  • If Bond Dickinson were a person, she would have beautiful eyes, and hair that smelt like cinnamon. God bless Bond Dickinson, and all who spend their time in her.

  • Can I ask what I've missed in terms of the DD / BD negativity? I'm part of the church of Bond Dickinson and I hope they have mercy on the souls of those who gently ridicule their gushing press releases and the hyperbole of their advertising.

  • To Anonymous in house lawyer at 1.51pm on 7 August.

    You needn't worry. What you are reading are the postings of a small group of (self-evidently) bitter former DD people who appear (a) to hold a grudge against their former firm and (b) to have nothing better to do than to submit these posts. They need to move on. If you have any concerns I suggest that you telephone Cat Griffiths and ask her how many people are involved. You might be pleasantly surprised how small the number is. Bond Dickinson is a good firm full of great people. And no, I am not, and have never been, at Bond Dickinson, Bond Pearce or Dickinson Dees!

  • To be honest the only difference I see between BD stories and those pour out by other firms is contained within the comments section.

    I just don't understand why this firm attracts so many comments.

  • To the anonymous marketing person at 6:59,

    How many? Are we talking 10? 15? I know DD burned a lot of bridges in the past with ex-staff but I think most people secretly rather like BD.

  • The headline is that Bond Dickinson have just achieved record profits.

    Success attracts comments.

  • I think that all the Dickinson firms should merge with Hill Dickinson, to become become Bond Hill Dicksons Dickinson Dickinson Dickinsons Dickinson Dickinson Dickinson Dickinson Dickinson Dickinson Dickinson Dickinson Malcolm Rowley Neville Robin Taylor Wood Manser Parker Hill. Heh! That would boost their PEP! Then they could have a massive redundancy programme and maybe only Malcolm would be left. Good name for a firm that - Malcolm. Why are so many lawyers called Dickinson? Is it in the genes or something, or is it just Dickensian nostalgia?

  • Dear anon poster 6.59, 7th August,

    I had assumed the comments section was for comments. In this case many, very positive comments about Bond Dickinson's recent financial results; which are very good.

    I'm ex-DD. I was exceptionally badly treated when I worked there. Details that vindicate me have since become public, but I haven't received an apology for what happened or the rumour circulated about me after I left. That said, I don't resent Dickinson Dees, because what happened wasn't about them. It was the fault of a very small number of individuals - not the firm. I cannot bear a grudge against the whole practice because that would be generalising, in much the same way you have done in your message.

    Phone Cat Griffiths or Mark Kerswell if you need assurance that I've not posted on this topic before / not been posting too many messages (I suspect they have better things to do). Whilst your at it, perhaps you should also take a consistent stand in respect of Eversheds, Cobbetts, College of Law, DLA, DWF and Hill Dickinson (who have been subject of some much harsher comments in recent weeks).

    To those who have been posting. If you are doing this because you don't like the firm, please stop; this action is counterproductive (the story is top of the lists now, giving BD extra publicity). If you like the firm, please be less enthusiastic in your comments (and make fewer Chuck Norris references).

  • Dickinson Dees solicitors don't read law books - they stare them down until they tell them what they want to know.
