LMAWEST Northwest Presents: Growing your ESG Practice: Internal and External Priorities




Over the last several years, law firms have seen a fast-growing emphasis on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) policies. ESG now permeates all industries, and has an effect on all areas of law. Not only do clients seek to hire firms who align with their ESG values, but they seek specialists to provide guidance on their own ESG programs and goals.  

This panel features leaders who oversee or operate successful ESG policies/practices for their own firms and/or clients. Panelists will dive into what ESG is and explore the influence that attorneys have on the ESG landscape. Legal marketers will understand their role in supporting firms who are considering development of its own ESG programs.  

Body of Knowledge Domains: Business of Law, Business Development, Client Service, Communications
