Freshfields has appointed Timothy Wilkins as Global Partner for Client Sustainability.
The aim is to help organisations around the world assess and respond to the growing number of environmental and social risks and opportunities.
Timothy will lead a global team. The role includes advising and providing legal advice on issues such as climate change, sustainable finance and human rights. It will also support clients in projects by helping them to identify, develop and implement strategies regrading the issues stated above.
