ClientEarth staff celebrate The Lawyer award

ClientEarth’s impact recognised at the Lawyer awards

ClientEarth’s innovative use of law to protect the environment received fresh recognition at the 2017 Lawyer awards last night.

Organised by top industry publication The Lawyer, the awards celebrate the best work being done across the UK’s legal sector. ClientEarth won the award for In-house public sector regulatory team of the year.

James Thornton, ClientEarth CEO, said: “It is heartening to see ClientEarth’s work celebrated by the wider legal profession. We are proud to take the legal skills learned in great universities and honed in top firms across the world and use them for the benefit of people and the planet on which they depend.

“As always, it is down to the dedication, imagination and hard work of the whole ClientEarth team that we’ve been given this accolade.”

ClientEarth uses the law to achieve systemic change in a broad range of fields, from community forest rights to sustainable fisheries and from air quality to ensuring access to environmental justice for all.
