Bond, Schoeneck and King names Pittsford resident member

Pittsford resident Katherine McClung was named member at Bond, Schoeneck and King in Rochester.
She is an employment law attorney who represents employers in many types of matters, including wage and hour issues and employment discrimination claims.
“I really enjoy practicing employment law,” McClung said. “I handle a wide variety of matters from helping an employer deal with a challenging employee to defending employers in multimillion dollar class action lawsuits.”
McClung grew up in Syracuse and attended University of Rochester wanting to be an economics professor. However, her experience on the UR debate team spurred an interest in law, and she went on to New York University for her law degree. After working in New York City at Skadden Arps Slate Meagher and Flom, she moved back to upstate New York, settling in Pittsford with her husband and twins.
She accepted a position at Bond in 2013. Bond is a law firm with 265 lawyers serving individuals, companies and public sector entities in a broad range of practice areas with offices across New York state. McClung credits her mom, Jeanne McClung, of Canandaigua, and Judge Judith Kaye as her role models.
“My mom is brilliant and always encouraged me to pursue my passions. Judge Kaye really paved the way for women in the legal profession, and I learned so much working with her at Skadden Arps,” McClung said. “Thanks to women like Judge Kaye, I never felt that being a woman had any negative impact on my career, especially at Bond. In the last two years, Bond has promoted nine attorneys to the membership — seven of whom are women.”
