The Swiss responsible business initiative: what business & human rights obligations for Swiss companies?Sandrine Giroud, Warren Martin, Anton Vallélian, 2020
LALIVE Blog, 6 November 2020
Human rights-based remedies have become increasingly important to international dispute resolution both in the context of investment arbitration and international litigation, including criminal law. New standards and national legislation focusing on human rights, environment, labour and corruption risks have emerged as public scrutiny of judges and arbitrators has increased. States and international businesses are well advised to assess, prevent and mitigate the adverse impact of these risks on their activities.
Building on decades of experience in public international law, human rights and international humanitarian law, white collar crime and compliance, our lawyers can help anticipate, advise on as well as, mitigate or remediate the impact of these risks.
We provide tailor-made solutions working together with states, businesses, experts and civil society organisations. We can provide advice on issues ranging from new international standards such as the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and related regulation in Switzerland, design programmes of human rights remediation in complex international disputes to litigating human rights-based claims.
We can add value in the following areas:
