Environmental, Social and Governance

Our commitment to sustainability shows in our daily business and through our achievements. All of our offices are green certified for our sustainability efforts, and we’re a certified B Corp with several LEED® Accredited professionals on our team with access to resources to help evaluate and improve our sustainability practices. 

With the help of these individuals, we formed an internal committee to implement green policies and teach us how going green can be good for our business and our communities.

Forward-looking Values

We like to break the mold. We don’t just talk about innovative ways of working: we implement them through modern and flexible experiences that empower our attorneys to deliver quality work above and beyond expectations. Even prior to the pandemic, our dynamic workforce initiative offered our attorneys flexibility and resources, such as a robust home office set-up, to work remotely. The initiative evolved into an agile model, scaling and evolving as a firm, based on extensive feedback and communication shared and gathered from our employees. We listen, grow, and move forward—together.
