					Rimon Law Group Steps Up Sustainability Efforts

Rimon Law Group announced today that it has named Lara Pearson as the
firm’s first Chief Sustainability Officer. Rimon has been committed to
environmental and social responsibility from its inception and this
latest step further demonstrates Rimon’s commitment to preservation of
the natural environment.

San Francisco, CA, April 21, 2010 -- Rimon Law Group announced today that
it has named Lara Pearson as the firm’s first Chief Sustainability
Officer. Rimon has been committed to environmental and social
responsibility from its inception and this latest step further
demonstrates Rimon’s commitment to preservation of the natural
environment.

Ms. Pearson’s first task is seeing that Rimon Law Group meets each of the
actions needed to participate in the ABA/EPA Law Office Climate Challenge
within fifteen months. The ABA/EPA Challenge is designed for
participation by individual law offices; in other words, a group of
people operating from a single space. Because virtual law firms like
Rimon have no central office, participation in the Challenge effectively
becomes firm wide. Each of Rimon’s attorneys, who are located throughout
the country and overseas, must participate in the Challenge, whether they
work in formal offices or home offices.

Meeting the ABA/EPA Challenge involves participating in three EPA
programs: (1) WasteWise for best practices for paper management; (2)
Green Power Partnership for use of renewal energy / energy credits; and
(3) Energy Star for adopting and energy management plan and aspiring to
reduce energy use by at least ten percent. While Rimon’s current
employees meet the criteria of these programs, Ms. Pearson must
facilitate the expansion of these conservation practices to all of
Rimon’s attorneys, employees and contractors alike, and each of their
respective offices.

Prior to joining Rimon in February, 2010, Ms. Pearson was the Leader of
the Law Office of Lara Pearson. A pioneer in law firm corporate social
responsibility, Lara’s firm was the first Nevada law office, and the
fifteenth nationwide, to meet the ABA/EPA’s Law Office Climate Challenge.
Lara’s firm also was the first Incline Village, Nevada business to become
certified under the Keep the Sierra Green program.
