Draper & Draper is proud to lend its time and expertise to game-changing efforts within the legal profession to halt climate change.
Draper & Draper is a supporter of the Chancery Lane Project, a collaborative effort to bring together lawyers from around the world to re-wire contracts and laws to assist climate change mitigation and adaptation. Draper & Draper attorneys, led by Partner Corinne Atton, contributed to the development of model contract clauses and laws appearing in the latest draft of the Climate Contract Playbook. These clauses and laws are included in the Legal Pathways to Deep Decarbonization in the United States, which is a collaboration between the Columbia Law School's Sabin Center for Climate Change Law and Widener University Commonwealth Law School's Environmental Law and Sustainability Center.
Draper & Draper is devoted to using its expertise and legal knowledge to turn the tide on climate change. We have extensive experience in interstate and transboundary water disputes, natural resources and renewable energy. Our attorneys have more than 20 years of experience litigating before the U.S. Supreme Court, Federal and State courts, and before various international and domestic arbitral tribunals.
