Chain | Cohn | Clark partners with Greater Bakersfield Chamber of Commerce
In 1945, the Bakersfield personal injury law firm Chain | Cohn | Clark first became a member of the Greater Bakersfield Chamber of Commerce.
After a short two-year break from membership, Chain | Cohn | Clark is proud to be a partner once again with one of the top chambers of commerce in the nation after joining this year.
“Like the Greater Bakersfield Chamber of Commerce, our law firm has been connected closely with the Bakersfield community since we were founded by Morris Chain in 1934,” said David K. Cohn, managing partner of CCS. “We’re proud to partner once again with longtime local group that, like us, is dedicated to making Bakersfield a better place.”
The 1,300-member Greater Bakersfield Chamber of Commerce is ranked in the top 10 of California chambers and in the top 100 chambers nationwide, according to the chamber. The nonprofit chamber works together with businesses to build a strong local economy, provides business-education opportunities, promotes community and business interests with government, and provides dynamic programs.
“The Chamber’s strength lies in its membership,” the chamber states on its website. “Members have varied interests and concerns, and underlying all is the common desire to improve the local business environment and enhance the socio-economic and cultural well-being of our community.”
The renewed partnership comes at a time when the Chain | Cohn | Clark is celebrating its 80-year anniversary. Eight years ago, Morris Chain set up his law practice in the Haberfelde Building in the heart of downtown Bakersfield. Since then, the law firm has provided legal assistance in the areas of personal injuries, car accidents, wrongful death and workers’ compensation*, among many other practices.
The CCS-GBCC partnership also comes at a time when the law firm is planning a move in 2015 to another building in the heart of historic downtown Bakersfield. Soon, Chain | Cohn | Clark will occupy a 30,000-square foot building on the southwest corner of 18th Street and Chester Avenue, a site that has been occupied by local businesses since the late 1800s.
