Schellenberg Wittmer launches ESG Practice Group and ESG Disputes Reporter


Environmental, Social and Governance ("ESG") considerations are becoming a top priority for businesses across all sectors, and are on the agenda of every board member, executive, in-house counsel and compliance officer.

As a leading Swiss business law firm, Schellenberg Wittmer has been following this trend closely. Our lawyers have extensive experience in helping businesses navigate various ESG-related issues such as corporate governance matters, managing risks arising out of legislative and policy changes, revising ESG policies, advising investment managers on their ESG policies and setting up ESG-compliant investment products, advising on diversity requirements for boards of directors, advising on Swiss disclosure and reporting obligations as well as on international legislative developments and trends, and representing clients in complex litigation and arbitration proceedings with ESG components.

Leveraging our first-hand experience in ESG-related matters and the skills of our multidisciplinary team, Schellenberg Wittmer is launching a specialized ESG Practice Group including members of our advisory, transactional and dispute resolution teams. This puts our firm in a unique position to deliver comprehensive ESG advice and to continue meeting our clients' sophisticated and dynamic needs.

To further enhance our ESG offering, we are also launching a new publication series, the ESG Disputes Reporter. In this series, we will provide regular insights and updates on key developments in the rapidly changing landscape of ESG-related disputes, focusing on issues of practical importance to our clients in Switzerland and abroad. In our first report, we provide an overview of the global landscape of climate litigation involving businesses, with a special focus on climate dispute risks faced by Swiss companies and their directors.

You can sign up here to receive the ESG Disputes Reporter.
