Productive relationships

Our clients include Nissan, HSBC, Grainger, Bellway, Sainsbury’s, New Look, Atom Bank, HS2 and Five Guys. Whether we’re working with a FTSE 100 business, a government organisation or a privately managed company, our approach is to build productive, trusting long-term relationships.

We always put ourselves in our clients’ shoes and ask the right questions so that we can really understand and anticipate their needs. That’s why we look for trainees who take the time to listen and who want to work for a firm where integrity and reliability matter every bit as much as insight and legal expertise.

Our commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and Inclusion is very important to us. We don’t just follow equal opportunities practices, we work hard to ensure that difference is visibly valued and welcomed, and that our people understand there is so much more to D&I than a set of policies. We recognise that our colleagues should reflect the diverse make up of our clients that we work for and the communities that we work in, and that embracing diversity brings a range of varied and valuable skills, strengths and insights to our business.

We are committed to ensure that our employees feel included and valued. We have a number of Networks which provide a safe and connected environment for our people and allies to share experiences and ideas – these include: BAME (WBD REACH), LGBTQ+ (WBD Pride), Disability, Family and our Women’s (Thrive) network.

"The culture at Womble Bond Dickinson is welcoming, approachable and inclusive. I have been involved in engaging, high level work with key clients which has helped to grow my confidence and competence. I will be going on a client secondment for my next seat rotation which will be a great opportunity to learn more about our clients and their needs from an in-house perspective."
