In this episode, we highlight Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) concerns from the perspective of companies and investors, including recent trends in ESG investing, the impact of the pandemic, and the ESG issues that have been the focus of companies, boards, shareholders and proxy advisory firms in recent years.

Leading the discussion are Mary Mullany and Jaryn Fields, both of whom are members of Ballard’s Business and Transactions Group in the Philadelphia office. 

Mary Mullany is a partner who focuses her practice on securities law disclosure, executive compensation, corporate governance, capital raising and M&A transactions for both publicly traded and privately held companies, particularly those in the health care, medical device and life sciences industries.

Jaryn Fields is an associate who focuses her practice on corporate finance transactions, M&A, corporate governance and securities law disclosure.

Their guest for the podcast is Zally Ahmadi, who joins us from D.F. King, an AST Company. D.F. King provides corporate governance advisory, proxy solicitation and M&A services to companies in the US and Canada. Zally Ahmadi serves as SVP, Corporate Governance, ESG & Executive Compensation for D.F.
