Overview

We advise on a range of corporate issues from M&A and joint ventures, including involving the authorities, to corporate restructurings, antitrust, corporate governance as well as general commercial transactions.

From general advisory to complex transaction advice, our clients require us to be innovative and find solutions that best fit their needs, give maximum comfort to them and yet are acceptable to their counterparties.
Our team has expertise in several legal areas and understanding of the industries, regulatory and political environment in which our clients operate. This multidisciplinary approach combined with transactional experience makes us well positioned to efficiently handle projects and advise clients on general issues pertinent to their business or on a specific deal.
We supported many large-scale M&A transactions, including a landmark deal when 240 petrol stations changed hands in one transaction. In 2019 we became pioneers advising Sompo International on the first ever M&A warranty and indemnity insurance for a transaction in Ukraine. 


We believe that the active participation of the private sector and, in particular, lawyers in developing a new investor-friendly legal environment is an investment in our future. As a member of the Ukrainian Venture Capital and Private Equity Association, we urged a legislative initiative to improve the investment framework (e.g. abolishing the requirement to register foreign investments) which was adopted by the Parliament.
