ESG Disputes

Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG)

We recognise that ESG is top of the corporate agenda for most businesses.

As the focus on ESG continues to grow, increasing regulation, legislation, industry guidance and external pressures from stakeholders and shareholders means businesses will face increased scrutiny and associated risks.

The risk implications of ESG are likely to profoundly impact businesses and their ongoing viability and will intensify in the coming years. Proper management of ESG litigation, regulatory risks and the potential for disputes has never been more critical.

We handle a wide range of ESG-related disputes, from climate change litigation to disputes involving supply chains, human rights issues, class actions and corporate governance disputes. We are dispute resolution experts with experience working across a breadth of industry sectors and in multiple jurisdictions.

As well as handling ESG disputes, we work with our clients to help pre-empt, prepare for and resolve ESG risks before they escalate into formal disputes. While the risk implications vary from sector to sector and jurisdiction, we help clients identify the ESG risks relevant to their business and put in place the right risk management strategies, processes and policies to mitigate the risks and enhance compliance with existing and upcoming ESG laws and requirements.
