Kenneth Berlin and his team at Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom have been working on climate-related matters for years.

Skadden had not needed a climate change group before: it simply tapped environmental, energy regulatory, intellectual property and tax lawyers to help out when the need arose. Partners at the US's highest-grossing law firm have, however, changed their minds: this month, they were scheduled to launch a 23-lawyer group specifically devoted to climate change issues.
