At Barakat Law, we are committed to reducing our impact on the environment. Barakat Law has taken measures to reduce the carbon footprint of our firm and the carbon footprint of our clients and employees.
In an effort to reduce carbon emissions we offer client meetings via GoToMeeting and court appearances over the phone.
Our office has been paperless for over 10 years. We prepare for hearings and trials with tablets rather than binders. We prohibited all single use plastics, and implemented an extensive recycling program for those paper, plastic and other recyclable items we do use.
Our employees are also incentivized for their efforts in living a green life. We offer a bicycle credit to employees seeking to commute in an environmentally friendly way. We also provide all employees a transportation stipend which can be used for public transportation and electric scooter rental.
In 2019 Barakat Law was honored to be awarded Green Business Bronze Certification from the City of Coral Gables and to receive the Diamond Awards from The Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce as a sustainable business.
