Linklaters and One Essex Court
What this session will cover
In this session we will discuss the private and public law risks in climate change litigation including:
- What are the key UK litigation risks for energy majors in connection with climate change impacts? What are the legal precedents for group actions of this kind?
- In that context, will we see the UK being used as a jurisdiction to litigate claims arising from adverse social and environmental impacts of climate change felt elsewhere? What is the scope for claims against parent companies domiciled in the UK?
Speakers: Sa’ad Hossain QC, Barrister, One Essex Court; Rebecca James, Managing Associate, Linklaters; and David Thomas, Managing Associate, Linklaters.
