Creating a Mission Driven Law Practice

Jonathan KlavensAfter a brief summer hiatus, Counsel to Counsel is back!  In my latest episode, I speak with Jon Klavens of Klavens Law Group about how he has built a mission driven law practice.  Jon is a fellow alum of Northeastern University School of Law.  Like many NUSL students, Jon came to the school with a strong interest in the public interest. After a prestigious clerkship and a long stint at the Boston firm Goodwin Procter, Jon decided he wanted to have more impact on the world.  He didn’t want to work for a non-profit so he found a way to serve the public good by representing companies involved in clean energy, clean technology, resource recovery, sustainable agriculture and food ventures, and social enterprise.  You can hear the episode wherever you get your podcasts.  Stay tuned for many other interesting interviews throughout the Fall.
