Nelson Mullins is among 130 law firms and companies in a coalition to provide legal services for Ukrainian nationals in the U.S. to help them apply for Temporary Protected Status (TPS). Lawyers for Good Government (L4GG), Kirkland & Ellis LLP, and a broad coalition of law firms and companies have partnered to launch the TPS Pro Bono Project for Ukraine, a nationwide pro bono remote legal clinic to provide legal services. Some 50 Nelson Mullins attorneys are participating.
Interested Ukrainians who would like to request free legal assistance in filing for TPS should click HERE and fill out the online screening form: L4GG.org/TPS-Ukraine. Eligible Ukrainian nationals will be offered free legal assistance from pro bono attorneys who can help answer legal questions and assist in applying for TPS. TPS is a form of immigration relief offered to foreign nationals in the United States whose home countries are considered unsafe and provides the right to live and work in the United States for a temporary period. The Biden Administration designated Ukraine for TPS in early March 2022 and has declared that Ukrainian nationals who entered the U.S. on or before April 11, 2022 are eligible to apply.
