ABOUT THE WEBINAR

Join us to delve into the dynamic crossroads of law and finance in the realm of climate innovation. As the world confronts unprecedented environmental challenges, the collaboration between legal experts and investment firms becomes increasingly vital. However, this alliance can look very different for lawyers depending on whether you are in private practice, in-house, or have left the practice of law entirely. 

Faculty will include:

During the hour webinar, we will discuss:

  • The role of private equity in climate from the lawyer’s perspective
  • How in-house lawyers can interact with climate and venture capital
  • How law firms can do more climate-conscious work in partnership with impact investors
  • How emerging climate and finance issues are driving trends
  • The role of pro bono in climate and private equity
  • And more!

Registrants will also have the opportunity to submit specific questions!
