Legal advice for certifying as a B Corp

As the first UK law firm to certify as a B Corp, we’ve not only been through the process ourselves, we’re also regularly advising businesses on how to certify and what it really means in practice.

We designed the legal requirements for UK B Corps and, as a B Corp, we understand what it means from the inside. So we are uniquely placed to advise on the legal process and its implications.

We use our B Corp values and 6 years of experience within the community to help companies increase their impact through tailored legal advice and services across our entire partnership. We have B Corp friendly contract clauses, resources and advice around governance, commercial contracts (including sustainable supply chains), real estate, employment and EDI, which we would expect to improve a company’s BIA score.

We also provide tailored and bespoke advice to meet your specific business requirements. And we are happy to be flexible on your payments, if that helps.

Plus we have regular briefings and updates on all things B Corp, so we are well placed to keep you up to speed on what you need to know.

If you would like to discuss your requirements please don’t hesitate to get in touch at: [email protected]
