Baker McKenzie advised South Pole Holding AG, a leading climate solutions company, on the double-digit-million euro investment by Lightrock, a leading global impact investor backed by LGT, in South Pole Holding AG. Lightrock's investment in South Pole is motivated by the growing urgency to meet this challenge, coupled with the realization that dramatically more financing is needed. Both companies, as leaders in their fields, recognize that scaled-up action today is urgent to avoid irrecoverable damage to people and the planet, and wish to take advantage of the enormous market opportunity that investment in a low-carbon economy offers. The Baker McKenzie team covered all legal and tax aspects of the transaction and was led by Kilian Perroulaz and Pascal Richard, and assisted by Ramon Tissafi (Zurich), Cora Schmid (Zurich) and Katharina Bojar (Zurich).
