Evris law firm is actively developing with a high demand for business challenges.

Meetings with representatives of the agrarian sector of Ukraine gave us an opportunity to understand that the legal services of foreign economic activity are relevant in this market. According to official sources, exports of agricultural products from Ukraine in 2018 increased by 5% compared with 2017 and amounted to a record 18.8 billion dollars. The growth of export from Ukraine requires specialists who can provide proper documentary registration of trade operations and protect the rights of producers and traders.

That`s why our law firm decided to start providing specialized legal services in the field of foreign and international trade.
