Sheppard Mullin Launches New ESG And Sustainability Team


Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton LLP is pleased to announce the formation of a new team: ESG and Sustainability. Led by San Francisco partner Neil Popović, the multi-disciplinary ESG and Sustainability team combines knowledgeable and experienced attorneys from across the firm’s offices in the United States, Europe and Asia, representing a host of disciplines to help clients navigate environmental, social and governance (ESG) and sustainability challenges and opportunities, while enabling them to achieve their business objectives.

“There’s a lot of discussion about ESG and how corporate America is responding to this paradigm shift,” said team leader Neil Popović.  “Sheppard Mullin’s ESG and Sustainability team takes a holistic approach to these important issues, bringing together an expansive range of legal expertise and providing comprehensive advice and representation from a single law firm to help clients manage risks, take advantage of opportunities, and approach ESG and sustainability as a way to advance their business objectives.”

ESG and sustainability considerations increasingly determine the overall success of businesses and investments. Sheppard Mullin’s integrated approach to ESG and sustainability incorporates ten overlapping and mutually reinforcing areas of practice emphasis: (1) Climate Change and Decarbonization; (2) Corporate Governance and Regulatory Risk; (3) Sustainable Business and Projects; (4) Green Energy Financing and Infrastructure; (5) Project Development; (6) Land Use and Environmental; (7) Clean Technology; (8) ESG Marketing and Consumer Communications; (9) Business and Human Rights; and (10) Equitable and Healthy Workplaces. 

About Sheppard Mullin’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) and Sustainability Team

More than 40 attorneys comprise Sheppard Mullin’s ESG and Sustainability Team.  Sheppard Mullin understands the challenges and opportunities presented by ESG and Sustainability not just because the firm provides ESG-related legal services to clients, but also because the firm addresses many of the same issues as a full-service, global law firm.  Sheppard Mullin recognizes the importance of embracing ESG and Sustainability as part of how the firm thrives as a business. Sheppard Mullin treats ESG and sustainability not as mere slogans or marketing tools, but as integral components of delivering high-quality all-encompassing services and problem-solving to clients and acting as a positive force in the communities in which the firm and clients work and live, and throughout the respective value chains.
