Between a Rock and a Hard Place: Practicing Law in Crimea / CEE Legal Matters
After Crimea was annexed by the Russian Federation in 2014, lawyers practising in the region found themselves in a difficult position.

CEE Legal Matters interviewed some lawyers from Russia and Ukraine on the specific aspects of work in Crimea. Andrey Gusev, the Managing Partner of Boreinus Russia, spoke about the main issues with regard to which businesses on the peninsula require legal support.
