At Destination Justice, we support the idea that the first and foremost duty of each lawyer is to protect the rights of their client. At the same time, we strongly believe that each lawyer has a responsibility to promote justice and safeguard human rights and the rule of law. [Get in touch]
Uphold the indivisibility and interdependence of human rights
We believe that human rights are indivisible and interdependent. From human rights defenders who face difficult and unique challenges to defendants who are entitled to a fair trial by an independent and impartial tribunal, Destination Justice is committed to guiding and assisting its clients through sophisticated legal situations touching on a wide range of human rights issues.
Confidentiality is of the utmost importance for Destination Justice. Besides being among our professional duties as lawyers, we are acutely aware of the sensitivity of human rights issues and take all precautions to safeguard information related to our most sensitive cases.
Combine multiple perspectives to deliver better outcomes
Combining civil and common law perspectives, Destination Justice lawyers and legal professionals are able to competently assist a broad range of clients, always pursuing the mission and the vision of the organisation. Destination Justice lawyers have extensive expertise in international, regional, and domestic litigation; hold advanced degrees from some of the top schools in the world; and specialise in relevant fields. We speak and can work in English, French, Spanish, Italian, Chinese, and Khmer, and harness technology and information tools to increase collaboration, time and cost efficiency, and the overall quality of our work.
Strengthen results through collaboration
With our extensive network of partners and professionals, Destination Justice is able to contact and engage individuals and organisations on an ad hoc basis whenever a case could benefit from the deployment of rapid resources or expertise outside our core focus. Our collaborations and constant sharing with other organisations, including our partnership with the American Bar Association Center for Human Rights, helps us to grow professionally and represents an additional guarantee of excellence for our clients.
International human rights litigation
Protecting human rights is at the very heart of our mission. Drawing on our experiences advocating before various international bodies and working with a range of human rights organisations from global to local level, Destination Justice is skilled at assisting clients in international human rights litigation. Our work has included preparing legal documents for submission to international and regional bodies to raise awareness of human rights violations and devising litigation strategies for international human rights cases. We also have expertise on a wide range of human rights issues and geographic regions.
International criminal litigation
We believe that there should never be impunity for international crimes. We are strongly committed to achieving justice through supporting and applying international criminal law. Destination Justice is adept at litigation in the field of international criminal law and related fields, particularly international humanitarian law and international human rights law. Many of our team have worked in the international/hybrid criminal courts, while our activities as an organisation have involved assisting and advising international/hybrid criminal tribunal teams on issues related to fair trial rights, training investigators of possible war crimes, and developing a reference tool on international criminal procedure.
