ukrainian, russian, english
Yuriy Gorda is a young ambitious lawyer, who supervises the Trade and Retail industry at the Firm, supports projects in Business Building, Business Protection, Litigation, Debts and Bankruptcy practices, and deals with certain industrial issues related to Manufacturing and International Trade.
Yuriy's work is based on a combination of profound theoretical knowledge of commercial and corporate law and work experience in the economic court system, as well as in the tax and legal department of one of the Big Four companies.
Yuriy believes that the core of successful practical activity of a modern lawyer is a deep theoretical basis of jurisprudence and the ability to apply it in practice effectively. Therefore, Yuriy pays much attention to the study of modern trends in the development of domestic and foreign law. In particular, in 2017, the young lawyer completed a course in the LL.M. program (business law) at Radboud University in the Netherlands.
Having considerable experience of representating clients' interests in courts and state authorities, Yuriy believes that it is an ethical component in relations betweenclients and colleagues/opponents that are the most critical in building a successful strategy for solving any legal business problem.
This is how Yuriy describes his work experience at the Firm: "Personnel of Gramatskiy and Partners Law Firm reminds me of the Marine Corps because of their desire for maximum internal cooperation and encouragement of mutual support. What I like most is: we always have a special sense of team spirit and pride that arises on the basis of common values and the shared desire for having an excellent record and honesty. Each of our lawyers has learned the sense and concept of succession: this Firm, its reputation and efficiency are inherited from previous generations and should be preserved and passed on. In a Law Firm, you never work alone. Everything that is happening in the Firm is related to teamwork, starting with work on a project and ending with development and adoption of decisions as to the company's internal policy. The smallest team I've ever worked in was involved in a pro bono project. On the other hand, several teams, consisting of five or six counselors, may work on projects for some of the largest clients. This is a kind of "meta-team".
Gramatskiy & Partners Law Firm relies on teams, because this is the best way to solve the problems our clients face. The complexity of these problems does not allow one person to cope with them, at least within the framework of high standards established by the Firm. More people mean that you have more hands to put the data together, and what is more important, is that you have more heads to understand what all this data means. When facing complex problems in the business of clients, we always collect cross-industry teams to find solutions thereto. More hands do not mean only that the work will be easier, they also mean that the result will be better".
From early childhood, Yuriy has been fond of football, fitness, and chess; he is the author of many articles and commentaries on legal topics prepared for legal and scientific publications.
Life creed: "If you are the first you are the best. If you are the second you are nothing".
