Eugène Czolij Lavery is proud to announce that Eugene Czolij, a partner at the firm, will shortly receive an honorary doctorate from Lviv Polytechnic National University in Ukraine for his outstanding work as Ukrainian World Congress President. This title has been conferred on him to highlight his commitment and determination in promoting Ukraine’s interests and its Euro-integration.

Eugene Czolij is a senior litigator whose legal practice includes corporate and commercial litigation, as well as insolvency and restructuring law. In these fields of expertise, his peers have recognized him in the publication Best Lawyers in Canada.

We closely follow the extra-professional achievements of our members and are exceedingly proud to highlight their commitments and accomplishments. Throughout his career, Mr. Czolij has set himself apart by his passionate and determined mindset, which has benefitted not only his legal clients but also his fellow Ukrainians living in Ukraine and elsewhere in the world. The great honour Lviv Polytechnic National University will confer on him is a recognition of his unstinting commitment to the Ukrainian World Congress, an honour for which Lavery congratulates him heartily,” says Don McCarty, Lavery’s Managing Partner.

The Ukrainian World Congress is the international coordinating body for Ukrainian communities in the diaspora representing the interests of over 20 million Ukrainians. The Ukrainian World Congress has member organizations in 34 countries and ties with Ukrainians in 15 additional countries.
