  • Our highest honor is receiving client referrals, which is the lifeline of our firm
    “There’s a unique sense of a family atmosphere here. The attorneys, paralegals and staff work together as a team to support our clients. We do not have minimum billing hour requirements, but rather are all responsible for providing our clients with the highest quality of legal services. Our highest honor is receiving client referrals, which is the lifeline of our firm.”
    – Member of BC&B
  • Critical in the overall success
    "BCB's knowledge of all facets of this real estate transaction, particularly regarding the sophisticated financing package, was critical in the overall success of this deal."
    – Partner of Real Estate Investment Firm
  • Quality of legal work and dedication
    "There is no doubt in my mind that the size of this estate, and the distribution to the general unsecured creditors, would be significantly smaller without [BCB's] perseverance, the quality of legal work and dedication to this case."
    – Bankruptcy Trustee
  • Impressed with the efficiency and professionalism
    “I originally met and worked with these attorneys when they represented the seller of a business I was acquiring. I was so impressed with the efficiency and professionalism they brought to a complex transaction that I sought their counsel after the completion of the acquisition. They have been invaluable to me in the transition, helping steer me through the minefield of federal and state regulations, the bureaucracy of the taxing authorities, and just dealing with everyday issues with customers, vendors and employees. I am lucky to have them as a part of my team.”
    – Owner and President of a Mid-Sized St. Louis Company
  • Pleased and impressed with the service
    “I was both pleased and impressed with the service and result I received from the firm. The attorneys understood my and my family’s particular personal and business succession needs, prepared the documents on time and explained them to me in a way I could easily understand.”
    – Founder, Family Owned Business
  • Instrumental in working with us
    “In our industry, the ability to attract and retain talented employees is key to our success. The firm has been instrumental in working with us to design executive compensation packages that appeal to our key employees by providing them with incentives to assist in our growth while allowing us the resources to meet our company’s obligations.”
    – President, Leading St. Louis Advertising and Public Relations Firm
  • The quality of their work is unsurpassed
    “BC&B has been with us since inception and is an essential member of our corporate team. Previously, as Executive Vice-President of another company, I had worked with some of the largest St. Louis law firms. In fact, that is where I began my relationship with some of BCB’s current attorneys. When we started our new business venture, I immediately sought out the representation of BCB. The quality of their work is unsurpassed, and BCB’s attorneys have always provided us with expert counseling and personal attention in the most timely and efficient manner. I think what sets them apart from other law firms is their ability to understand our business objectives and provide innovative solutions to our legal issues which fit within our business model.”
    – President of one of the Fastest Growing Technology Companies in St. Louis
  • Keen ability to analyze proposed loan structures
    “BC&B attorneys have a keen ability to analyze proposed loan structures to protect our interests, while at the same time understanding what terms are vital to the success of our borrowers. Their attorneys work closely with our loan officers and provide us with the highest quality of work. Their efficiency, sensitivity, timeliness and reasonable costs have enabled us to strengthen client relationships which we would otherwise be unlikely to maintain.”
    – Assistant General Counsel of one of the Nation’s Largest Financial Institutions
  • Diplomatic problem solvers
    “In addition to the quality of BCB's representation always being as high as any firm with which I have worked, they have the unique ability to adapt between being extremely aggressive and very diplomatic problem solvers, depending upon the different issues of each case.”
    – President of a National Real Estate Brokerage Firm
  • Their advice and counseling are invaluable
    “The firm’s attorneys have a great understanding of our business and the legal developments affecting our industry. Their advice and counseling are invaluable. They always have creative and well-reasoned solutions to the legal challenges we face. They have the unique ability to fully understand our producers’ businesses as well as our own, and are able to develop innovative ideas to attract and retain such independent agents. Their representation has greatly assisted our company in being recognized as the insurance carrier of choice in a highly competitive market place.”
    – Senior Vice President of Sales of a National Insurance Company
