Conducting Business in Ukraine in 2016
Our comprehensive guide to understanding the legal framework and environment for doing business in Ukraine.

Overview

Our Ukraine office works on some of the most significant transactions in Eastern Europe, such as advising Cargill on the US$100-million construction of a new port terminal in Yuzhni, a milestone investment that will enable the US agricultural company to ship Ukrainian grain throughout the world. We also participated in a project to help the Ukrainian government establish domestic emissions trading schemes and advised the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development on the corporate governance reform of Naftogaz, one of the country's largest state-owned energy companies.

The quality of our work is reflected in the number of domestic companies, multinationals and financial institutions that seek our advice on high-profile transactions, such as Dutch steel and mining group Metinvest's offer to existing bondholders to exchange its outstanding US$500 million guaranteed notes for new US dollar denominated guaranteed notes and a 25% cash consideration.

With nearly 25 years of experience in the Ukraine market, we work closely with our offices around the world to offer domestic and cross-border advice on matters involving Banking & Finance, Capital Markets, Corporate/M&A and Intellectual Property — all top ranked practices by Chambers Europe and Legal 500 EMEA. No matter the business or legal issue, we provide the guidance and support clients need to achieve their commercial objectives.

The Kyiv office offers a full range of legal services and business solutions. The professional staff of the office presently consists of about 50 attorneys, including 10 partners.
