About Dentons Bingham Greenebaum
Effective January 2020, Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP merged with Dentons.
Based in Indianapolis, with six offices across Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio, Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP is a full-service firm that has had an eye on its clients’ business prospects for over a century.
History is Made of Mergers
One of the firms that eventually became Bingham Greenebaum Doll was founded in 1914 as the solo practice of James E. Bingham in Indianapolis. The other, Greenebaum and Barnett, was opened in Louisville, KY, in 1952. Each firm underwent a series of mergers and name changes, the most important of which occurred in 2012, resulting in the firm’s current form. The merger was described as a “true merger”—one that acknowledges the successes of its predecessors. On October 8, 2019, Bingham Greenebaum Doll (BGD) announced that the firm is combining with Dentons. The merger is expected to launch in January 2020.
Your Business Is My Business
BGD’s practice covers the full scope of business law, from transactional and litigation matters to government-related services. Its core practice areas include banking and financial services, business litigation, estate planning, energy, and real estate, among others. Their clients are representative of a variety of industries, including banking, education, gaming, insurance, manufacturing, and tobacco/vapor products.

As diversity and inclusion becomes a growing concern in the legal field, Bingham Greenebaum Doll has taken its own approach to diversity seriously.

The Women’s Forum supports the firm’s female attorneys, as well as women clients and business owners through events and service opportunities meant to foster professional relationships, mentoring, and leadership. More recently, in 2017, the firm launched its Diversity Scholars program, including a summer associate position and stipend.
