Nancy Rich, Chair of the firm’s Sustainability and Climate Change Practice, was featured in a Q&A article in Chicago Lawyer. Ms. Rich says strategic thinking and the ability to stay focused on solving a client’s problems are the most important aspects of her work. “‘Going green’ is becoming an economic mandate in the marketplace, and sustainability-driven laws, rules and public policy are affecting businesses and investments,” she says. “At the same time, these changes are creating new business opportunities for companies and individuals who anticipate and understand them.” Ms. Rich notes that interdisciplinary practice groups are required to properly address these new concerns.
