He also advises corporate and institutional clients in copyright and trademark infringement matters, commercial contract disputes, construction and insurance matters, and real estate transactions. Bundick received his J.D. from Washington University in St. Louis School of Law and his B.B.A. from Baylor University.

Because of professionals like these throughout the firm, we have been able to remain committed to unmatched coverage of the United States. We also have a highly focused international expansion based on excellence and strength rather than simply geographical spread that in itself adds no value to our clients and which could dilute our quality, culture, and financial condition,” said Richard A. Rosenbaum, Greenberg Traurig’s CEO.
