National, Local Media Cover Announcement of Bingham Greenebaum Doll’s Combination with Dentons, Cohen & Grigsby to Create US’ First National Law Firm

10.21.2019

Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP is excited about its combination with Dentons and Cohen & Grigsby in Pittsburgh to form the first U.S. national law firm in early 2020. This deal means BGD can connect its clients to a national and global platform, and seamlessly offer legal services nearly anywhere in the world.

There is a growing need among BGD’s clients for cross-jurisdictional work. By collaborating with Dentons’ partners around the world, this combination eliminates the time and risk involved for BGD attorneys to source talent.

The combined firm will have a headcount of nearly 1,100 lawyers, making it the sixth largest law firm in the U.S. Globally, Dentons has more than 10,000 attorneys in 70 countries around the world.

BGD is thankful to the local and national media that covered the Oct. 7 announcement of the combination, called “Golden Spike” in honor of the celebratory railroad spike that completed the first transcontinental railroad in the U.S.
