The canonical Ukrainian Orthodox has enlisted the help of a major international law firm to protect its rights.
In fact, the firm, AMSTERDAM & PARTNERS LLP has agreed to represent the Church pro bono, the Church’s Legal Department reported yesterday.
“In recent years, we have witnessed a brazen and systematic violation of the right to freedom of religion of religious organizations and the faithful of the UOC,” the Legal Department writes.
“Amsterdam & Partners LLP is a leading international law firm providing strategic support to law firms, corporations, and individuals operating in politically challenging and crisis-prone environments,” reads the law firm’s site.
“With a reputation as tenacious corporate counsel focused on proactive crisis prevention strategies, Amsterdam & Partners LLP provides its clients with a full spectrum of dispute resolution services with the aim of tackling complex issues in some of the most difficult global jurisdictions.”
In August, the firm reported that it was representing Vadim Novinsky, a former Parliamentarian Deputy and philanthropist and deacon.
