In recent years, PII has worked on some of the most groundbreaking litigation in the field of human rights. PII was the lead investigator for attorneys representing Iraqis tortured at the Abu Ghraib prison. PII investigated allegations against Blackwater for the shootings of civilians in Iraq.
PII has assisted U.S. attorneys in Alien Torts Statute (ATS) litigation alleging human rights abuses in Bolivia, Myanmar, Nigeria, and Honduras.
Human rights litigation presents investigators with rigorous challenges, often involving dangerous, emotional, and tragic circumstances. Investigators find themselves working across international borders, languages, and cultures in order to collect evidence that attorneys can use in a courtroom. Experienced at working with interpreters and adapting to fluid situations, PII is available to assist with human rights cases wherever such abuses may occur.
