Submission to the Ministry of Justice regarding access to justice for victims of UK corporate abuse

As part of a coalition, Global Witness made a submission to the Ministry of Justice on its proposals for reform of civil litigation funding and costs in England and Wales. In this submission we highlight our concerns regarding the potential impact of proposed measures regarding conditional fee arrangements on victims' access to justice in cases of corporate abuse committed by UK companies operating abroad.
