It is with profound sadness that we mark the recent passing of Boughton Law Shareholder, James Baird. With a distinguished legal career spanning 41 years, Jim’s contribution to the legal community and his tireless work in service of clients was significant. His character left an indelible impression on the countless lawyers and staff he worked with over many decades. From the entire team at Boughton Law and the extended legal community, thank you, Jim.
