Lawyer Monthly - April 2022

Welcome to the April 2022 Edition of Lawyer Monthly! Our cover feature for April focuses on the Russian invasion of Ukraine and its fallout for the legal sector one month following its launch. Many of the world’s largest law firms are making an exit from Russia, yet others are choosing to continue doing business there. On page 12 we analyse the emerging legal environment and firms’ justifications for their actions. This month we are also fortunate enough to feature several lawyers of distinction in the My Legal Life section. Steven Florendine and Helen Hatton, specialists in concussive injuries and offshore crime, speak with us about their respective areas of expertise in rich detail. You can find their stories on pages 16 and 44. We also hear once again from IFO Group – this time with David Prince, who on page 78 offers invaluable advice on how legal counsel can respond to catastrophic accidents. Our other cover stories round out these areas of interest by returning the focus to the legal sector itself. Chad Volkert explores the surge in demand for alternative legal services and what it portends on page 20, while highly accomplished defence attorney Sam Bassett discusses how one can excel in his chosen career on page 24. Beyond these stories, the April edition also includes a monthly roundup of legal news and lawyer moves, in addition to a plethora of articles covering topics as diverse as immigration law reform, international child relocation and Sino-Canadian investment deals. Whatever your sector, you are sure to find something of interest in this month’s magazine! We hope that you enjoy this edition. Approx. 302,000 net digital distribution.
