The military conflict in Ukraine is not only a humanitarian drama, but also has substantial impact on business. The sanctions and counteractions result in a virtual stop of trade. Assets are being seized, prices for raw material have skyrocketed, supply chains are again disrupted. All these developments are posing a huge challenge for lawyers as well when advising their international clients, acting as corporate counsel, or exercising a function in the judiciary or a public authority. What is the impact of these developments on contracts, what is the effect of sanctions are only two of many questions we want to discuss to contribute to assist members of the legal profession to react properly to the new situation.
