Griffin Legal was one of the first firms in Canberra to go (nearly) paperless, commencing in 2011. Being a (nearly) paperless firm means reducing our carbon footprint, resources for printing and maintaining digital filing systems. This environmental decision allowed us to achieve better practice efficiency and effective file management.
In 2013 Griffin Legal was registered as an accredited member of the ACT Government ACTSmart Business Recycling Program.
Griffin Legal has committed to the ACT Government’s Healthier Work Program. We promote a healthy work life balance by healthy eating, physical activity and emotional wellbeing.
