We condemn russia’s unjustified and unprovoked military aggression against Ukraine and its civilian population. The company does not provide services to russian legal entities and individuals and encourages international companies to join us and to refuse to cooperate with the occupier.
More than 70 leading law firms united and expressed their position on the termination of the provision of legal services to international companies that are still conducting their business and staying in Russian Federation. At the same time, we welcome all attempts by the Ukrainian management of foreign companies to announce the necessity for the aggressor country to exit the market as well as the desire to support Ukraine with significant financial, military and humanitarian assistance.
The lawyers say: “Based on our shared moral, professional and moral principles, we, Ukrainian lawyers, cannot understand and accept the position of international companies that still conduct business with russia and stay in russia as conscientious taxpayers, making their contribution to the russian military budget.
Ukrainian firms also made similar appeals individually.
