People, Planet, Profit + Purpose

At Kickstart Law, we are a new kind of law firm for a changing world.


We believe that the practice and business of law can, and should, integrate the quadruple bottom line: "People, Planet, Profit and Purpose".   


Our quest is to embody B Lab's “Declaration of Interdependence,” which states:

  • That we must be the change we seek in the world.

  • That all business ought to be conducted as if people and place mattered.

  • That, through their products, practices, and profits, businesses should aspire to do no harm and benefit all.

  • To do so requires that we act with the understanding that we are dependent upon another and thus responsible for each other and future generations.
