This presentation will cover basic options for the formation of double-bottom line entities that generate returns for investors while maintaining primary emphasis on a social mission.


Brian Howe emphasizes the intersection of justice, law, and business. As a lawyer, he runs a law firm that serves companies conceived and structured to alleviate poverty, better the environment, or further social justice. As a teacher, he leads a graduate course in international development and social justice and helps change leaders understand options for structuring social enterprises. As an organizational leader, he helps artists connect with youth recovering from the effects of modern day slavery, businesses think about their Net Impact, and Seattle social entrepreneurs build world-changing ideas together. As an author, he has written on hybrid legal structures, including "What is an L3C?", assisted with research on protracted refugee situations, and was a contributing author to a groundbreaking report on human rights violations within U.S. immigration detention centers.

Mr. Howe was educated at Wheaton College (B.A.), Seattle University School of Law (J.D., high honors), and Bakke Graduate University (M.A. Pending)
