‘It will be important whatever happens’: Pallas Partners represents ClientEarth in climate action against Shell’s board

In what the client has billed ‘the first case of its kind seeking to hold corporate directors personally liable’, Pallas Partners is representing ClientEarth pro bono in its case against Shell’s board of directors for ‘mismanaging climate risk’.

After nearly a year of pre-action proceedings, Pallas Partners has filed a derivative action against the energy giant for what its client says is a failure to adopt a business strategy that will mitigate its exposure to climate risk.
