As the only Dutch law firm specialising in human rights, we also advise businesses on corporate responsibility.As the only Dutch law firm specialising in human rights, we also advise businesses on corporate responsibility.
Corporate responsibility has two aspects. As a business you do not want to breach environmental standards or human rights, and having good relations with the local population is also important. After all, you want to know where your raw materials come from and whether your suppliers are trustworthy. You would prefer not to be involved with forms of corruption, money laundering, domestic conflict or become subject to international sanctions as a result. Companies in this situation are not only judged on their own actions, but also on those of other businesses in the production chain, including suppliers and customers.
We can advise you on how your business can best deal with the local situation. In doing so, we work with local researchers and advisers with whom we combine our knowledge and experience. We focus on advising on conflict regions where we also carry out research. We send our researchers to regions where other people don’t go.
