LALIVE among the founding law firms of the new BHRLA

LALIVE together with other 22 founding law firm members have launched a new Business and Human Rights Lawyers Association (BHRLA).

The BHRLA is established to inspire and advance business and human rights leadership, learning, collaboration and practice among commercial law firms and business lawyers around the world. It will be dedicated to the principle that business has a responsibility to respect human rights as set out in the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs) and will promote and support action by lawyers around the world to advise commercial clients on human rights risks and opportunities associated with business activities.

The association’s founding members are commercial law firms, headquartered in Australia, Canada, continental Europe, the UK and the US, with worldwide reach. Following its launch, the BHRLA will seek to expand its membership and global footprint, and to include individual lawyers and lawyers who practise in other settings.

Sandrine Giroud (partner at LALIVE, pictured) is member of the BHRLA board. The rest of the founding members are: Berwin Cave Leighton Paisner, Clifford Chance, Corrs Chambers Westgarth, Covington & Burling, Debevoise & Plimpton, DLA Piper, Eversheds Sutherland, Fasken, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, Gibson Dunn, Herbert Smith Freehills, King & Spalding, Linklaters, Mannheimer Swartling, Miller & Chevalier, Norton Rose Fulbright, Paul Hastings, Pels Rijcken, Quinn Emanuel, White & Case and Wiersholm.
