I would use a construction adhesive, clamp and then nail following a nailing schedule similar to a 2x12 double LVL beam which off the top of my head might be something like 3 nails vertically every 2' switching sides every other row but it varies with size and spans.

Actually, with a 2x12 = do 4 nails vertically, each side - (& stagger each side).
