Legal 500: Green Guide – UK 2024

Today, the Legal 500 Green Guide ranks us among the top tier firms in the UK and commends us for making corporate accountability and social justice at our core.

The Green Guide highlights:

“Its desire to prioritise those most vulnerable impacted by environmental misdemeanours and/or climate change translates to adopting flexible fee structure to facilitate equal access to justice. Furthermore, a significant proportion of climate and environmental work is undertaken on a pro bono basis.”

The guide highlights the groundbreaking work of key members of the team including Wessen Jazrawi and Simon Bishop.

It acknowledges our work on bringing a group action against Mercedes-Benz in the UK on behalf of thousands of individual and business purchasers of diesel Mercedes vehicles after it was found the company had installed devices to cheat emissions tests, and the work Simon Bishop does around exposing greenwashing issues in the banking sector.

They quote another high-profile case where human rights and environmental expert Wessen Jazrawi is representing The Environmental Law Foundation in its intervention in the Supreme Court hearing Manchester Ship Canal Company Limited vs United Utilities in support of resisting UU’s attempt to protect water companies from common law challenges.

Many congratulations to the team and everyone ranked!
