We specialize in offering counsel to snior executives and others both at the corporate and business unit levels – on community risk and how well their teams are dealing with this. And, we can especially fill a gap where a firm may not have the people or resources for a dedicated in-house Communities function.
We are particularly strong in the areas of Indigenous peoples issues; Aboriginal engagement; and Free, Prior & Informed Consent. Other areas of expertise include: communities and social performance (assessment; audits, strategic planning, monitoring, and reporting tools); stakeholder engagement (including internal capacity building); government relations; media; resettlement; human rights; NGO engagement; and advocacy and communication.
Our clients include both large and small businesses, governments, national and international donors, and community and civil society groups.
