Our Sustainable Investment and Finance team has extensive expertise in the field of impact investments. RITTERSHAUS has long recognized that, although impact investing at its core follows the same legal principles as other venture capital or private equity investments, nevertheless has unique legal issues. The same applies for sustainable finance with respect to classical Finance and Banking Law. One of the main concerns is the perfect integration of social and ecological goals into corporate documents, investment contracts, guidelines and investment strategies as well as the implementation of effective protective provisions. Among our clients are impact investors, philanthropists, institutional investors, foundations, family offices and funds with a strong mission focus as well as corporations in general that seek to transform their Corporate Governance in order to be compliant with the UN SDGs.
