Square One Law hails ‘incredible’ B Corp success

A commercial law firm is celebrating after securing an esteemed accolade.

Square One Law has achieved B Corp status.

The title is handed to organisations meeting high standards of verified performance, accountability and transparency across areas such as employee benefits, charitable giving and supply chain practice.

Square One Law’s inclusion means it joins the likes of The Body Shop, Patagonia and Innocent Drinks on the B Corp list.

The company, which has offices in Newcastle, Darlington and Leeds, achieved an overall score of 93 during assessment, a figure that put it well above the 80 pass mark score.

It also meant the business was among the top ten ranked UK law firms.

Gill Hunter, managing partner, said: “We have spent some time reassessing our future and investing in improving our impact on our clients, our people, our communities and our planet.

“So, to have achieved such a high B Corp ranking on our first time of applying, is absolutely brilliant.

“The ranking not only puts us among the top ten UK law firms, but it also places us alongside some of the world’s largest and most responsible businesses.

“It is an incredible achievement for everyone associated with the firm.

“We don’t see becoming a B Corp as simply a box-ticking exercise, we pursued this certification because we genuinely believe in doing the right thing.”
