MHC appoints two new ESG partners

Law firm Mason Hayes & Curran (MHC) has appointed two new partners in its growing ESG (environmental, social and governance) practice.

Eoin Cassidy (partner and head of the energy team) said that the appointments of Emer Shelly and Jay Sattin would further strengthen the firm’s depth and breadth of expertise in the market.

Both lawyers were already partners in other practices in the firm.


Shelly is a corporate-governance lawyer who helps clients to navigate the evolving legal and regulatory landscape relating to ESG and corporate sustainability, with a particular focus on governance issues.

According to MHC, her expertise includes the design and implementation of governance structures that help client companies and their boards of directors to ensure that relevant risks are identified and mitigated, and that applicable laws and regulations are complied with.

Sattin specialises in planning, environmental, health-and-safety and sustainability law.

MHC describes him as possessing “unique technical experience” in the area of sustainability, having worked as a sustainability consultant before moving into law.
