Editor's note

CHIEF EDITOR OF YURIRDICHESKAYA PRACTIKA PUBLISHING HOUSE

This year’s increase in activity on the legal services market, primarily in the transaction segment, was ensured by the stabilization of the economic situation in Ukraine, although the reforms are not being implemented as quickly and effectively as expected. But further delays, for example, with the creation of the proposed Supreme Anti-Corruption Court may have a very negative impact on the attitude towards our state on the part of both institutional donors and private investors. Ukraine will hold presidential and parliamentary elections in 2019. And external factors will greatly determine the configuration of our legal market in the medium term. In these processes, lawyers will play the role of statisticians with minimum opportunities to influence the situation, but with good chances to take advantage of the current situation.
