What we do

Beyond Human Rights Compliance is an international legal consultancy focused on promoting responsible business in challenging contexts.

Our approach is centred around actively assisting and supporting organisations in developing responsible business models that respect human rights, minimise legal liability and enhance sustainable practices.
We advise businesses, trade associations, and investors on both the legal and practical aspects of heightened human rights due diligence through our Three-A Approach: Assess, Advise, Act.

Assess. Comprehensive HRIAs.

Our assessments transcend tick-box exercises. We provide comprehensive human rights impact assessments (HRIAs) and due diligence programs, delving deep into your supply chain. This involves baseline assessments of business operations, precise supply chain mapping, and meaningful stakeholder engagement.

Advise. Expert legal consultation.

With a team of expert international human rights lawyers operating across several jurisdictions, we offer expert legal advice to companies on their legal and regulatory obligations and potential litigation risks. We then advise on a fit for purpose human rights respecting solution that goes beyond compliance.

Act. Mitigating impact.

Should adverse human rights impacts materialise, we can assist companies to mitigate their impact and provide appropriate remedies, including the setting up of effective grievance mechanisms.
