"An advanced, practical knowledge of English law and the intricacies of England and Wales as a global legal centre will be a huge advantage to anyone negotiating international transactions and disputes in the Ukraine."
Delegates will discuss:

• Disputes resolution - asset tracing
Ivan Grechkivsky, Chair of International Relations Committee of the Ukrainian National Bar Association commented:
“It is of paramount importance for the Ukrainian National Bar Association to be open to international community. Being a relatively new bar, it allows us to successfully reform and fully adopt best practices in the field. One of the key priorities of Ukrainian National Bar Association and its International Relations Committee is to develop cooperation with foreign legal communities.”
Yuri Botiuk, Chairman, British Ukrainian Law Association & partner at Grosvenor Law commented: “English Law Day (‘ELD’) in Kyiv is an excellent opportunity for Ukrainian and English legal practitioners to get together to discuss areas of mutual opportunity, growth and challenges.
"The British Ukrainian Law Association (‘BULA’) is delighted to support the Law Society of England and Wales in its ongoing commitment to the international aspects of the English legal world. Holding the ELD event in Kyiv is evidence of the already strong ties between practitioners from both sides and BULA looks forward to this being the first of many such events."
