The war broke into the lives of Ukrainian law firms, instantly changing plans, goals, priorities, and doing business in general. Some companies were forced to stop their activities, unable to withstand an unpredictable and sharp crisis situation, but there were also those who, having adjusted their activities, were able not only to ensure the efficient operation of their own business but also to launch volunteer initiatives.

If you are interested in how the Ukrainian legal business adapted to new realities, what problems and challenges the legal market faced in the conditions of a full-scale war, and how to solve it with a view to the perspective of post-war reconstruction and recovery, we invite you to the XVII Forum "Development of the Legal Services Market".

Date and time: May 18, 2023, 10:00-19:00.

Venue: Radisson Blu Hotel, str. Yaroslaviv Val, 22, Kyiv / online.

This event is rightfully considered a leading platform for professional dialogue, where unique solutions for conducting legal business (now in wartime conditions) are worked out in a trusting environment and new non-standard ideas are put forward.

The Forum brings together top managers and business leaders of leading legal companies, heads of legal departments of the largest organizations, public figures, and leading specialists in the field of jurisprudence and marketing.

Why you should be here:

  • The event is organized by partners for partners.
  • We discuss relevant and useful information that concerns the top managers of the legal business.
  • Maximum concentration of legal market leaders per 1 m2.
  • Live communication with like-minded people, competitors, and opponents.
  • Professional and constructive dialogues with colleagues.
  • It is here that you can adopt the effective experience of others and apply it in your practice.
