Johnny joined ClientEarth’s London office in October 2020.  His work focuses on exploring and implementing legal strategies to mainstream climate-related risk and to foster accountability for the impacts of climate change.


Before joining ClientEarth, Johnny worked at the international law firm Clifford Chance for nine years, specialising in international and high value commercial and financial disputes and in international human rights law.  He has also worked for human rights strategic litigation groups, and has a particular interest in social corporate responsibility and accountability.


He was awarded the highest mark in his year at the LLM in Advanced Public International Law from Leiden University in the Netherlands. He is qualified as a solicitor in England and Wales.  Before training as a lawyer, he studied History at York University.

I feel lucky to work at ClientEarth, as an organisation dedicated to using law to shape and drive the all-important climate transition and one that applies a high degree of legal rigour and expertise.
