We pride ourselves in helping tackle violations of human rights worldwide. We help protect the rights of vulnerable people, women, children, refugees, marginalized and indigenous people, and others. In short, we help in upholding the human rights of people who have suffered great injustices.
A Human Rights lawyer is a guardian who fights for justice on an everyday basis, striving to get an effective legal remedy for the Client, restore the violated rights, and ensure that the compensation is being paid.
Our experienced team of Human Rights lawyers has successfully handled hundreds of complex cases worldwide, delivering robust and tailored legal solutions for our clients, namely in the European Court of Human Rights, other International Courts, in front of Interpol, as well as via a direct representation of our Clients at the national level. We have managed to fight systemic abuses of government and law enforcement agencies in the most complex jurisdictions, including the authoritarian states where human rights observance is poor and justice is a far destination to reach.
We have also ensured witnessed that severaour l clients are awarded compensations for their claims against some states. Our work is not yet complete; We never suspend our work and do not play nice compromises with abusers, meantime we always continue to thrive on our passion to ensure that international human rights issues don’t even happen, but once a violation takes place – it is being immediately addressed and justice prevails in the end.
Our human rights lawyers perform all duties related to representing clients in court to present arguments before a judge; some of our human rights lawyers work from the office making sure every party is upholding human rights and civil rights, others stand in court, and others are on the frontline of conflict zones to ensure that vulnerable groups receive the basic rights protection from United Nations or party to the conflict. Some of our most crucial tasks include:
It’s commonly known as judicial review, where human rights lawyers challenge government decisions through the courts. For example, our lawyers have often asked the court to review a government decision if they acted irrationally or unfairly, breaching the rights of an individual or a group of persons.
Our attorneys use the judicial review process in cases such as inhibiting the unlawful eviction of an individual or stopping the deportation of an asylum seeker. Often, these cases are urgent and need a human rights lawyer who is quick and efficient. Our lawyers are known to react fast and act be quick and thoroughly as they seek justice for our clients.
Injunctions are court orders ordering a person, a public or private agency (organization), to fulfill an action or preventing a person from undertaking an action. Our attorneys are the best at helping you seek injunctions also as further enforce them.For example, we help a domestic violence victim get a protection order that prohibits her partner from coming to their home or contacting her. In addition, we can help obtain an injunction preventing a breach of your privacy (including the prevention of authorities to seize your mobile devices and extract any information from them, to get an access to your email account etc)..
Our human rights lawyers are at the forefront of working with the national government to help draft legislations that positively affect human rights observance. We also provide the consult different governments and NGOs, providing them with our legal expertise and helping them to draft and implement write new laws concerning human rights. In addition, we also help develop policies while holding the government accountable for all promises and endeavors it makes regarding human rights.
At times, there is a wide scale of breaches of human rights law, which leads to the loss of many lives. Commonly, the government holds a commission of inquiry to get to the bottom of the issues that took place.
Our lawyers have experience in such investigations and scenarios and therefore help represent the interested persons. They seek to fight for the rights of the people while ensuring that the voices of the interested persons concerned are heard while seeking justice.
When an individual dies under the government’s care, such as in prison, police custody, or military facility, there must be an inquest into their death. Our lawyers are familiar with inquiriesinquests, which involve fact-finding the case to explore the circumstances of the person’s death.
Suppose there is suspicion that human rights law violation occurred; it’s grounds for an in-depth inquest before a jury. Our lawyers have many years of relevant experience in such investigation processes the inquest process and help act on behalf of the deceased’s family. They ensure the calling of all relevant witnesses and that all the right questions are asked to know what happened so justice is served and fair compensation is paid to the family upon the result of the case consideration.
This is the most common work that our human rights lawyers undertake. For example, if immigration authorities unlawfully detain a person, our attorneys will assist them in obtaining compensation from the government for their time deprivation and moral suffering.
Also, if there is discrimination against a client based on sexuality or race, we will provide a proper and comprehensive legal defensedefence d you against the years of racism endured. It’s the work of our lawyers to obtain financial compensation and seek to obtain an acknowledgment of responsibility for the action that took place.
It’s morally right that law firms give back to the communities they operate in, and our law firm hasn’t been left behind in this bright and benevolent practice. We spearhead community service by heading up human rights-oriented projects.
We enlighten people on their rights and provide give the community free legal advice. Everyone must be aware of the legal framework of human rights also as the legal guarantees and remedies they possess in case of infringement upon their rights. It also helps bring out people who face human rights violations, whom we help achieve justice, through pro-bono work. Ordinarily, 20% of all our cases are handled on a pro-bono basis.
Due to the nature of our job, our human rights lawyers work with various tasks such as drafting legal documents, searching for legal precedents cases, fulfilling a profound legal analysis, involving the best forensic experts, cooperating with human rights NGOs and investigative journalists in order to fulfill a fact-finding activity and gather maximum proof of human rights violations on different levels, arguing human rights cases in courts, etc. Therefore, they require critical, analytical, and communication skills, which, among others, are needed in international human rights law that are taught in law schools.
