Baker McKenzie has advised the IFC on channeling EU funds up to EUR 25 million in grants across Ukrainian cities to help renovate municipal buildings for internally displaced people, create jobs, and drive economic recovery. 

According to Baker McKenzie, “the project, implemented by the IFC in partnership with the EU, will pilot in Lviv, the largest city in western Ukraine, which has offered shelter to nearly 245,000 IDPs as of September 2022. The project aims to help Ukraine provide secure and quality temporary accommodation to people who had to flee the war-affected areas in eastern and southern Ukraine.”

Baker McKenzie’s team included Managing Partner Serhiy Chorny, Associate Bogdan Dyakovych, and Junior Attorneys Polina Korotka and Maria Gorokh.
