New Practice Area Announcement –
Crypto and Digital Asset Advisory
We are pleased to announce the launch of a new IR Global practice area: Crypto and Digital Asset Advisory.

This decision follows on from our recent successful breakout session ‘Crypto – the future of finance’ at the Zurich conference in June and from a number of member requests.

It has become apparent that there is a real need for IR members to work together, refer files and support clients in this growth industry. There are already a number of IR members working together but we want this to become clearer and easier for members to find each other and develop their own community within IR. We feel there are a lot of opportunities for IR members and we want to ensure we maximize these.

If you or your firm wish to apply for this new, exciting practice area: Crypto and Digital Asset Advisory in your jurisdiction, and would like to discuss adding this practice area to your existing IR membership, then please contact to discuss further.

Please note – standard membership fees will apply.
Our new publication titled 'Attracting Investor Interest: Will the cannabis industry be allowed to blossom?' discusses how to adapt to the emerging opportunities the cannabis industry has to offer.

In the publication, a selection of IR Global members talk about the industry growth and how we need to adapt to the fast-changing legal landscape that accompanies it.

Each contributing member also gives their top tips on ensuring commercial success in your jurisdiction. Don’t miss out on these invaluable suggestions!
Olena Levshun, a Senior Partner with EBS in Kyiv, Ukraine, speaks with host Richard Levick. While she speaks about some of the accounting issues, she largely discusses what it is like to work and live in Kyiv during the Russian invasion of her country.

While many Americans complain about high gasoline prices, in part the result of the Russian invasion, Olena speaks with remarkable calmness about how she, her family and co-workers have adjusted to the tragedy.
