International

International

We vigorously pursue the rights of the individual against corporations and government. We have successfully represented thousands of people from across the globe whose human rights have been violated and whose land, health and livelihoods have been ruined by the operations of multinationals. We have represented overseas civilians against the MoD for breaches of the Human Rights Act and the Geneva Convention. We have secured many successful rulings in the Supreme Court and Court of Appeal which have transformed UK law. These rulings have increased legal accountability of corporations and government and strengthened the rule of law for the benefit of the disadvantaged and impoverished. Our work and our lawyers have been highly influential at national and international level.
