “one team” approach at Bond Dickinson so, wherever you join us, you’ll be working with teams from across the business on projects spanning our business groups. Below are examples of the kind of work you can expect to be involved with.

“There's a very ambitious, exciting atmosphere – it feels like the firm is going places and everybody is playing their part to try and make that happen. New people have been coming in and the work is flowing at a rate of knots,”

Trainee quote from Chambers Student Guide 2017

The right decision

This is training you can trust, designed to help you achieve your long-term potential. We've gained award nominations for the depth of support and breadth of experience we offer and - as you'll see in our profiles - plenty of acclaim from current trainees too.
