Sorainen has provided pro bono legal advice to the Entrepreneurs for Peace foundation on repairing all the explosion-damaged windows at the Ukrainian Society of the Deaf educational and manufacturing company in Chernihiv and preparing the building for the winter. 

According to Sorainen, the facility provides jobs for 73 deaf people. "As a result of the Russian aggression, severe and targeted damage has been caused to critical infrastructure facilities, social infrastructure, and housing in Ukraine," Sorainen reported. "By providing support for the preparation of the premises for the winter period, the members of the Society of the Deaf are enabled to continue their work, even in the winter period."

"The urgency of the support projects is driven by the onset of the cold season and the desire to enable at least some villagers to live in adequate conditions as soon as possible," Entrepreneurs for Peace Board Member Ieva Driksna commented. "We are pleased with what we have achieved in renovating the facilities of the center for the deaf, and in promoting economic continuity, which is especially important in times of war."

The Sorainen team included Partners Janis Taukacs, Lelde Lavina, and Jorens Jaunozols, Counsel Raivo Raudzeps, Senior Associate Katrine Plavina-Mika, Associate Annija Straupe, and Assistant Lawyer Sofia Kurochka.

Editor's Note: After this article was published, Kinstellar announced that it had also advised Entrepreneurs for Peace. The firm's team included Partner Illya Sverdlov, Counsel Oleg Matiusha, and Associate Maryna Shulyk.
