Decarbonisation

Climate change poses a significant challenge to our planet, our personal lives and our businesses.

International bodies and governments across the globe are setting net zero emissions goals, putting the onus on all of us - corporates and individuals - to make significant changes.

Decarbonisation is the route to meeting these goals.

Digitalisation

Right now there’s probably at least one area of your business facing transformative change driven by technology or digital risk.

Digitalisation

Right now there’s probably at least one area of your business facing transformative change driven by technology or digital risk.

Disruption has become a business norm - not so much “Is change happening?” but rather “How quickly, and across how many areas?” Such fast-paced and often wholesale change can cause as many issues as it’s trying to solve.

You'll want to work with people who can use their comprehensive understanding of your sector and the legal implications of digitalisation to solve the problems your business is facing today. And to help you prepare for the problems and opportunities you'll face tomorrow.

Urban Dynamics

The vast majority of businesses operate in and benefit from the urban environment. We're here to help you negotiate the legal challenges you'll face as our cities change.

Before the Covid 19 pandemic, two-thirds of the world's population were expected to live in urban areas by 2050. Even if "urbanisation" looks likely to be more of an ebb and flow than an absolute - and plenty of commentators feel absolute urban growth will continue unabated over this period - cities will remain the important engine rooms of our economic growth and productivity. And the extent to which businesses understand and engage with the urban environment will have a significant impact on their success.

We've been advising clients on the legal impact of urban dynamics for years, helping them to understand how they will affect their businesses in the short, medium and long term. We understand that the way in which cities are designed, built and managed offers extraordinary opportunities. Our legal advice is focused on helping our clients to realise these opportunities.
