Ashurst has teamed up with Aurecon, an engineering and advisory company, to provide integrated risk consulting and technical and legal expertise to businesses as they transition to net-zero carbon emissions.

The Australian initiative will bring together Ashurst’s legal and risk expertise and Aurecon’s understanding of asset-intensive businesses. The “first-of-its-kind alliance will enable the two firms to combine engineering, technical and legal and risk advisory solutions at a time when clients increasingly need such advice, Aurecon CEO William Cox said.
