Seattle

The realities of escalating resource demand, environmental degradation and climate change are all dramatically transforming the way many businesses make decisions and conduct operations. We believe law firms should join their clients in this effort. Our attorneys work with clients to not only develop innovative solutions to environmental challenges, but also to think of environmental stewardship as their own personal responsibility. Understanding what sustainability involves will help us better counsel our clients about the steps they need to take.

We believe in encouraging environmentally sustainable practices - in ways both big and small. This means supporting the growth of the cleantech and renewable energy industries through our legal work and also making simple changes firmwide that help minimize our ecological impact.

We are committed to cultivating positive habits among our attorneys and staff - we believe in our collective power to make a difference. We started forming local “green teams” in our offices in 1991. In 2008 we created a formal firmwide green team, comprising both attorneys and staff, to promote a dialogue of awareness and to challenge one another to “reduce, then recycle.”

Our Seattle office, the firm’s largest, is located at 1201 Third Avenue in downtown Seattle, a 55-story office tower that has received Platinum certification under the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Existing Buildings (LEED-EB).
