Kudos to Suz Mac Cormac on Her Commitment to Addressing Climate Change
San Francisco corporate partner Susan (Suz) Mac Cormac represented MoFo at the 2018 Global Climate Action Summit, which included the announcement of Lawyers for a Sustainable Economy. As a founding member of LSE, MoFo has pledged to provide $2 million in pro bono legal services by the end of 2020 to organizations focused on developing and bringing to scale new approaches to building a more sustainable global economy.
As chair of the firm’s Social Enterprise and Impact Investing, Energy, and Clean Technology Groups, Suz has been a powerful force in driving our pledge to sustainability forward. Her work advising on the structure and launch of The Carbon Endowment earned her a commendation in the Financial Times 2018 Innovative Lawyers Report category, “Enabling Business Growth and Transformation.” It also contributed to the firm’s high overall ranking for “Most Innovative Law Firms 2018: Legal Expertise” — moving up four spots from last year.
Suz has extensive experience representing a number of clients, from startup to late-stage companies, in the clean technology, renewable energy, and sustainable space. Other nonprofits she’s advised include The Nature Conservancy, Common Sense Media, the Earth Genome Project, CREO Syndicate, Toniic, Pacific Community Ventures, and Year Up. She was named California Attorney of the Year by California Lawyer in 2012 for driving effective legislative change as co-chair of the Working Group for the Flexible Purpose Corporation, and again in 2016 for her innovative work in impact investing, sustainability, and corporate form.
