The need for environmentally sustainable practices has changed how the world does business, and Quarles & Brady has changed with it. We understand that the day-to-day operations of a law office can have an impact on the environment and, given our longstanding role as a leader in the field of environmental law, it’s only natural that we would embrace sustainability and manage our offices with a consideration for conservation.
We continuously assess the sustainability of our operations and pursue additional measures that ensure we are doing our part to maintain a clean environment.
Our Milwaukee office is in the midst of a three-year renovation of our office space, and sustainability has been top-of-mind during this process. Several tons of furniture and electronic items were donated for repurposing to 19 local nonprofits in the name of our Quarles Cares program, including Discovery World, the Milwaukee Center for Independence, Benjamin Franklin School, the Sojourner Family Peace Center, and Meta House.
The Washington, D.C. office is preparing to move to new offices. Prior to the decision to move, the office began an ongoing process to become nearly or completely paperless. The staff has been working diligently to scan thousands of pages of files in order to achieve this goal.
