Our regional heritage and local knowledge — combined with a transatlantic outlook — generate the insights capable of unlocking more opportunities for our clients.
With 24 offices on both sides of the Atlantic, we provide the breadth of legal experience and services to meet our clients’ needs without losing the intimacy of being connected to our different communities.
These strong local and regional ties enable us to remain close to our clients and the issues they care about.
With teams located across the US and the UK, and networks and relationships around the world, we bring an international perspective and extended jurisdictional reach to a wide range of client needs — a powerful combination that presents a compelling alternative to other firms.
It all adds up to hands-on, switched-on lawyers and professionals with the ability to deliver intelligent, grounded and pragmatic advice that our clients need to feel confident and succeed at home, across the Atlantic and around the world.
Integrity is a fundamental principle in everything we do, and this is articulated and incorporated into our approach to corporate social responsibility.
We take our corporate social responsibility as seriously as the quality of our legal advice, and we care about the impact of our actions.
Through partnerships with charities, community projects and our own initiatives, we are determined to play a strong role in creating better places to live, work and do business.
We are actively involved in our communities to help our neighbors and to share our legal and business skills to benefit others. Some of the charities we support include:
- United Way
- American Heart Association

Womble Bond Dickinson has a long history of providing community service dating back to its beginnings in the late 1800s. Consistent with the firm’s long term commitment to community service, we have an active Pro Bono program in each of our offices. The firm encourages its attorneys to fulfill their Pro Bono commitment by providing legal services to persons of limited means or to organizations whose purpose is to assist persons of limited means. In addition to Pro Bono work, many of our lawyers continue to be involved in a multitude of community service projects.
At the core of our Pro Bono program is the belief that law firms such as ours should be at the forefront of increasing access to legal services for the underprivileged. Not only does Pro Bono work provide a valuable public service, but it contributes to the personal and professional development of our attorneys. We are working to enhance the firm’s Pro Bono commitment and to create an atmosphere in which many of our lawyers will meet or exceed the Pro Bono goals set by the ABA and our local bar associations. The firm has established a Pro Bono Committee to monitor the firm’s progress in reaching its Pro Bono goals and to ensure proper supervision and administration of the Pro Bono program.
