How well do you understand your own company’s ESG footprint? The Environmental, Social Governance rubric is vast and impacts a wide swath of company functions touching financial, sustainability, board composition, diversity and inclusion goals, and privacy. Shook, Hardy & Bacon, a premier trial firm, has developed a podcast series, E² – Examining ESG + litigation risks. Shook Chair Madeleine McDonough speaks to Shook Partner John Lewis, Jr. for an overview of ESG legal trends. John is the managing partner of Shook’s Houston office and serves clients with a busy business litigation practice and leads the firm’s Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives. John brings an in-house perspective from his time at Coca Cola where he led global litigation. As chief litigation counsel, he defended company directors and officers in shareholder derivative cases and advised senior management on all aspects of legal-risk management strategy. Shook has 18 offices in the United States and London, with attorneys and professional staff serving clients in the health, science and technology sectors in areas ranging from product liability defense and commercial litigation to intellectual property prosecution and litigation, environmental and toxic tort, privacy and data security, and regulatory counseling.
