As part of its Ukraine support initiatives, the Energy Community Secretariat invites the international legal community to join the platform for pro bono legal support to Ukrainian public energy companies. On this platform, law firms and qualified independent lawyers can join the effort to recover the damages inflicted upon Ukraine’s critical energy infrastructure by dedicating any number of pro bono hours for various projects.
The Secretariat has partnered with the biggest Ukrainian public energy companies, which have incurred significant amounts of damages:
- NPC Ukrenergo (the Ukrainian electricity transmission system operator);
- NPC Energoatom (the Ukrainian nuclear energy company);
PJSC Ukrhydroenergo (the Ukrainian hydropower generating company).
The pro bono legal support will be made available to those and other interested Ukrainian companies to file claims against Russia in national courts and in international arbitration. Through the platform and in close cooperation with our Ukrainian partners, the legal services offered will be matched with the demand expressed by them.
