Buttonwood Law Corporation

The Buttonwood Tree

The Buttonwood Agreement, which took place on May 17, 1792, started the New York Stock & Exchange Board. This agreement was signed by 24 stock brokers outside of 68 Wall Street New York under a buttonwood tree. The organization drafted its constitution on March 8th, 1817, and named itself the "New York Stock & Exchange Board". In 1863, this name was shortened to its modern form, "New York Stock Exchange".

We chose this name for our company because we recognize that we stand on the shoulders of giants. Just as the New York Stock Exchange had its humble beginnings under a buttonwood tree, all great businesses have started with an idea. It is this entrepreneurial spirit that we applaud. We acknowledge that we would not be here without the vision and hard work of our clients, entrepreneurs who have the imagination to dream, the willingness to risk, and the tenacity to build.
