Law firms routinely generate massive amounts of paperwork. Surveys indicate that on average an attorney uses up to 100,000 sheets of paper a year. This equates to over 1,000 pounds of paper per year per attorney. The environmental impact of this consumption means that the average attorney adds 4.5 tons of carbon dioxide equivalent gases into the environment every year.
It is our commitment at Bruce Stone to reduce our impact on the environment. We have actively taken measures to significantly reduce our use of paper. One of the ways we have achieved this is by developing an innovative online IP filing and case management system which virtually eliminates paper consumption. We have made this service available to our clients and affiliate firms in order to reduce paper consumption. Not only is it the right thing to do, it results in speed and efficiency for our clients.
Changing the way a law firm operates can be hard, but we are encouraging our affiliates to follow in our footsteps. We at Bruce Stone believe that reducing paper consumption can make a tremendous impact on the environment today. Because we believe so strongly in this cause, we offer substantially reduced fees to our affiliates that choose to utilize our free IP filing and case management system.
After reviewing our services, we invite you to join us in changing the way in which law firms can help their clients while protecting the environment.
