As the war of Russia against Ukraine created many pressing and unprecedented issues for our staff, AVELLUM focused on supporting our people, paying their salaries, and relevant taxes to the Ukrainian budget.
With this in mind, our friends at international law firms kindly offered AVELLUM associates to temporarily join their legal teams on a secondment basis to help with current projects and support existing practice groups without becoming permanent members of each law firm. Our attorneys have significant experience in cross-border transactions and disputes, and their skills are useful to the host offices on their cross-border matters.
AVELLUM associates have already joined or will be joining shortly such esteemed international law firms as Allen & Overy, Debevoise & Plimpton, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, Greenberg Traurig, and Linklaters. As of today, we already have two associates seconded in Warsaw, and three more are obtaining documents for secondment in London and Vienna. Furthermore, Greenberg Traurig generously offered to onboard six of our associates and place them in various offices in Europe.
We at AVELLUM are extremely grateful to our friends at international law firms for their help and support of our firm, our employees, and Ukraine in this challenging and historical moment.
