Manko Gold Katcher & Fox Environmental Law Firm Boasts LEED® Gold Certification
In politics, the saying goes that a leader should not just "talk the talk," but "walk the walk."
Still holding the record as Lower Merion Township’s longest-serving commissioner eight years after he retired from the board, Joseph M. Manko knows that dictum well.
And that is what the environmental law firm he helped found in 1989 has done in its recent move to new offices in its longtime home at the 401 Building on City Avenue in Bala Cynwyd.
When Manko Gold Katcher & Fox needed more space, it not only moved up to fill most of the ninth and top floor of the building, but it transformed the space with a commitment to follow guidelines of the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) initiative.
In a dual celebration May 8, the now 30-attorney firm marked 25 years specializing in environmental, energy, land use and related regulation and litigation, as well as its new standing as the first law firm in the Philadelphia region to achieve LEED® Gold certification for commercial interiors.
