Keren Adams will be speaking on Leigh Day’s work in the field of international human rights litigation and the real challenges involved in seeking to hold UK corporations to account for their actions in the global south.

Keren Adams is a senior solicitor at Leigh Day & Co, one of the UK’s foremost human rights firms. She has worked on a number of landmark cases against both the UK government and UK multinationals accused of serious environmental and human rights abuses in developing countries, including what is thought to be the UK’s largest group action to date against multinational oil trader Trafigura arising from the dumping of toxic waste in Abidjan in 2006.
