Portrait of Beth Sasfai

What I do:
I counsel public and private companies, funds, and their boards on a full range of sustainability, environmental, social and governance (ESG) matters.

Why Cooley?
We’re religious about putting the client first. Cooley is filled with some of the smartest and most business-savvy lawyers I know, who really take the time to understand their clients – whether startups or public companies – and render practical, business-focused advice that recognizes resources constraints.

What my clients value:
My clients want pragmatic, actionable ESG strategy, oversight, reporting and engagement solutions to drive shareholder value while carefully managing and mitigating risk.

My two Portuguese water dogs (Rocky and Poppy), women’s college softball, and a good Super Tuscan wine.

When I’m not being a Cooley lawyer:
I’m connecting over a meal at Pickett’s Village Bar in Maplewood, New Jersey. My husband and I opened Pickett’s in 2019 together with some local friends after we had frequented the spot for years following my son’s Little League games. Operating a restaurant during a pandemic is one of the most challenging things I’ve ever done!

I root for:
All things Pittsburgh (thanks to my husband) – Steelers, Penguins and Pirates!
