As Russia’s invasion of Ukraine continues, law firms are faced with the practical, legal and moral implications of doing business in Russia. In this week’s episode business of law reporter Bruce Love spoke with sanctions expert Tom Firestone of Stroock & Stroock & Lavan. Firestone has a particular insight into the region as a former Department of Justice resident legal advisor at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow. He also had a brush with Russian intelligence agents from the Federal Security Service, or FSB, and was expelled from the country after returning to private practice.
