Foley Hoag LLP - Corporate Social Responsibility

Practice/Organization Description

If your company already has global business interests—or is looking toward the global markets for new opportunities—you’re facing many additional, perhaps unanticipated, risks and challenges. Businesses participating in the global marketplace are increasingly held to higher standards of social, environmental and ethical accountability; and unresponsive companies risk damage to their reputations, brand image and competitiveness.

At Foley Hoag, we help our clients anticipate these challenges and limit their risks by incorporating internationally recognized standards into their strategic planning, crisis response strategies and relationships with stakeholders.

Our clients gain access to our strategic, cost-effective policies and programs, which we’ve designed to safeguard your reputation, limit your legal risk, and turn the challenges of globalization into a competitive advantage for your organization. We customize our corporate social responsibility services to match the specific needs of your industry and your organization, creating legal strategies and business policies that incorporate respect for human rights and comply with all relevant existing laws and voluntary codes.

Through our counsel, you benefit from:

Decreased threats to your corporate reputation

Reduced legal risks associated with the uncertainties of globalization

Enhanced brand image

Increased customer and employee loyalty and retention

Improved relationships with external stakeholders and public opinion leaders

Our services are based on worldwide best practices and universal standards, and we customize our work to meet your specific needs and objectives. We provide you with risk-management counsel at three stages:

Reputation risk assessment

Standard setting

Program implementation

To help you address current and prospective issues that could affect your commercial success, we also provide counseling on government issues, community and media relations, crisis response and strategic planning.
