B&D has been involved in LFSN since its inception, and B&D attorneys were active in the development of LFSN’s American Legal Industry Sustainability Standard (ALISS), a web-based tool designed to help law offices assess and improve their sustainability programs. This year B&D received an ALISS Gold ranking, reflecting its strong sustainability achievements and ongoing efforts.

We know he will be an excellent leader as the Law Firm Sustainability Network advances to its next stage of evolution. His appreciation and thoughtfulness for environmental stewardship will help LFSN’s mission to advance sustainability within the legal industry.
