Bond Opens Westchester Office
October 8, 2021
(White Plains, NY): Bond, Schoeneck & King is pleased to announce the opening of an office in Westchester County, making this the firm’s 13th office overall, and ninth in New York State. The addition of a Westchester office was part of the firm’s strategic plan to have a presence in all major metropolitan areas across the state. The office will be located at 10 Bank Street in downtown White Plains’ newest office building.
According to Kevin Bernstein, the firm’s managing member, “It’s long been a part of Bond’s vision to have a statewide physical presence that enables us to represent clients – with “boots on the ground” – from Long Island and New York City to all points north and west.”
Louis DiLorenzo, who will be the Westchester office managing member, added: “The missing piece to the firm’s strategic plan was an office that would allow for in-person, cost-effective client contact from Westchester up the corridor through Rockland, Putnam, Dutchess and Ulster counties to Albany where we have an office. A presence in Westchester was the linchpin.” The addition of the Westchester office is an important component of serving the firm’s existing downstate client base, according to DiLorenzo, who will also continue to serve as co-managing member of Bond’s New York City office. DiLorenzo points out that in April, when the well-known labor and employment law boutique, Putney Twombly, combined with Bond in New York City, “the firm needed to expand its footprint in New York City’s midtown or go elsewhere. It seemed simple, the somewhere else should be where many Bond clients are located and several of our attorneys reside, which is Westchester County.”
The Westchester office will be staffed with eight attorneys, as well as many other attorneys serving our Westchester clients. Their practices include labor and employment, higher education, school law and municipalities, among others. The office will service Bond’s already significant client base in Westchester County, including school districts, colleges and libraries, municipalities, long term care and health facilities and numerous businesses. It will also be one of the only full-service law firms in Westchester County with a vast resource of legal professionals across the state, further enhancing the services it can bring to these local entities. In addition to attorneys, the office will have two support staff.
Bond, Schoeneck & King PLLC is a law firm with 250 lawyers serving individuals, companies, nonprofits and public sector entities in a broad range of practice areas. With its Westchester office, Bond has nine offices in New York State as well as offices in Boston, Kansas City, Naples, Florida, and Red Bank, New Jersey.
