Thomas Keleher Rejoins Bond, Schoeneck & King

January 3, 2023

Bond, Schoeneck & King is pleased to announce that Thomas D. Keleher has rejoined the firm’s litigation practice in its Saratoga office as of counsel. Keleher retired from Bond as a member in 2017 after working for the firm for nearly 40 years.

“While I certainly enjoyed many aspects of retirement, I realized that I missed the law, missed working with other attorneys and my clients; and that I still had something to offer to Bond, especially mentoring younger attorneys. I recently moved to Saratoga to be closer to my children and grandchildren and thought that this would be a perfect opportunity to do work that I enjoy, help clients and still be readily available to my family.”

Keleher is a Fellow in the prestigious American College of Trial Lawyers. He is one of the few attorneys in New York who has handled a litigated matter in every county in the state. Additionally, Keleher formerly served as chair of Bond's litigation department and as a member of the firm's management and compensation committees.

In addition to litigating cases, Keleher will focus on providing mediation/arbitration services across New York State, acting as a mediator and/or arbitrator for all types of litigation matters, but concentrating on personal injury, product liability and construction cases. He brings decades of experience and has established a reputation as a fair and knowledgeable mediator.

According to Kevin Bernstein, chair of Bond’s management committee, “Tom has a wealth of knowledge and experience. When he approached us with the idea of returning to Bond, we jumped at it. He will work with attorneys throughout the firm on litigation strategy and trial work and also work with younger associates to help them learn the litigation process. We are happy to welcome Tom back.”

Keleher is a graduate of Albany Law School of Union University (1979) and the State University of New York at Plattsburgh (1974).

Bond, Schoeneck & King PLLC is a law firm with 275 lawyers serving individuals, companies, nonprofits and public sector entities in a broad range of practice areas. Bond has ten offices in New York State as well as locations in Florida, Kansas, Massachusetts and New Jersey.
