“A two degree goal requires a low carbon transition by all sectors of the economy. The Company and Financial Project recognises this and uses legal interventions derived from corporate law and financial law to speed up the transition. My work on corporate reporting seeks to improve the flow of actionable information from companies to investors – and make finance flows more consistent with a low carbon economy.”

David Cooke

David joined our London office in March 2015 as Company and Financial Lawyer.

Prior to joining ClientEarth David worked as a commercial lawyer with the international law firm Denton Wilde Sapte and more recently as a climate change and sustainability consultant focussing on carbon accounting and reporting. He is qualified as a solicitor in England and Wales and graduated with distinction from an MSc at the University of Surrey in Sustainable Development.
