Everything else!

Our mission is to one day be a full-service corporate law firm, where every aspect of the law is practiced through the lens of climate change.

Importantly, this does not mean only offering services with a direct link to climate change; it means offering the full spectrum of services which fall under each area of legal practice, whilst also being the best in the business at practicing each of these areas of the law through our unique, climate change specific lens.

We are aiming to launch with our ESG, Compliance & Investigations offering in early 2024. We will build out our broader service offerings over the next few years, working in an order which best supports the needs of our clients.

For now, here is a little insight into how some of the practice areas we hope to offer in due course can be practiced through the lens of climate change. We hope that these examples might be useful to any lawyer trying to work out how they can use their skills to drive a climate positive agenda through their own area of practice.

If you think that you might be the right lawyer to help Gen-R Law bring these services to market, please do get in touch.
