Law Firms and Russian Profits

Monday, April 4, 2022

On Wednesday, March 16, 2022 “Law Firms and Russian Profits,” was launched by faculty and research staff from Harvard, Stanford and Yale Law Schools. The new project tracks the AmLaw 100 firms and UK100 firms to see which have publicly committed not to profit from work that props up the Russian war effort.

The webpage, which will be updated regularly, includes four separate lists that divide law firms by those who are exiting Russia; those who are not exiting Russia; those who have remained silent on the issue; and those who have made some pledges to not do business with the Russian government or sanctioned firms.

The research is a collaborative effort led by three law professors, Stanford Law’s Robert Daines, Harvard Law’s John Coates, and Yale Law’s Ian Ayres.
