Seward & Kissel establishes ESG practice

Seward & Kissel has established an Environmental, social and governance (ESG) practice, which consists of a multi-disciplinary ESG team of attorneys focused on ESG issues who will advise clients on a broad range of ESG considerations.

The ESG practice will advise on launching impact investing strategies, addressing reporting and disclosure obligations, effectively responding to diligence requests, developing ESG and responsible investing policies, procedures and practices, and navigating ERISA matters. 

The legal and regulatory ESG landscape is ever-changing, and Seward & Kissel says it monitors, on a continuous basis, global regulatory guidance, emerging best practices, and other developments as they become available.
 
Seward & Kissel attorneys can advise clients on the unique risks and compliance considerations associated with the adoption and implementation of an ESG policy and/or running an impact investing strategy (whether via managed accounts or via private equity, hedge, or registered fund products).
