Our Practice Areas are made up of our Alliance Members from around the world. Together, they have decades of experience in national, regional, and international legal and non-legal mechanisms. 


Our Members drive systems change in the legal field, transform how legal services are provided, and share lessons learned in our communities and around the world. This unique mix of legal actors and experts ensures increased access to the most impactful avenues of justice. 


Although notable progress has been made in holding corporations accountable for involvement in atrocity crimes and other abuses, the role of financial actors and institutions has been largely ignored. Our Members in BAC have extensive expertise in financial investigations, anti-money laundering regimes, and transnational and international crimes, and they are using these tools to identify legal strategies to engage and hold financiers to account.

Extreme weather and resource scarcity are pivotal factors contributing to the escalating levels of conflict worldwide. As these issues intensify, our Members are harnessing their expertise in war crimes and crimes against humanity to tackle the environmental and climate crisis and protect indigenous people’s land rights.


Human trafficking is a network-based crime that often exploits victims for financial gain. At its core, it is a big business generating billions of dollars annually for criminal groups. Our Members aim to end this business by using traditional and alternative legal regimes, like anti-money laundering, to disrupt and dismantle the financial infrastructure and economic underpinnings enabling trafficking networks around the world.

From the agriculture and meat-packing sectors to the brick and textile industries, companies continue to source their products from suppliers using child labor. Consumers have the right to make informed choices about the products they purchase. By demanding transparency and accountability in transnational supply chains, consumers can contribute to mitigating and preventing child labor. Our Members utilize legal mechanisms to ensure companies’ claims about their supply chains and products align with their actual practices.


International crimes, some of the world’s worst crimes, encompass war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide, and the crime of aggression. As a body of law, ICL is not restricted to armed conflicts but can also be applied where there is no war, for example, in cases of serious election violence or mass forced eviction during land grabbing. Our Members investigate these mass crimes and file cases on behalf of victims to the International Criminal Court and in domestic jurisdictions under universal jurisdiction.

To ensure that victims are reasonably compensated for the harm they suffer as a result of mass crimes, environmental destruction, and human rights violations, we look beyond the traditional criminal justice approach and prosecution of individual perpetrators and use complementary legal regimes, like civil claims. Redress for survivors is an essential part of restorative and reparative justice, enables them to rebuild their lives, deters future abuses, and promotes social equity and responsibility.
