An international, full service commercial law firm, Pinsent Masons operates in a network of 26 locations across the globe in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia Pacific. We combine our international resources and sector expertise to support our clients' work right across the globe. We recognise that giving a first class legal service goes beyond pure legal guidance; a solid understanding of cultural and local commercial issues underpins all of our advice.
Our specialist climate advisory team offers deep multidisciplinary expertise, and can advise clients in all sectors on the full range of climate, sustainability and broader ESG issues. Action on climate change and sustainability are at the core of our business strategy, and we are amongst the first law firms to commit to a science-based Net Zero target.

A key commercial advantage for our clients is our focus on specific sectors.

We do, however, advise a broad range of clients across diverse specialisms.
Activism is ground zero for environmental, social, and corporate governance risk. By tracking and analysing activist campaigning worldwide, SIGWATCH helps businesses and their advisors and investors navigate the ESG terrain, and anticipate emerging issues and potentially disruptive shifts in market and stakeholder sentiment.
Founded in 1997, SIGWATCH today works with over 70 companies, including world-leading multinationals, law firms, management consultants and financial institutions. Our specially developed database, updated daily, records campaigning by thousands of activist groups in every major economy, covering every type of social concern, from environment and sustainability, to animal rights and civil liberties.
This unique dataset is made available to our clients through an online portal or direct as a data feed, and also brought to life by our team of in-house experts, who provide political and social interpretation, insight, and forecasting.
