REFRESHINGLY DIFFERENT

Manifesto

We see the world as it could be. We resolve to make change happen. Not content to wait for better times, we strive to lay foundations now. We know that a brighter future is built by the adventurers, people like you and me, who are on the ground charting new territory, motivated by passion and committed to execution.

We believe in the power of the marketplace to generate positive social and environmental change. We believe that the best solutions to complex challenges create long-term prosperity, not only financial but also social and environmental.

We are in this together.

Who we work with.

We work with social entrepreneurs—people creating smart solutions to social and environmental problems. Our clients include non-profits and for-profits as well as benefit corporations and B Corps.

How we work.

The standard law firm business model has not changed in centuries. It’s high time for a little disruption. We are disrupting law in two primary ways: transparent pricing and an innovative business model. Some call it “Lean Law”, we just call it smart.

Our origin story.

In 2007 Kyle Westaway co-founded a social enterprise with some friends. They worked with great lawyers, but the traditional law firm did not know how to meet their specific needs. Kyle searched high and low for a social enterprise firm and couldn’t find one. So he started one: a law firm by social entrepreneurs for social entrepreneurs. The team has grown since then, but the passion for providing quality counsel to social enterprise is as strong as ever.

A little bit about Kyle.

Kyle Westaway is the founder and Managing Partner of Westaway. He’s the author of Profit & Purpose and writes on social innovation and startups. Kyle is a Lecturer on Law at Harvard Law School where he co-teaches a course on social entrepreneurship. Every Saturday morning he sends out the Weekend Briefing, an email on how innovation is impacting society.
