Career Transition: Pivoting to ESG

Law Firm Leaders –

  • Who owns ESG within your firm? Not your ESG practice group serving clients – but rather your own firm’s ESG program, practices, policies and performance?

  • Who leads it? Who coordinates? Who communicates? Who is measuring and managing the metrics?

  • Has this role been deliberately defined and designated to someone, or are members of your team scrambling to make sense of and to be responsive to increasing stakeholder expectations?

Given the increasing ESG expectations coming from all stakeholders – clients, prospects, recruits, employees, vendors, and communities, it is no longer sufficient to “hope” that your firm can somehow be comprehensive, consistent, and coherent when addressing these expectations and when responding to inquiries.

Hope is not a successful strategy. ESG must be led and managed by design, not by default.

Firms that take deliberate and decisive measures to make sure ESG is embedded and is properly led, coordinated, and communicated – internally and externally – will emerge as leaders.

Nurturing ESG Leaders within your firm

It is likely your firm already has managers/directors/officers who could fill the role successfully - someone who knows the firm well, is respected by partners and colleagues, and knows how to “get things done.”

However, most will need a “bootcamp” of ESG Literacy to be equipped to take the reins. Take this important step now. Give your team member(s) the tools they need to navigate the ESG tsunami successfully.
