Gowling WLG to leave Russia

09 March 2022

We are shocked and deeply concerned about the growing humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. Gowling WLG stands united with the Ukrainian people.

We are leaving Russia. Our departure will be orderly as we seek to transition the business to our team in Moscow. This decision is grounded in our values and our deep sense of what is right.

We will no longer accept new instructions from Russian clients, sanctioned or not, and we will end relationships with Russian clients in a manner that complies with our professional obligations.

We are working closely with our charitable partners – including the Red Cross and the UN Refugee Agency – to help deliver humanitarian aid to those who need it most in Ukraine and the surrounding region.
