Our litigators are delighted to be joining a select but growing team of solicitors, barristers and legal professionals, who share our aspiration to reach the position where the most environmentally sustainable options in litigation become the default.
We believe sustainability is vital - both for our own business, and for our clients’.

Since its launch, there has been growing international interest to join and expand the initiative.
