Konstantin Pilkov, founder of Cai & Lenard decided to become an attorney to continue the family tradition, which had started three centuries before.
In 1698 two brothers Cai and Lenard Thorsen from Aalborg, Denmark, founded a law practice which was engaged in commercial and private affairs and essentially contributed to the strengthening of the law and fair trade custom in the town.
One of Cai’s sons, Henrik, moved to Poland in 1720, where his descendant, received a degree in Studium Generale (Jagiellonian University) and continued the family tradition in Krakow.
The partition of Poland and further changes of the map of Europe were the reasons for that the next generations moved to the territory of modern Ukraine.
Thus, Cai & Lenard Law Firm was named after Cai and Lenard Thorsen, whose brand new approach to jurisprudence was recognized in their times.
