Human Rights

Hausfeld has always been committed to defending a person’s human rights.

We support victims of human rights violations worldwide, mostly through our pro bono work. Among other things, we have:

  • acted for mine workers in South Africa because of human rights violations,
  • acted for various journalists in information proceedings against German authorities under the Freedom of Information Act,
  • advised and litigated on behalf of non-profit organisations, such as the Society for Freedom Rights (GFF), ClientEarth or Earthjustice.
