PHILADELPHIA, October 6, 2020 — Cozen O’Connor earned an A grade in the 2020 Law Firm Climate Change Scorecard prepared by the Law Students for Climate Accountability, a new group out of Yale Law School. Of the Vault 100 law firms scored, only four were given A grades. According to the Executive Summary, “The 2020 Law Firm Climate Change Scorecard is the first to detail the scale of top law firms’ role in the climate crisis.”
With assistance from the Natural Resources Defense Council, the Law Students for Climate Accountability analyzed litigation, transactional, and lobbying work conducted by the 2020 Vault 100 law firms from 2015 to 2019. To receive an A grade, Cozen O’Connor met the criteria for an A grade in either litigation, transactions, or lobbying and has no lobbying nor transactional work on behalf of the fossil fuel industry and no cases exacerbating climate change.
In the report, the firm was also ranked the Best Firm for Litigation Mitigating Climate Change.
