Legal500 noemt Paulussen Advocaten als ‘recommended firm’ in de Legal 500 Global Green Guide


Legal 500 roemt het baanbrekende internationale werk van Roger Cox en zijn climate litigation team. Uit de Legal 500Global Green Guide:

“In the Netherlands, full-service firm Paulussen Advocaten is paving the way for climate litigation at a global scale. The team led by Roger Cox, author of Revolution Justified who is notably listed as one of TIME’s 100 most influential people of 2021, has been at the centre of multiple precedent-setting climate litigation wins. The historic Urgenda Foundation v. The State of the Netherlands case in 2015 broke new ground as the first successful challenge of national climate policy holding the Netherlands legally liable for duty of care of its citizens. Similarly, in June 2021 the team, together with Equal Partners, acted on behalf of 58,000 citizens and Belgian NGO Klimaatzaak against the Belgian federal and regional governments, and in May 2021 won another historic judgement on behalf of Milieudefensie (Friends of the Earth Netherlands) and others against Royal Dutch Shell requiring the oil giant to integrate the Paris climate goal in its business operations. The firm’s service offering also covers renewable energy transition and environmental law matters, green procurement, and the integration of sustainability in spatial planning, mobility, real estate, and city development projects.”
