On this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by G+T partner Michael Blakiston and special counsel Patrick Tydde and Christopher Marchesi to discuss the year that was in clean energy and decarbonisation, the big issues that lawyers in this space have had to grapple with (particularly given the political undertones), the role of hydrogen moving forward, and the economic viability of new energy pathways.

The BigLaw trio also delve into the state of affairs with carbon markets, how Australia is performing relative to global counterparts, the challenges created for lawyers in advising clients, the impact of “greenwashing”, and what’s been happening in the courts with regards to energy, including but not limited to the outcomes of recent cases, the likelihood of climate-related class actions, and what lawyers in this space can look forward to as 2022 approaches.
