Green Tech Legal Collaborative

The Green Tech Legal Collaborative program, created by Bloomberg, Imperial College, Ropes & Gray and Willkie Farr & Gallagher, stemmed from the founding members’ shared vision of supporting climate action and sustainability through a legal/compliance pro bono initiative. GTLC launched in 2021 with the initial goal of helping six green tech startups navigate a wide range of complex legal and compliance challenges. The program has grown and evolved over time in 2023 Ashurt, Mayer Brown, Travers Smith, Shearman & Sterling, and Venner Shipley joined the founding members in supporting 18 green tech start-ups through the program.  Ropes & Gray was named joint winner of the “Most Effective Pro Bono Partnership Award” at the LawWorks Pro Bono Awards 2023, in recognition of this collaboration.
