Much of our work is concerned with holding corporations accountable for their actions. We represent individuals who have suffered injury or loss as a result of defective products and the actions of UK corporations both at home and abroad.
Our lawyers also work closely with a variety of NGOs, charities and individuals to compel public authorities and regulatory bodies to enforce policies and regulations which seek to improve corporate responsibility and accountability.
Examples of some of the cases we have handled include:
- Bringing proceedings against HM Treasury for failing to implement its own environmental policies in the newly nationalised banks
- Challenging the Serious Fraud Office’s decision to drop its bribery and corruption investigation into BAE Systems plc and Saudi Arabia
- Successfully challenging the Export Credit Guarantee Department’s failure to consult before watering down anti-corruption and bribery safeguards at the behest of big business on behalf of Corner House Research
- Securing substantial settlements of behalf of Iraqi citizens from the Ministry of Defence
- Obtaining compensation for Colombian farmers in an environmental claim against BP
- Successfully securing compensation for South African miners in a case brought against Cape plc
- Representing the families of people killed or injured in the Paddington rail crash
- Obtaining compensation for a number of people injured or killed in avoidable workplace accidents, including for the widow of a construction worker who died on a Laing O’Rourke site
