International Law and Human Rights
Pogust Goodhead uses our capabilities, resources, and global networks to uphold human and civil rights worldwide.
Pogust Goodhead’s Human Rights Hub is focused on advocating for victims of injustice, violence, and exploitation across the world.
We are at the forefront of international and human rights law, ensuring that the rights of vulnerable communities and individuals are safeguarded when corporations, governments and other groups fail to uphold or directly breach them.
Multinational companies can no longer avoid accountability by operating across borders in less robust domestic jurisdictions. Public expectation, cross-border commerce, and greater overall judicial weight being given to human rights and the global community have all led to this global shift.
While much of society condemns acts of terrorism, these acts do not occur in a vacuum. Terrorist networks exploit global infrastructures to receive funding, training, and support. Similarly, state-sponsored violence is a problem across the world, from authoritarian states to democracies that are in danger of sliding there. Our teams are exploring how to hold state and non-state actors to account for the violence they perpetrate against innocent civilians.
Our lawyers are uniquely placed to address the most pressing and complex issues facing the world today, using innovative litigation strategies across the United States, UK, Europe and Latin America to help ensure that the inalienable human rights of all persons are upheld.
