The Legal 500 ESG UK Awards 2024

Michelmores celebrates suite of nominations at The Legal 500 ESG UK Awards 2024

Michelmores LLP is pleased to announce that it has been nominated for a suite of awards at The Legal 500’s ESG UK Awards 2024.

The awards celebrate the very best ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) initiatives across the UK legal market – private practice, in-house and the Bar. This inaugural event will see organisations and individuals recognised for their efforts to bring about change across all aspects of ESG, including diversity and inclusion and environmental and sustainability strategy.

Michelmores has been nominated for the ‘Best Law Firm Advisory Team: Environmental protection’ award, as well as for ‘Social Mobility: Private Practice Champion of the Year’ and ‘Social Mobility: Best Initiative to Attract and Retain Talent (outside London)’.

Michelmores has always been ahead of the curve when it comes to ESG – the Firm has a strong legacy of trying to reduce its impact on our environment and its work is now led through our partnership with Planet Mark, supported by wider community outreach programmes and initiatives. Last year it was also included in The Legal 500’s 2024 Green Guide, which highlights the top UK law firms leading the way on climate change, governance, and sustainability.

In addition, the Firm has a nationally recognised Natural Capital team – bolstered by its strong agriculture and energy expertise – to assist landowners, farmers and developers looking to achieve their sustainability ambitions incorporating carbon net zero ambitions, biodiversity, nutrient neutrality, rewilding, and more.

The Awards take place in London on 24 April. Read more about them here.
