Mishcon Purpose

Process

We analyse clients' affairs, identify key sustainability risks, advise on how best to tackle them, and help you solve them - partnering with trusted specialist organisations where necessary. We follow an iterative process in an adaptive model:

  • Engagement – our starting point is getting to know you better, understanding what matters to you and what you are about: your concerns and your aspirations.  What do you consider to be your risk profile and what is your appetite: do you face an immediate threat, or are you starting a process of business review with an eye to future-proofing. We will spend time with your management and board to understand your perspective and your position.
  • Exposure Assessment – typically, we will then undertake an initial objective review of your sustainability risks and opportunities, and client-specific contextual analysis, starting with current and anticipated legal and regulatory obligations. We set out our findings in a “Purpose” report including a high level risk matrix. This will set out our view of how well your organisation is set up to align with your purpose, and where you sit in relation to your competitors, to the law and to the science.
  • Action Planning – our team will work through the issues highlighted in the Exposure Assessment with you, to map key risks and issues using the SDG and other sector-specific frameworks; prioritise and identify specific actions and strategies to de-risk and build sustainability.
  • Implementation – we will work with you to implement your Action Plan, including public and policy engagement where appropriate.
  • Monitoring – we undertake ongoing bespoke and sector monitoring our clients throughout the process.

Other integrated offerings

We build teams and procure non-legal consultancy services alongside our legal services to help clients implement change effectively and decisively. 

We advise management boards and leadership on internal and external communications throughout the change process. This early signalling is both critical to effective change management and a way of capitalising on the benefits of the change externally. Where appropriate, we introduce trusted specialist external strategic communications experts and partners.
