Paul Davies recognized as one of the industry’s leading ESG lawyers for second consecutive year.
As European environmental and public laws can impact day-to-day business as well as corporate and finance transactions — Latham helps clients navigate the regulatory landscape, to address compliance, management, and liability issues.
We advise companies, purchasers, sellers, investors, borrowers, lenders, and underwriters who are based in, or doing business in the UK and Europe on a range of public law issues, including the full spectrum of environmental and climate change laws and regulations. We build global teams to help clients navigate potential environmental risks, liabilities, while also identifying the opportunities to obtain a competitive advantage both inside and outside of Europe.
Latham regularly provides advice to clients on issues across Europe, including energy and climate change regulations (such as the EU Emissions Trading Scheme), ESG risks and opportunities, permitting and compliance, and State aid matters. When the matter involves a transaction, our lawyers work seamlessly with deal teams to identify and price environmental and other compliance risks during due diligence and identify value drivers.
