Brook Bond, PB&L’s Boise office managing shareholder said, “GBS’s depth of trial experience in matters throughout the Western region is impressive and will specifically enhance PB&L’s extensive range of specialization in complex litigation. GBS has promoted a culture that places high value on long-term client relationships, as has Parsons Behle & Latimer. This is a natural fit for all of us.”
