Nevertheless, as a firm and one of the strongest Ukrainian legal teams, we have joined forces and made significant steps towards sustainable development, supporting Ukraine. We continue our work, investing in a qualitatively better future for our country.

The EVERLEGAL team is proud to join the UN Global Compact, the world’s largest community of responsible businesses.”
