Debevoise Partners with Princeton School of Public and International Affairs to Create Ukraine Reconstruction Law Database

18 June 2024

Debevoise & Plimpton LLP, in partnership with the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs (SPIA) and the Kyiv-based Anti-Corruption Research & Education Centre (ACREC), has developed an interactive database of Ukrainian law on procurement and related aspects of infrastructure rebuilding and investment, as part of a larger project aimed at helping the country rebuild infrastructure that the Russian invasion has destroyed or damaged.

The Debevoise team analyzed and summarized over 450 sources of law related to procurement or reconstruction in Ukraine, including national procurement laws and implementing regulations and decrees, as well as the specific laws, regulations, and decrees affecting infrastructure companies’ operations, building codes, pricing rules, and compliance obligations. The resulting database has been published on Princeton’s Innovations for Successful Societies (ISS) website.

The Debevoise team was led by litigation partner Jane Shvets and included associate Anya Allen, senior practice attorney Oleksiy Pikhmanets, litigation analyst Tetyana Skazko and former associate Sophia Burton.
