  • This is great news and well done to DD. A fantastic strategic move that will catapult DD into the top flight of regional powerhouses making it the undisputed premier law firm in Newcastle upon Tyne and Teeside. Congratulations to Mr Blair and Mr Marshal for great leadership and having the courage and vision to lead this sleeping giant of a law firm out of its slumber and into the modern professional advisery world. We know some within the ranks will not be happy at such a significant shakeup but very best wishes from all of us at Ward Hadaway.

  • "Our merger.....will give us the strength in depth and sector insight to support our clients’ growth plans" What a load of meaningless gobbledegook? What on earth does that mean exactly? This is what Dibb Lupton Alsopp, Booth & Co and other regional firms were bleeting on about 15 years ago. Who was it that suddenly sounded an alarm at DD?

  • Let's not forget that in the 1990s Dickinson Dees was a top 30 law firm.
    It's (largely) the same people who today are toasting the merger, who oversaw the firm fall to a paltry 58th place.
    I really hope I'm proved wrong, but I predict that from 1 May 2013, Bond Dickinson will begin a slow decline down the UK rankings.

  • I think this is good news. I own a fleet of high tech ice cream vans and we have just expanded into Wallsend. If we decide to expand into Bristol I would definitely use this company.

  • I think it's a real shame that Dixon Dees will no longer be identified with the North East and Middlesborough. It is a great brand and synonomous prestige, quality, integrity.

  • ...Always a load of work putting deals together and always important to think that real people affected so hopefully jobs assured too...but focus on top table roles smacks of expediency not strategy...not so much ground-breaking as a bit of hoe-ing

  • Pleased to see the partners decide to stop using the name Dickinson Dees. For the last few years it has carried negative connotations, especially in the North East. Maybe now they'll also ditch the absurd "Leading law firm" tag?
