What We Do
The BHR Group is led by Michael Samway, a veteran technology company executive and global public policy advisor.
We advise information and communications technology companies on integrating global business operations with responsible decision-making on policies, practices and strategies related to free expression, privacy, censorship, surveillance, public safety and national security issues.
We have advised companies including Airbnb, Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Millicom, Nokia, Verizon Media and Yahoo!. We have also advised Cloudflare (Project Galileo), the Global Network Initiative and the Wikimedia Foundation on a pro bono basis.
We focus on operations in markets around the globe, including in countries with weak rule of law, and align our work with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and its implementing treaties, the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, the GNI Principles, national constitutions, and other norms related to business and society and the rights to freedom of expression and privacy.
