“We are thrilled to welcome our new Kramer & Olsen colleagues,” said BPM CEO Jim Wallace in a statement. “Kramer & Olsen’s commitment to client service excellence aligns perfectly with our BPM1 service model – together the combined firm will bring enhanced career opportunities to our people and greater access to services for our clients.”
