Sustainable Business & Social Enterprise
Many businesses are looking for ways to be sustainable in order to meet the needs of the present without compromising the needs of future generations. These businesses include Social Enterprise, Green Technologies, Green Construction/Transportation, Smart Development and Responsible Finance. Principles important to sustainable businesses include Green Business Practices, Responsible Governance and Corporate Responsibility, and Responsible Branding and Promotion.
Your mission matters. Clients who seek to "do well by doing good" by traversing the landscape of social enterprise need counsel that understands the complex issues in this area - counsel that knows how to understand and help socially conscious entrepreneurs accomplish their goals. We get that.
Our lawyers working with social enterprises offer business and exempt organization experience with a deep understanding of the distinct needs and concerns of socially responsible business ventures. Our attorneys are nimble, creative, masters at developing solutions and driven by the goal of helping sustainable entrepreneurs and investors succeed. We won't tell you what you can't do - we'll tell you how you can do it. Whether it's using a for-benefit structure, a nonprofit structure or a joint venture of both benefit and exempt organizations, we can help you see what is possible to preserve your social mission while developing a revenue-producing business model.
At Maslon we champion our clients' concerns, becoming experts on their businesses and providing high-quality, personalized service. It's the critical component that makes our firm unique and helps our clients succeed.
