Navigating Challenges Posed by Climate Change

Advice for Banks and Financial Services

Date: April 29, 2021 | 11am – 12pm EDT

We invite you to join Debevoise & Plimpton’s International Dispute Resolution and Banking Group partners David W. Rivkin, Natalie Reid, Gregory Lyons, and Samantha Rowe for an insightful discussion with global leaders who are bringing these issues together in practice. We are delighted that Partner John Colas will join this impressive group of speakers.
