Human Rights, Business & Development

The Human Rights Council of the United Nations established the Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights in 2011. From that moment, there has been a in-depth analysis on the role of companies as bodies of society that develop specific functions, but they must comply with the legal standards of the countries in which they develop their commercial activities.

In addition to complying with the legal standards, these principles guide companies in the fulfillment of their responsibilities concerning the protection of human rights within and outside of their organizations, in respect to all individuals or situations they relate to.

In 2018, BLP established the Human Rights Business and Development practice, since it has such principles as a background, as well as the International Bar Association’s guide, offering its clients the possibility of examining processes, business policies and management decisions from the international protection of human rights standpoint.

The firm has responded to inquiries in connection with diversity, accessibility, educational inclusion, gender equality, non-discrimination, etc., arising from cases related with other legal practices (banking law, labor and employment law, administrative law, etc.) and offers its clients a work team qualified and experienced in corporate, litigation, international public law, human rights, and sustainability and social development.

These are some of the services we offer to companies, educational institutions, non-governmental institutions and organizations, etc.:

  • Development of business policies on human rights, equality, non-discrimination, diversity, etc.
  • Opinions concerning internal and external human rights respect issues, for companies in merger processes.
