What makes a Womble Bond Dickinson Trainee?
It matters to us that we have the right people working alongside us but, actually, there isn’t a typical WBD person. Our trainees come from diverse backgrounds and bring a range of experience – and that’s important to us.
Of course, we expect everyone to share our enthusiasm for the law and to demonstrate a passion for our business.
Beyond that we want to see:
A strong academic background
Commercial understanding and client focus
The ability to form lasting relationships
The first half of my training contract has been even more varied than I had anticipated; I’ve made meaningful contributions to everything from contentious insolvency matters which have gone all the way to trial, right across to M&A work for private equity clients. I’m hoping the second half is going to be just as diverse."
