Business and Human Rights Law

The intersection of business objectives and human rights standards can create a complex dynamic that requires companies to navigate competing regulatory regimes, complex business relationships, reputational and geopolitical risks, and market demands. Our global, multidisciplinary business and human rights law practice combines our demonstrated experience in compliance, investigations, workplace culture, dispute resolution, and transactions with global competence and industry knowledge to develop creative and strategic approaches to these critical and evolving risks.

Responsible employment practices and supply chain transparency and risk management are critical to core business operations as well as in relation to internal and external stakeholders. Morgan Lewis maintains a business and human rights law practice, within our firm’s broader ESG and sustainability practice, to monitor developments in legislation, litigation, activism, and public/social media reaction keep our clients informed. We help clients tailor tools and strategies suited to their business models, jurisdictions, and constituencies.
