His practice grew rapidly in downtown Syracuse, and in 1908 he was joined by Edward Schoeneck. Clarence R. King joined them in 1913, and soon thereafter, “Bond, Schoeneck & King” became the unchanging name of the firm.

The firm comprises 25 practice areas and 10 industry groups, that include among others Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation, Environmental and Energy, Intellectual Property and Technology, Labor and Employment Law, Mergers and Acquisitions, Agribusiness, Exempt Organizations, Higher Education, Collegiate Sports and Real Estate Development and Construction.
