Dave Curran, ESG and Law Institute executive director and co-chair of the Paul, Weiss ESG Advisory Practice, discussed corporate governance and other ESG topics in a recent Reuters article.
The article, “General counsels & ESG: Range of skills needed to help corporate leaders navigate challenging terrain,” discusses the crucial role chief legal officers play in the context of an evolving ESG landscape.
In particular, Dave noted that an effective governance framework is paramount. While many lawyers have traditionally focused on litigation and dealmaking, “the middle, between transactions and litigation, is where all the action is,” Dave noted. “And the middle is the thing that the companies’ in-house counsel are concerned about.”
