Environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) matters are gaining ever greater importance in the corporate landscape.

The interplay between existing laws and new rules coming into force is creating a new legal framework that is raising awareness of topics like climate change, environmental impact and sustainable growth and is putting ESG matters in the corporate limelight.

Our clients can rely on the expertise of our ESG Team to help their business meet all their ESG objectives and support them on the path to sustainability.

We can help companies navigate the legal framework applicable to all phases of value chain and work side by side with corporates and institutions to establish the best practices for corporate governance.

Our ESG Team covers all the main areas relating to ESG matters: environmental, social, governance, sustainable finance, monitoring & reporting, and dispute resolution.


Here’s what sets us apart:

  • We are a multidisciplinary team of professionals, with diverse and complementary expertise that allows us to identify and analyse in-depth legal implications, risks and issues. Our goal is to address ESG matters that go far beyond compliance-related legal aspects;
  • We take a holistic and multidisciplinary approach to all legal issues across the life cycle of a given project, from the development of ESG policies to their approval and implementation.
  • We have longstanding expertise in ESG matters, having assisted leading companies on environmental issues, management of human capital, corporate governance, sustainable finance, and litigation.
