MBA and CLF honor four law firms for exemplary leadership in greening the practice of law

Lawyers Eco-Challenge well received by legal community, with nearly 60 firms and solo practitioners signing pledge

On May 14, the Massachusetts Bar Association and its Lawyers Eco-Challenge partner, the Conservation Law Foundation, honored four law firms for exemplary leadership in greening the practice of law. The honors took place at the closing reception following the House of Delegates meeting at the Salem Waterfront Hotel.

“Now, more than ever, it is necessary for lawyers to become sustainability leaders. We hope the efforts of our Eco-Challenge pledge partners continue to inspire changes throughout the legal community and the business world at large,” said MBA President David W. White Jr. as he welcomed the guests of honor at the reception.

CLF President Philip Warburg offered words of thanks to the honorees and all the Eco-Challenge pledge partners. “Whether they have worked to reduce energy use, put an end to the massive amount of paper we use, or encouraged employee participation by encouraging public transit and commuting choices, the firms being recognized today — and all the other participating firms — are setting a true example for the rest of the business and legal community in Massachusetts,” said Warburg, who was joined at the event by CLF Staff Attorney Susan Reid, who co-chairs the MBA Energy and Environment Task Force.

Honored firms included:

  • Borchers, Ware & Guglielmo, Medway;
  • Milton, Laurence & Dixon, Worcester;
  • McRoberts, Roberts & Rainer LLP, Boston; and
  • Modern Times Legal, Cambridge.
