New York — September 16, 2005 — LAWFUEL – Chadbourne & Parke LLP hosted a reception on September 15 in honor of Ukraine President Viktor Yushchenko during his visit to New York to address the United Nations General Assembly.
The Firm held a small VIP reception and question and answer session for the President at Chadbourne’s offices immediately prior to a gala dinner to be held by supporters of the Orange Circle in the Rainbow Room at 30 Rockefeller Plaza.
The 75 guests at the reception included Chadbourne attorneys and Firm clients as well as former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, former Carter administration advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski, former U.S. Trade Representative Carla Hills, former Canadian Prime Minister John Turner and ex-New York City Police Commissioner Howard Safir. Also attending were the president’s wife, Kateryna, and Orange Circle representatives.
The president’s election gained international attention during last fall’s Orange Revolution, and the new political situation in Ukraine has presented growing economic opportunities there.
Rallies supporting the Orange Revolution took place in Kyiv’s main square, Maidan Nezalezhnosti (Independence Square), just down the street from Chadbourne’s Kyiv offices.
Chadbourne opened its Kyiv office in January 2004 at the same time it opened its Warsaw office, and recently added an Almaty office to boost its presence in the CIS region.
