International Law and Human Rights
Whilst international law has historically been difficult to enforce, recent Court judgments have proven that the tide is starting to change.
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.
Our lawyers are uniquely placed to help ensure that the inalienable human rights of all persons are upheld, especially when businesses and institutions engage in illegal, reckless and unethical behaviours.
Whether you’re a client, journalist, NGO, political operative, or legal professional, we’re always happy to talk. If you require any help or advice, please get in touch with the Pogust Goodhead team.
