US/UK: Womble Carlyle-Bond Dickinson merger creates £340m law firm

 |  November 1, 2017

Newcastle law firm Bond Dickinson’s merger with US firm Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice has officially gone live in a move that has created one of the world’s top 100 biggest law firms.

Womble Bond Dickinson, as the business is now known, has an annual turnover of £340 million (US$410 million), and more than 1,000 lawyers working out of 24 offices across the UK and US.

The transatlantic merger was originally announced in June, a year after the two firms revealed they had struck a strategic alliance to promote collaboration between the businesses.

The merger has allowed Bond Dickinson to increase its overseas reach in a number of regions with similar economies to the North East of England, such as the Carolinas, which have a strong history of manufacturing.
