Bingham Greenebaum Doll featured in the Business Lexington

On Feb. 1, Bingham Greenebaum Doll was featured in Business Lexington about the recent merger with legacy firms Bingham McHale and Greenebaum Doll & McDonald. Bingham Greenebaum Doll co-chairman Phil Scott and Lexington Managing Partner Carolyn Brown were interviewed by Business Lexington’s Tom Martin about the decision for both firms to merge.  An excerpt of the interview follows. 

“TM (Tom Martin): In recent years, we have seen a number of law firm mergers in the region. Why did this move make sense for Greenebaum?”

“PS (Phil Scott): It made sense that we would have the depth, the experience, the talent that is necessary to handle the business affairs of our clients…It's not unlike a football team in many respects: The more good players that I have as a coach, the better chance I have to field a winning team on behalf of our clients.”

Martin touched on topics regarding the strengths of each legacy firm, the similarity between office culture and goals, as well as the state of the legal industry today with new technology and a declining economy.

“TM: Carolyn Brown, what is the lay of the land out there for prospective law school grads? What does it look like on the entry level these days?”

“CB (Carolyn Brown): Well, that's a subject near and dear to my heart, considering I have a son who is a first-year law student. My thought on that is it's challenging. If you want to be assured of employment, you really need to work hard and be at the top of your class, and that's exactly what I've told my son, because I think it is a challenging time for graduating lawyers to find positions. There are opportunities out there, but it's just much tougher than it used to be, and with the economy the way it is, I don't see that turning around in any real short-term period.”
