The Chambliss firm believes in the power of a sustainable workplace, including both the office space and the work environment for its team and clients.
A "LEED Gold Certified" Office Space
When the Chambliss team made the move to Liberty Tower, the managing partner and leadership team invested in an energy efficient and environmentally conscious office space. The firm was the only law firm in the state at the time that took the leap towards LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification and was designated LEED GOLD for Commercial Interiors by the U.S. Green Building Council in the summer of 2015 for exhibiting best-in-class building strategies and practices for energy conservation and environmental design. The office has a number of LEED features including:
Healthful carpet and paint
Use of natural light
Sensor activated equipment
Since 2015, Chambliss has been an active member of green | spaces, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose mission is to advance the sustainability of living, working, and building in Chattanooga and the surrounding region. Chambliss also joined the Law Firm Sustainability Network (LFSN) in 2017 and conducted an American Legal Industry Sustainability Standard (ALISS) self-assessment. The assessment helps track and measure sustainability efforts, provide a roadmap for additional steps to reduce the environmental impact, and provides a ranking of how firms are doing on sustainability.

A Sustainable & Healthy Environment
The Chambliss firm deeply values its people, whether they are team members, clients, or potential clients. So for the people, Chambliss leadership aims to offer a healthy, sustainable work environment. To improve morale and open communication further, the firm eliminated "corner offices" when the transition to Liberty Tower was made. The Chambliss team also enjoys regular employee appreciation events and healthy living opportunities through fitness and extracurricular activities. The Chambliss team is encouraged to maintain a good work-life balance, strengthening productivity and benefiting team members and clients.
