Dickinson Dees senior partner John Marshall, who will hold a senior management position at Bond Dickinson, said: “Both Dickinson Dees and Bond Pearce already have their trainee intakes confirmed for 2013 and 2014. We don’t anticipate these being affected by the merger.
“Looking ahead, Bond Dickinson will review the next trainee intake in line with the needs of the business and, if anything, we envisage that the number of seats available will increase.”
Dickinson Dees managing partner Jonathan Blair will be managing partner of the combined firm while Bond Pearce chairman Nick Page will be its chairman. Like Marshall, Bond Pearce managing partner Victor Tettmar will serve on the senior management team at Bond Dickinson.
Dickinson Dees posted a significantly increased trainee retention rate last year (26 July 2012).
