30 September 2022
A&O has been named the “Best Law Firm for Commitment to Sustainability” at both the GlobalCapital 2022 Global Awards and the GlobalCapital Americas Derivatives Awards in September.
Head of International Capital Markets, David Lucking said: “Winning this award at both the U.S. and global awards ceremonies is a fantastic recognition by our clients of our collaboration in and commitment to this area as a firm. We have expanded rapidly in the U.S. over the last two years. Our team of market-leading renewables partners who joined last year, have been actively involved across the entire renewable and ESG market, working closely with our U.S. derivatives and structured finance lawyers.”
Across the globe, A&O has led efforts to develop policy and practice by assisting derivative trade associations with white papers on emissions allowance trading, voluntary carbon credits and collateral management. The firm’s transactional work has covered a wide range of carbon, sustainability-linked and green, blue and social transactions, with significant representations in traditional project finance, project and corporate M&A, tax equity, joint ventures and private equity investments.
