Over the course of this year’s research, we have identified nearly 800 environmental experts from across the globe. Their impressive expertise distinguishes them as standout players in a competitive field as they act in a wide range of matters that include high-stakes regulatory investigations, major transactional deals and sensitive litigation arising out of brownfield development.
In addition, we recognise more than 120 practitioners for their first-rate experience managing climate change cases, including advising clients on emissions trading protocols and assisting them in complex regulatory compliance matters.
WWL does not list firms, only individual practitioners. The leading firms are those in each region whose listed practitioners received the most total nominations in our research.
The Global Elite Thought Leaders are those individuals who received the highest number of nominations from peers, corporate counsel and other market sources this year. Our research has identified them as being truly outstanding practitioners and the very best in their field.
