Companies and investors have recently shined an increasingly bright spotlight on the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) challenges facing public and private companies. Join us for a discussion of the broad range of topics these issues encompass, key legal considerations related to the consideration and implementation of ESG-related policies, and helpful practice points for in-house counsel seeking to navigate the evolving ESG landscape.

A variety of summer cocktails and hors d'oeuvres will be served both before and after the program on the firm’s 39th floor reception area, which offers sweeping views of New York Harbor.

important note:

The Cadwalader 200 Liberty Street office building is currently undergoing a major lobby renovation project that impacts street-level entry into the building. The only direct street-level access to our building will be via an ADA-compliant ramp at South End Avenue. All street-level visitors not requiring ADA access are asked to enter through 225 Liberty Street (directly across the street from 200 Liberty) and follow the prominently posted signs to Cadwalader. Visitors may also continue to access the building through the two pedestrian walkways from Liberty Park and from 225 Liberty Street.
