ESG and sustainability

ESG Disputes & Investigations

Disputes and investigations are not often considered top-line ESG issues.  CRA has found that a social license to operate is often on the line when companies must engage in an investigation or business dispute.  Our professionals have investigated and advised on issues across the ESG spectrum, such as gender-based discrimination and sexual harassment claims, corruption, anticompetitive behavior, financial statement fraud, and others.  In each instance, a company’s ability to survive and thrive is based on that social license to operate and whether regulators, customers, and other key stakeholders are willing to continue to grant it.
