Karla Pascarella, Partner in the firm’s Austin office, will speak at the Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation Special Institute on International Mining and Oil & Gas Law, Development, and Investment Conference, April 10-12, 2019 at the Sheraton Grand Hotel and Resort in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Ms. Pascarella’s presentation titled, “Impact of the New Ethics of Human Rights on International Energy and Mineral Projects” will discuss how an uncertain human rights record or the mere failure to address human rights may expose a client to litigation, financial, reputational, and criminal risk. She will also address ways to mitigate exposure to potential issues including developing ethics and internal guidelines, human rights reporting requirements, due diligence requirements, investigatory oversight mechanisms, supply chain and stock exchange-related guidelines, and international treaties and transnational lawsuits involving resource companies.
