Ugljesa Grusic, Responsibility in Groups of Companies and the Future of International Human Rights and Environmental Litigation (March 26, 2015). (2015) 74(1) Cambridge Law Journal 30-34. Available at SSRN
Abstract:

This contribution notes the judgment of the Court of Appeal in Thompson v. Renwick, in which the court refused to impose a direct duty of care on the parent company to protect employees of its subsidiary from the risk of injury arising out of exposure to asbestos at work. In confirming that the exceptions to the principles of separate legal personality of companies and their limited liability apply only in truly exceptional circumstances, this judgment has the potential to set back the existing efforts within the European Union to ensure effective judicial remedy for corporate human rights and environmental abuses.
