Accessibility Statement

We value digital inclusion.

Berry Appleman & Leiden LLP (herein referred to as “BAL”) is committed to ensuring a fully inclusive digital experience with equal access for all people.

In our effort to provide a fully accessible and optimized user experience for all site visitors, BAL has taken careful measure to ensure an excellent user experience, regardless of the assistive technology being used to access this site or the specific abilities of those individuals seeking access to this site.

To accomplish this, BAL has partnered with AudioEye®, a third-party provider of Web Accessibility testing and monitoring (“AudioEye”), by implementing its technology that will enable and maintain accessibility in-line with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), which also brings the Website into conformance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. The BAL website is monitored and tested regularly by internal resources and by AudioEye. As issues of accessibility are identified, results of automated and manual testing are managed through the AudioEye Digital Accessibility Platform. As new solutions are discovered to improve the user experience, remediation is tracked through the AudioEye system and fixes are implemented to improve the website user experience.

We are dedicated to regularly updating our processes and content to meet the latest accessibility standards and compliance requirements to ensure all users have an inclusive experience on the website.

This website is regularly tested using a variety of assistive technologies. We recommend using the following web browser/screen reader combinations for an optimized experience:

  • For Windows users: JAWS and Chrome or NVDA and Firefox
  • For Mac users: VoiceOver and Safari or VoiceOver and Chrome
  • For mobile users: VoiceOver for the iPhone and TalkBack for Android devices
