Unprecedented judicial decisions (based on a strict, joint and several environmental liability for lenders) broad standing, and ongoing initiatives of the government portray financial institutions as the best target to pursue environmental protection in the country.

Advocacy In The Court Of Public Opinion, Installment Two: How Far Should Corporate Attorneys Go, Michele M. Destefano Oct 2010

Advocacy In The Court Of Public Opinion, Installment Two: How Far Should Corporate Attorneys Go, Michele M. Destefano

Articles

Today, legal controversies are tried in the court of public opinion as much as in any court of law.
