Dave Curran and Brad Karp Co-Author ESG Column in ALM Corporate Counsel
January 10, 2022
Sustainability and ESG Advisory Practice Co-Chair Dave Curran and firm Chairman Brad Karp co-authored a column, “The ESG Outlook for 2022,” published in ALM Corporate Counsel. The authors discuss the major ESG trends of 2021, including increasing regulatory scrutiny and rising shareholder activism, as well as strategies general counsel can adopt in navigating the ESG landscape in 2022.
“The traditional patterns and tactics lawyers use to go about their business are not sufficient to deal with ESG issues that often span multiple businesses and functions across the organization,” the authors write. “Legal teams must be involved with HR, investor relations, finance, and business units likely to encounter ESG issues. Lawyers are in an ideal position to coordinate disparate parts of an organization and fill important gaps.”
