Environment & Regulatory

Environment & Regulatory

Overview

Our dedicated Environment & Regulatory Law group understands the complex interplay of business and government as well as the relevance of wider societal, environment and other stakeholder concerns.

Regulatory controls over industry, trade and governance continue to develop. Ever increasing mandatory and voluntary corporate transparency and reporting obligations add further complexity and risk. Couple these demands with more aggressive regulatory enforcement, innovative claimant litigation and intrusive stakeholder, customer and NGO surveillance, it is more important than ever for organisations to manage their regulatory compliance as well as environmental and social impacts.

Sustainability, CSR, environmental, social and governance (ESG) and other responsible investment considerations are now firmly on the corporate agenda. A considered and proactive approach is required to ensure reputational and commercial demands are balanced against compliance and legal liabilities.
Comprising some of the most respected lawyers in their fields, the group boasts a wealth of regulatory, contentious and transactional experience. Working closely with our Governance & Trade Risk lawyers and other specialists throughout the firm, we have genuine expertise in helping clients navigate these fast changing legal, commercial and reputational risks.

Clients trust us to deliver robust yet pragmatic legal and strategic advice. We pride ourselves in being able to apply our holistic and in-depth understanding of regulatory and operational risks to our clients’ increasingly complex (and global) corporate structures, funding and equity arrangements, transactions, disputes and supply chains.

We know and understand the law. More importantly, however, we apply this knowledge to the real world in which our clients operate.

Through a global network of leading regulatory, public law and environmental lawyers, we offer a seamless cross-border solution.
