Aaron Marr Page is Managing Attorney at Forum Nobis PLLC, a Washington, D.C.-based public interest law firm that helps individuals and communities affected by injustice work with complex issues of international law, human rights, and the environment. Often working with NGO partners, Forum Nobis has provided affected communities across the United States, Latin America, Africa, and Asia with superior legal counsel, specialized strategic and technical consulting, and creative, innovative communications services.
Mr. Page also teaches international human rights and environmental law at the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law and edits the International Litigation section of The International Lawyer’s annual Year in Review publication.
Mr. Page founded Forum Nobis in 2010 on the principle that while the development of international human rights law, environmental justice principles, and the concept of corporate social responsibility are landmark social justice achievements, the challenge of our era is to transform these achievements into meaningful and timely accountability results and remedies for affected individuals and communities.
Since 2010, he has worked with Ecuadorian indigenous and farmer communities and their representatives to resist one of the most brutal corporate accountability retaliation campaigns in history involving abuse of the civil justice system and to press forward with efforts to enforce an historic Ecuadorian civil judgment. The multi-billion dollar judgment, which has been affirmed on appeal to Ecuador’s Supreme Court, would require Chevron Corp. to fund a remediation of hundreds of former oil production facilities in the Amazon rainforest and provide compensation to benefit tens of thousands of surrounding residents, including five affected indigenous nationalities.
