Pinsent Masons is co-hosting an event with 3 Verulam Buildings and Brick Court Chambers on the topic of 'Climate Change in the Boardroom' as part of London International Disputes week

This webinar will explore what global trends tell us about the litigation impact that climate change may have on company directors in the UK, including the rise of shareholder activism and how these disputes might play out in the UK class actions landscape.
