Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking

Weil, Gotshal & Manges (London) LLP is committed to high standards of professionalism, integrity and ethics in conducting our business. With approximately 1,100 lawyers in offices on three continents around the world we have a responsibility to ensure that slavery and human trafficking are not taking part in our business or our supply chain.

2018 Update

Since 2017, we have sought to ensure that, where appropriate, all new suppliers’ contracts include an anti-slavery and human trafficking clause. Typically, such a clause gives us the right to terminate agreements with suppliers where there are reasonable grounds to suspect involvement in conduct that contravenes anti-slavery legalisation. We will endeavour to include similar clauses in our existing suppliers’ contracts. We are introducing KPIs, and will continue to review, develop and evaluate these in relation to compliance with modern slavery with our key suppliers.
