A brief history of The Bunker Law Group.
This represents the opening entry in my blog associated with my new firm, The Bunker Law Group, PLLC. By way of introduction, I am Ben Bunker, the founding attorney for the firm. I felt that my first blog entry should provide you with a little more background than what you can find elsewhere on my site. Subsequent entries will discuss various topics related to small business start-up and operation.
I am a first generation attorney, originally born and raised in southern California. My undergraduate degree was from Brigham Young University. While there, I had a couple of roommates who were avid entrepreneurs. They were constantly developing new business plans, turning them into new businesses. I got to participate first-hand in the start-up of numerous new businesses.
After law school, I clerked for a solo practitioner in California who had been a lawyer longer than I had been alive. He was a jack-of-all-trades attorney, who practiced in just about every area imaginable. One area he did a lot of work in was small business development. As his clerk, I was integrally involved in forming these entities for his clients and providing services once they were operational. This only furthered my interest in working with small businesses.
I started practicing law in Nevada in the spring of 2006 where I worked for a venerable litigation defense firm. I have worked in litigation (including business litigation) for a majority of my career, until I switched to in-house counsel work. This included working for a major commercial real-estate company and some related publicly traded companies, including a major start-up company that was focusing on e-commerce/marketing. This provided the final experience for me to finally pursue my goal of running my own practice to help new small business owners and current business owners by providing them with their own “in-house” counsel.
