Due to our wide array of experience and talent, we attract challenging and complex legal work that rivals or exceeds matters handled by firms in many major metropolitan areas. At Bond, nine figure deals are often handled by three or four primary corporate attorneys, giving all attorneys substantive, hands on experience and training. This allows us to control costs for clients and prepare attorneys at Bond to independently handle projects and client interactions from the earliest stages of their careers.
Despite our sophisticated practice and firm size, we are able to offer a work/life balance that is not available at large metropolitan firms. Bond attorneys are active in their communities, and we encourage these efforts.
A small sampling of matters that the firm recently handled is contained in the firm’s annual report, which is available here.
At Bond, we believe diversity within our ranks makes us better lawyers and a stronger law firm. We proudly value our racial, ethnic, cultural, social, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, religious and other personal differences. We are committed to the promotion of greater diversity throughout our communities and the legal profession. More information is available on our website.
Attorneys who join Bond laterally will experience a broad and varied client base, a stimulating and team-oriented environment, potential for growth, a high-tech infrastructure and professional programs to enhance your skills and professional development.
