To help our clients reach their ESG goals, we consolidated our expertise and set up our ESG & Public Policy Practice, which is built on the experience and acumen of more than 650 lawyers across our network. Co-headed by Adrian Ang, Elsa Chen, Lee Kee Yeng and Sophie Lim, our team has formidable collective experience in working with and representing both private entities and government bodies, our team drives successful results for our clients and provides unique perspectives on how business, ESG issues and policy intersect. Our Partners are also the go-to legal advisors for a wide and diverse range of industries, and have accumulated an intimate knowledge of the inner commercial workings and drivers of each sector.
We understand that ESG and public policy issues are multi-faceted, and that businesses and governments are placing their social and sustainability agenda at the fore of what they stand for. As such, we adopt a multi-disciplinary approach in working across the various award-winning practices within our Firm and regional network to advance the interests of our clients. Apart from lawyers who are legislative advocates as well as professionals who have considerable personal experience with the legislative and executive branches of some of the region’s local governments, we also have access to the largest and most established in-house economics team of any law firm in Singapore, with years of experience advising on public policy and regulatory matters.
