Lewis Silkin's Dispute Resolution team signs the Greener Litigation Pledge

06 October 2021

As part of Lewis Silkin’s ongoing commitment to sustainability, its Dispute Resolution team announces it has signed the Greener Litigation Pledge, an initiative aiming to reduce the environmental impact of litigation.

The Pledge seeks to reduce the carbon footprint of court disputes, with signatories taking active steps to minimise greenhouse gas emissions. Lewis Silkin now joins a number of other leading law firms, barristers’ chambers and other disputes professionals by committing to support changes to rules, procedures and practices to reduce the environmental impact of litigation. 
Mark Lim, Head of Dispute Resolution at Lewis Silkin, says “Our generation faces a significant challenge. Steps to reduce our environmental impact must feature in all aspects of our lives. This year has seen a number of extreme weather events globally and it is clear that urgent action is needed. I’m delighted to be signing the Greener Litigation Pledge on behalf of our 50 strong team of litigators at the firm. Collectively we will work hard to effect change alongside our clients and fellow professionals.” 
Fay Copeland, Co-Chief Operating Officer, adds “As a firm, Lewis Silkin is committed to achieving the highest standards of corporate responsibility, working to address its impact on the environment.  By signing the Greener Litigation Pledge our Dispute Resolution team has helped us take another important step towards decarbonising our business and the litigation process.”
Lewis Silkin encourages all solicitors’ firms, barristers’ chambers and other dispute resolution professionals to sign the Pledge. Details may be found here
