Celebrating Impact: 2023 Highlights of Maryland's 1st Certified Benefit Corp Law Practice

A Year of Purposeful Transformation

In 2023, Nazareth Bonifacino Law celebrated a significant milestone by becoming Maryland's first Certified Benefit Corporation aka a “B Corp”. This achievement marks a pivotal moment in our journey, aligning our mission with the highest standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. As the 25th B Corp law firm in the United States, Natasha Nazareth and Ginny Bonifacino are proud to lead the way in the legal industry.

Why a B Corp?

B Corps are mission-driven companies that do more than turn a profit–B Corps use business as a force for good. Nazareth Bonifacino Law is dedicated to joyful, purposeful work that transforms our communities and drives positive change.

As legal mavens, connected allies, and benevolent changemakers, we practice values-based lawyering as a force for good. As part of our commitment to a triple bottom line of people, planet, and profit, our women-owned firm focuses on purpose-driven organizations and the "missing middle" of underserved entrepreneurs who might otherwise fail during the critical first five years of a new business for lack of access to know-how, capital, and markets.

Why B Corp Certification Matters

B Corp Certification is not just a badge; it’s a commitment to a better way of doing business. The B Impact Assessment evaluates companies on four critical pillars: governance, community, environment, and customers. Our certification underscores our dedication to these values, demonstrating our leadership and commitment to making a positive impact.
