HUMAN RIGHTS IN BUSINESS
At PB&C, we assist and advise individuals, companies, international organisations, NGOs, and States on issues at the nexus where quasi-legal instruments (like recommendations or guidelines) meet issues of legal liability, risk, and regulatory compliance. We also assist and advise audit firms and independent auditors who are progressively being asked to assist clients with this area.
We offer expertise on human rights, corporate governance, white collar, employment law, and mediation, whilst working alongside partner organisations and outsourced professionals who are active in security, corporate and environmental responsibility, political and social risk. Advising on the obligations of companies under the UNGPs and the OECD Guidelines, we can act as an extension to an in-house team or have business and human rights projects outsourced to us, in addition to providing legal and strategic advice.
