Part one of a two-part series covering the business ramifications and ethical considerations of the invasion of Ukraine, and what law firms and lawyers can do today to help and support Ukraine.

 

Part 1: How law firms and lawyers are responding

Law firm leaders from the US and the UK, a GC and a journalist and communications expert, give their advice and insiders' views as to how firms are handling the crisis, both as it impacts clients and the firm and its people. We will also hear from a leading Ukrainian lawyer based in Kyiv. Together we will discuss how law firm leaders are responding to closing business operations in Russia, and how clients are doing the same, and looking to their suppliers, including law firms to respond responsibly.

The webinar will be introduced by IBA Section on Public and Professional Interest Chair, Jörg Menzer.
