Senator Bond draws on his distinguished record of public service to represent clients on matters related to international trade, economic development, biotechnology, agriculture and transportation.

A former four-term United States Senator and two-term Governor from Missouri, he has been recognized nationally for his ability to build coalitions and effectively work with diverse stakeholders to achieve results.

Senator Bond has focused much of his energy on fostering business growth and economic development. During his time in the U.S. Senate, he became a recognized expert and leader on a wide range of subjects, including international trade and Asia; transportation and economic development; cyberintelligence and national security; and plant biotechnology. He was a senior member of the Senate Appropriations Committee and ranking member and Chairman of the subcommittees that fund our nation's housing and transportation programs. He served as the Vice Chairman of the Senate Select Intelligence Committee and was awarded the National Intelligence Distinguished Public Service Medal by General James Clapper, Director of National Security.

Prior to his career in the U.S. Senate, Bond served two terms as Governor of Missouri, from 1973 to 1977 (the youngest in the state's history at age 33) and from 1981 to 1985. Before being elected State Auditor in 1970, he was chief counsel of Missouri's Consumer Protection Division. In addition, he served as a judicial clerk to the Chief Judge of the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta after graduating first in his class from the University of Virginia Law School.
