Business and Human Rights

After experiencing the COVID-19 pandemic, respect for human rights has become more demanding, and giving consideration to the health and work environment of the employees and treating them fairly and appropriately, as well as ensuring fair and appropriate transactions with business partners in the supply chain are being closely monitored. In particular, human rights due diligence has become important in recent years from the perspective of the responsibility of the company to respect human rights. Beyond reputational risk, companies need to be aware of the risk of being removed or excluded from international supply chains and investments due to the pioneer legislation established in Europe and the United States, and new practices are being formed in the area of "business and human rights."

Our attorneys are well versed in domestic and international systems and practices related to business and human rights, and can provide appropriate legal advice in accordance with particular corporate situations, including reviewing human rights policies, responding to human rights due diligence matters, and handling human rights-related crises.
