We are amongst the first law firms to commit to a science-based Net Zero target


The climate crisis touches on every area of an organisation's life, from the power used to keep the lights on to the source of its raw materials to the behaviour of companies deep in its supply chain.

Only a co-ordinated, far-sighted approach can have an impact on the problem that will define business activity for many years to come.

We take that holistic, long view and can help with:

  • Strategy: how to organise efforts to reduce direct and indirect climate impact
  • Supply chains: how to identify, then fix, supply chain issues
  • Reporting: meeting and getting ahead of regulations and buying into transparency
  • Risk: identifying and mitigating existing risks, while predicting future ones
  • Finance: navigating fast-moving green finance developments and ESG requirements
  • Taxes: how to comply with new taxes and take advantage of incentives and emissions trading
  • Intellectual Property: identifying and advising on IP issues that may arise when developing green/ clean technology across the product or service lifecycle and beyond
