PDF Article PDF

We are excited to announce that Fast Company just recognized the 2012 passage of California benefit corporation legislation as one of the 20 defining 'Moments that Matter' of the last 20 years. Hanson Bridgett partner, Jonathan Storper chaired the legal working group which drafted and advocated for benefit corporation legislation in California.

A benefit corporation is a new class of for profit corporation and the first that is required to create a material positive impact on society and the environment and to meet higher standards of accountability and transparency in addition to creating shareholder value. We are also proud to say that Hanson Bridgett was the first law firm to become a certified B corporation.

Hanson Bridgett has a leading national Benefit Corporations practice and our attorneys have helped many clients become Benefit Corporations.
