Human rights in M&A transactions

Businesses are increasing their focus on the implications of their human rights risks and impacts. Boards and senior management are under pressure to manage these issues effectively, against a backdrop of heightened global awareness, regulation through both ‘soft’ and ‘hard’ laws, media scrutiny and stakeholder expectations.

This seminar will explore the ways in which human rights issues can impact M&A transactions. We will cover the business case for human rights due diligence, explain how this can be integrated efficiently and effectively into existing review processes, discuss appropriate risk allocation and management tools, and outline key challenges which remain in this area.

Who should attend this seminar?

M&A legal and commercial teams involved in acquisitions and those interested in learning more about trends in this area insofar as human rights are concerned.
