Legal due diligence and human rights The role of companies and M&A lawyers


Legal due diligence processes are widely known in the context of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and corporate reorganisation projects. Their aim is to analyse the operations and organisation of companies to identify their degree of compliance with applicable legal and contractual regulations, the level of risk of non-compliance, and the potential sources of legal and contractual liability.

We live in a world where corporate social responsibility and the economic, social and environmental sustainability of businesses take centre stage, and one of the pillars of this new paradigm is respect for and protection of human rights.
