Kidd Aitken ESG creates cohesive ESG strategies that differentiate — and make a difference.
We use decades of experience working with hundreds of law firms internationally to differentiate your ESG commitments in a highly competitive landscape. With 79% of business executives seeing the world at a tipping point for responding to climate change according to Deloitte, ESG is increasingly regarded as a priority — for clients and firms alike.
We understand ESG is more than a series of tick boxes. By using an ESG framework to underpin the values, operations, and development of your firm, you are using your growth to better communities and environments. Importantly, we understand the values and ambitions of your firm, your Partners, and your clients. We have extensive experience as trusted advisers to Partners and management in law firms around the world, and we have a track record on key issues of reputation and recognition.
Our philosophy combines a comprehensive understanding of ESG frameworks, regulations and reporting with the creativity and desire to do good and make change.
Our wider Kidd Aitken team is already deeply engrained within the fabric of many law firms. Drawing on their expertise and privileged position as advisers to Partners and management, we offer tailored support throughout your ESG journey. This includes, should you need it, the delivery of said support in seven different languages.
Matt holds an MSc degree in Environment and Sustainability and was the recipient of the 2022 Birkbeck Sustainable Futures Prize. Motivated by a desire to address the climate and biodiversity crises, he co-founded Kidd Aitken ESG alongside Daniel and Jacob. He has worked with leading law firms internationally for several years as a managing consultant with Kidd Aitken Legal Marketing.
Matt’s interests include translation and writing. His translation of L’Angoisse de Penser, a text on twentieth-century French thinkers, was published by University of Minnesota Press. He is also a keen cyclist and birdwatcher but is most at home walking, climbing, and camping amongst the UK's highest mountains — a passion that stokes his drive to support nature’s protection and restoration.
Previously Editor of the first three editions of Chambers Asia Pacific, Daniel founded Kidd Aitken ESG and its sister consultancy, Kidd Aitken Legal Marketing. Now the world’s largest legal directories consultancy, Kidd Aitken provides legal directory, marketing, and communications support to many of the world’s leading law firms.
Based on his experience of working with Partners, as well as marketing and business development teams, Daniel recognised the need to offer law firms a tailored and proactive response to the ever-increasing demands from clients, for environmental and social initiatives and compliance from their outside counsel.
Jacob is a founder of Kidd Aitken ESG and its sister consultancy, Kidd Aitken Legal Marketing, now the world’s largest legal directories consultancy. Based on his 17 years’ experience of working with leading law firms across the globe, Jacob recognised the need to offer law firms tailored solutions to the ever-increasing demands from clients for ESG compliance. Jacob was Editor of the first three editions of Chambers Latin America.
Passionate about the environment and conservation, he is a member of the National Trust, the RSPB, and The Angling Trust — a non-profit organisation leading the fight to protect Britain’s waterways from pollution.
