USA: Report alleges biggest law firms are contributing to climate change through defense of fossil fuel interests

A new report by Law Students for Climate Accountability is calling out big law firms for their role in the climate crisis. The Law Firm Climate Change Scorecard analyzes litigation, transactional, and lobbying work conducted by the 2020 Vault Law 100 law firms - a US-based ranking of the most prestigious law firms - for the benefit of fossil fuel clients. The report argues that law firms are not neutral actors, and that Vault 100 firms have no shortage of clients to chose from, yet too many have chosen the side of actors' responsible for the climate change crisis.

The Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited all law firms who received a failing score according to the report's methodology to respond. Their responses or non-responses are included below.
