Lawyers Weekly Podcast: A Ukrainian firm managing partner on life right now

In this special episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, host Jerome Doraisamy speaks with Myroslav Khmarskyi – managing partner of Ukrainian law firm Avitar – about what is happening on the ground and how his law firm is responding.

Mr Khmarskyi joins the show to discuss the work that his law firm does in Kyiv, what it was like in the first days of the invasion of Ukraine and how he felt, what the key realisations have been for Ukrainian people in the past month, the importance of community and the nonsensical nature of materialism.

He also delves into how he and his partner are keeping their business running, how they are managing the health and wellbeing needs of their staff in such extraordinary times, the lessons lawyers around the world can take – from a wellness perspective – from the current experience of Ukrainians, what more he thinks lawyers and legal associations can be doing in this time, and his message to lawyers around the world for news consumption during the ongoing conflict in eastern Europe.
