This is the 7th edition of the Lexology Insights Kyiv Law firm compensation, benefits and billing report (previously known as the Legal Market Intelligence Report). It was prepared on the basis of in-depth research carried out during December 2020. The results are based on data supplied by participating law firms, as well as interviews with partners, office managers and directors of HR and finance. The report was researched by Gwilym Davies of Lexology Insights. We intend to repeat this exercise annually, addressing any fluctuations in the market, along with new areas as suggested by respondents. For this reason, we remain eager for feedback on the usefulness of the findings and on how the report’s format and relevance can be improved. © Law Business Research 2021 IV Lexology Insights – Kyiv law firm compensation, benefits and billing report 2020/2021 Foreword Profile of participating law firms We would like to express our appreciation to all of the law firms that provided their time and cooperation in the preparation of this report.
