Legal Trends by Hannes – Episode 5: Litigating to Stop Climate Change

15 June 2021

In recent years, many states and companies all around the world have seen litigations brought against them on the grounds that they are not doing enough to stop climate change. In this episode, we discuss this trend with Freerk Vermeulen of NautaDutilh in the Netherlands, who was involved in the landmark climate case brought by Urgenda against the Dutch government. We also discuss this topic with Klaus Metsä-Simola, Specialist Partner at Hannes Snellman’s Helsinki office and an expert on environmental law, who provides a Nordic perspective on how climate change concerns are taken into account.

Legal Trends by Hannes is a podcast focusing on different phenomena and trends in the legal industry. The first season focuses on global litigation trends and is hosted by our experienced dispute resolution lawyers, Partner Anna-Maria Tamminen and Managing Associate Helen Lehto.
