Lazer, Aptheker, Rosella & Yedid is pleased to announce that, effective June 1, 2022, the firm will combine with Bond, Schoeneck & King, a full service law firm founded in 1897 resulting in fifteen offices in five states and a combined 275 lawyers.
Kevin Bernstein, chair of Bond’s management committee, said “Bond and Lazer have discussed combining on and off over several years. Bond and Lazer are like-minded firms and together we can offer a greater breadth of quality legal services to both client bases. With the addition of their 23 lawyers, working in complementary practices, Bond is now a top full-service law firm on Long Island with 40 attorneys and offices in Melville and Garden City.”
Ralph Rosella, managing partner for Lazer, commented, “Our culture is a great fit with Bond’s, making this combination something that our attorneys are looking forward to. We have referred services to Bond over the years in practice areas that we didn’t offer and know many of the lawyers professionally and personally. This will be beneficial to our clients, and we’re excited to be part of a firm that can offer a broader array of legal services and excellent client service to help them realize their objectives.”
Founded in 1987, Lazer, Aptheker, Rosella & Yedid began as a small commercial litigation firm. Since its founding, it added services in real estate conveyance, financing and leasing; general business and corporate law; mergers and acquisitions; debtors’ and creditors’ rights; tax; trust and estate; and banking litigation.
Bond was founded in 1897 and has 250 lawyers serving individuals, companies, nonprofits and public sector entities in a broad range of practice areas.
