Firm Details

Founded in 2016 by two former BigLaw partners, Lawrence & Bundy’s value proposition is simple: to combine the sophistication, depth, and rigor of a large law firm with a nimble and agile client experience. Lawrence & Bundy is a litigation firm with a comprehensive breadth of experience representing and advising clients across a wide spectrum of industries. The foundation of our firm’s success is excellent client service, starting with our deep investment in the attorney-client relationship. We devote extensive time and resources to learning our clients’ problems and then addressing their challenges with real-world solutions.  The L&B advantage is a client-centric, solutions-based, lean staffing model that leverages alternative fee arrangements and business acumen.

Our firm has ten practicing lawyers, eight in our Atlanta office, and two attorneys in our metropolitan Washington D.C. office.  Our lawyers have the pedigree one expects from large law firms and have been recognized for their accomplishments.  We have tried cases in federal and state courts throughout the nation and have appeared before the U.S. Supreme Court and all 13 U.S. Courts of Appeals. We also have extensive experience before federal and state administrative agencies and arbitration panels, including international arbitration forums.  

We are keenly aware of the frustration that business clients experience in litigation—sometimes with their lawyers—and believe that we offer a different, client-focused approach.  Here’s how we handle matters:

We Define Objectives at the Outset But Are Prepared to Re-evaluate. We urge clients to define, at the outset of a case, what a “win” would be, with attention to litigation’s collateral consequences. Because new facts often emerge during litigation, we encourage clients to regularly reassess objectives and case valuations.

We Provide Clients With Their Desired Work Product. Some clients feel they are trapped on a runaway train once they hire a law firm. We believe that listening is especially important when it comes to delivering what the client needs. Most often, however, the client is seeking well-founded advice and analysis, concisely and efficiently delivered, and tailored to the circumstances. We discuss with clients the range of options and costs before significant research is undertaken.

We Provide Preventive Counseling to Help Reduce Cost and Exposure.  The adversary process often sheds light on structural or business practice risks that are difficult to foresee. An important element of our service to clients is to point out ways to lower the risks of future litigation.

We Put Cooperation and Teamwork First. Cooperation and teamwork are imperative for success and cost-effectiveness when handling one-dimensional cases as well as national, multi-defendant litigation. Outside counsel should check their egos and competitive instincts at the door for the success of the common enterprise and always work cooperatively with their clients. We have been doing this for a long time, and our culture and approach make the difference for our clients.
