Legal 500: Green Guide – UK
As part of the inaugural Legal 500 UK Green Guide, Hausfeld was listed as one of 27 law firms recognised for their outstanding work in moving towards a greener economy, ranging from ESG, sustainability to climate action.
Legal 500 ranks us among other top tier firms, recognising us for our work around climate action. They applaud how the launch of our Climate Impact Hub in 2021 continues to drive the conversation on the role of law in acting against climate change as well and our pro bono efforts.
'The firm has an impressive bench of climate change litigators. This includes David Lawne who assisted Save the Children International on the case involving six young people who have asked the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) to declare that 33 European states are in breach of human rights obligations due to climate change contributions. This is the first case involving climate change to be considered by the ECtHR.
Ingrid Gubbay closely collaborated with Washington-based partners on the firm’s advice to Greta Thunberg and 13 other youth climate activists. The team helped them to prepare a petition asking the UN Secretary António Guterres to declare a UN-wide emergency on the climate crisis as was done for COVID-19 in 2020.’Legal 500 Green Guide, 2022
In an interview with Legal 500, London Managing Partner Lianne Craig talks about the groundbreaking work key members of the team including Ingrid Gubbay, Wessen Jazrawi, Sarah Moore, David Lawne and Simon Bishop undertake, such as the changemaking climate change cases, our work with several NGOs, and the cross-over into consumer work and commercial disputes.
Many congratulations to the team and other firms ranked!
