The Steering Committee welcomes a select group of up to 48 lawyers at the forefront of ESG law across North America, Europe, and the UK. The purpose of the Forum is to connect thought leaders, with diverse areas of expertise, to explore common concerns, exchange ideas, and resolve challenges faced on behalf of their clients.
Using candid, seminar-style discussion, the group engages in meaningful dialogue about their shared experiences, and collaboratively examines legal innovation and ESG practice development.
This elite group, comprised of experts in the field, personally nominates all invitees and develops the Agenda, which forms the basis of our discussions.
