Whilst allowing the most talented people, from diverse backgrounds, to thrive and enjoy their work, our ambition is to be, and be recognised as, an elite law firm with enduring foundations and a sustainable future.ApproachTravers Smith understands the rapidly growing importance of sustainable finance and continually advises its clients on how best to incorporate environmental, social and governance factors in their investment portfolios. As one of the leading firms in the City in the investment sector, we provide guidance on issues for financial institutions and asset managers, issues for pension schemes and their sponsors, issues in debt finance and derivatives, issues for corporates, issues for real estate investors, developers and landlords and litigation risks. We have focused our offering on the areas which resonate most with our clients, notably impact investing, responsible investing, regulatory disclosure requirements, financial instruments, green bonds and green buildings. Through our engagement with government, regulators, and trade associations, we also have a long history of influencing the development of policy in the sustainable finance space, helping to establish best practice and thought leadership in the area. For instance, we were recently appointed to the inaugural panel of the Impact Investing Institute and are members of the Financial Market Law Committee (FMLC) ESG Scoping Forum, as well as the International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA) ESG Risk and Capital Working Group.
