Travers Smith was one of the first UK law firms to offer an ESG due diligence offering dedicated to legal due diligence. In response to social pressures as well as regulatory factors, environmental, social and governance issues are now common for the business community. We work with asset managers, lenders and corporates to help them manage the operational, reputational and compliance risks associated with ESG factors and achieve and “build” a positive impact.

Doug Bryden (DB): I have been advising clients for many years on a wide range of risks, from the environment to business ethics (including modern slavery and human rights) and related governance and board responses. The dominant trend now is to look at these operational, legal and reputational issues from an ESG perspective. Consolidating these risks under a single banner is extremely useful both in explaining these risks to boards and in streamlining a stronger, more thoughtful management response. On the one hand, my role as an “ESG lawyer” is to help clients promote ESG awareness within a firm and ensure compliance with an ever-increasing range of ESG regulatory obligations. However, this must be carefully weighed against the threat of new legal risks posed by ESG programmes and related disclosures. Much of my practice, and Heather`s, is focused on achieving outcomes that meaningfully protect a company from such legal risks without compromising the real opportunities and advances that better ESG management creates.

Continues to recruit and develop junior staff effectively and works seamlessly with other specialists in the company. “One of the team`s main strengths is the desire to understand our business in detail, go beyond strict legal principles and apply them to the business context in which we operate.” “Compared to other consulting firms, the big difference is that Travers tries to really understand the client`s business and tailor its advice to specific people, business factors and legal form. This is highly appreciated by internal teams as it avoids having to knock down ideas that are simply not practical. “This is a small but highly skilled pension law team that provides excellent service to my systems at a fair cost” TLT`s independent pension team has a strong regulatory practice and recently provided advice on a high-profile super fund issue.
