  • Environmental groups launch Brexit regulation court challenge over wildlife risk

    Lawyers from ClientEarth have helped launch a High Court challenge to the UK government’s Brexit laws, over sweeping new powers that may weaken protection for seas and wildlife in the UK.

  • “Sometimes my work for ClientEarth means I’m on the ‘frontline’, raising legal arguments with decision-makers; sometimes I can only bask in reflected glory when our work has been behind the scenes. But whenever change happens for the better, however it happens, I appreciate just how rewarding it is to work at ClientEarth.”
