  • Top Changes for Financial Institutions on Restructuring and Recoveries Market in Ukraine

    One of the biggest fear for a creditor in providing financing is a possible default with zero perspectives to recover damages. On the international arena until recently Ukraine has been known as a high-risk country that precludes foreign investment flows. However, the situation has changed substantially over the past few years.

  • How much does it cost to use ‚Äúproprietary‚ÄĚ TM?

    For many international companies, it is a common practice to allow the use of their trademarks (TM) to all group companies on a free of charge basis. Some parent companies do not even have a right to charge the royalty payments from their subsidiaries, as this contradicts the company’s policy. In the case of subsidiaries located in the territory of Ukraine, such a situation suits everyone, at first glance, because royalties do not have to be paid at all.

  • Renewable energy in Ukraine: green auctions launched

    In the first half of 2019 alone, renewable energy facilities with a capacity of more than 1.5 GW were connected to the Ukrainian grid, with about 96% of those being solar and wind energy facilities. In the whole of 2018, which has been a record-breaking year so far, numbers were almost half as high. The Ukrainian market also remains very attractive to foreign investors, not least because of the lucrative feed-in tariff rates, which are paid out regularly. Now, after the adoption of the so-called law on green auctions, significant changes can be expected.
