Willkie has been shortlisted in the “Most Effective Pro Bono Partnership” category for the LawWorks 2023 UK Pro Bono Awards, in recognition of Willkie’s work on the Green Tech Legal Collaborative (GTLC) in partnership with Bloomberg L.P. and other firms. GTLC is in its third year of providing pro bono legal support for Greentech start-ups from Imperial College’s Enterprise Lab in the early stages of their development.
