The world is changing, rapidly. NEXT is about bringing the next to now.

Businesses large and small are facing the weight of community, investor and regulatory expectations amid the greatest upheaval of our time; the COVID-19 pandemic. Keeping businesses’ lights on, ensuring employment, safety and supply continuity have suddenly become community as well as commercial imperatives.

KWM's NEXT is about rising to those expectations and imperatives.

There is an unparalleled opportunity for business to lead – to demonstrate that the same nimble agility shown in responding and adapting to the pandemic can be applied to tackling environmental, stakeholder and technological challenges.

Born out of KWM’s Major Incidents team (a core focus of our Industrial & Consumer sector), we ask ‘what’s next?’ – sharing our thinking on how we are responding to the myriad of issues companies face from the ‘everyday,’ to major incidents, to living through a pandemic.

NEXT puts the risks and hazards associated with operating in today’s world, into a legal and commercial context. We track, investors, consumers, regulators and courts’ responses. We explore what is demanded of companies to be proactive and how identifying hazards and risks can build brands and reputations – as well as compliance and continuity.
