The “3 pieces of advice” series is a collection of brief 5-minute slots created as a platform for legal professionals to share work and life advice with their peers.
In this latest video, Browne Jacobson senior associate Nick Smee shares his thoughts on how the sustainability agenda is likely to impact in-house lawyers and their businesses: “Your business will have to innovate in order to mee its environmental aspirations. […] Sustainability will force businesses that are perhaps not set up for innovation to develop and adopt new sustainable technologies”.
Nick advises on complex IP transactions and has acted on a series of high-profile patent and trade mark disputes from the IPEC through to the Supreme Court. He advises clients in a range of sectors including automotive, aerospace, energy, construction, tech and FMCG and has gained experience on secondment at Mondelez International, Williams F1 and Lotus.
Nick is heavily engaged on the sustainability agenda, working on new sustainable technologies including hydrogen generation, cutting-edge electric vehicles and super-fast charging. He has been working closely with the Midlands Engine on its Green Growth Conversation, speaking at events and developing strategy.
