Pro Bono Lawyer Parasto Yari, who has been with Kochanski & Partners since early 2022, will be taking on a new role leading the firm’s efforts to support diversity, inclusivity, gender equality, and refugee assistance.

According to the firm, Yari "is experienced in monitoring and investigating cases of human rights violations. She has worked for the Afghan Independent Human Rights Commission and was a Senior Advisor to the State Ministry for Peace of Afghanistan. She has represented Afghanistan at international conferences and events, worked as a legal advisor to non-profit organizations, and lectured at Afghan universities on human rights, international law, and criminal law."

Yari has a Law degree from Kateb University and a Political Science master's degree from Avicenna University. "Having experienced persecution for her beliefs, she was evacuated together with her family from Kabul in August 2021 and found refuge in Poland, where she continues to work as a pro bono lawyer," Kochanski & Partners informed. 

"As part of our mission, we intend to draw on Parasto’s talents, knowledge, and experience," Managing Partner Piotr Kochanski commented. "I can’t think of a better person to take care of this unique combination of business and the transformation we expect."
