Rankings & Awards
June 28, 2023

Ropes & Gray has again been ranked as a leading firm for Global-wide Environmental, Social & Governance Risk in the Chambers Crisis & Risk Management 2023 guide. Partner and practice head  Michael Littenberg – who is described by clients as “best in class on ESG” – is also recognized individually with a Band 1 ranking, one of only a handful of lawyers globally with this ranking. Michael also is the only U.S. lawyer Chambers has ranked for both ESG and Business & Human Rights.

Ropes & Gray has one of the oldest and largest ESG practices. More than 20 Ropes & Gray partners in North America, Europe and Asia across a range of substantive specialties are part of the practice.  Clients told Chambers that: "Ropes & Gray is very well-versed in this area and there isn't anything that they haven't seen already." Others thought that "the level of service, content, and depth of knowledge is world-class," and one source shared: "The Ropes & Gray team has the right set of cross-functional experts to help us achieve our goals and understand the environment within which we operate."  We thank our clients for this recognition and the trust they place in us every day for their most complex and important ESG matters.   

Ropes & Gray’s ESG, CSR and Business and Human Rights practice ranks highly across a number of key rankings, including The Legal 500 Green Guide and Chambers Global Business & Human Rights. The team also won the Financial Times’ most recent award for “Innovation in Sustainability for Clients.”
