  • Antitrust Law Aspects in Ukraine

    Ukraine, like other European countries, developing a market economy on their territory, has incorporated antitrust regulations and legal mechanisms in its legislation to regulate and support competition, as well as rules to ensure fair competition. An integral part of the competition control is the control exercised by the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine over M&A transactions both in Ukraine and abroad, which may also affect Ukrainian domestic markets.
  • Criminal Lawyers in Dubai: Misconducts Surrounding Rape Offense

    I feel awful and outrageous to discuss such cruelty and threat which women regularly face in our society, known as "rape". Any content written on such topic cannot justify the agony and torment faced by them. 
  • Medicines advertising and unfair competition in Ukraine

    In Ukraine, advertising of medicines represents the largest share in terms of volume both on TV and Internet. Advertisers are increasingly struggling to attract the attention of older advertising consumers, strongly influenced by advertising as they trust the advertising messages they see, read or hear and do not seek advice from a doctor. At the same time, an important role is played by the advertiser’s strict adherence to the advertising law requirements for protection against unfair competition when creating and placing advertisements related to medicines and medical products, etc.

  • Inward Processing in Ukraine

    For years the Ukrainian government has been making efforts to find effective solutions to increase the Ukrainian economy efficiency and to create conditions for its further growth. To find such solutions is not an easy task. It is also important to take a closer look at the experience of the countries that used to have similar economic starting positions as Ukraine has now.

  • AVELLUM advises on IBRD-supported financing for Ukraine

    AVELLUM acted as the Ukrainian legal counsel to the Ministry of Finance of Ukraine in connection with two syndicated EUR-denominated facilities arranged by Deutsche Bank in December 2018 and March 2019 for the total amount equivalent to approximately USD1 billion.
  • AVELLUM advises EBRD and BSTDB on financing of one of largest solar projects in Ukraine

    AVELLUM acted as the Ukrainian legal counsel to the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (“EBRD ”) and the Black Sea Trade and Development Bank (" BSTDB ") in connection with senior secured loans in the total amount of up to EUR36.3 million to Rengy Bioenergo LLC (“Loans ”).
  • Renewable energy in Ukraine: trends to expect in 2019

    The alternative energy industry is one of the fastest growing and most attractive sectors for investment in Ukraine. This can be explained, inter alia , by the favorable geographical conditions in Ukraine, where solar radiation is more intense than, for example, in Germany. The wind speed in this Eastern European country makes it possible to develop large-scale wind projects. Moreover, Ukraine has a huge potential in electricity production from biogas, which, in some cases, is already partially being successfully implemented.
  • The Parliament of Ukraine ratified the MLI Convention. Is this the end of offshores?

    “Ukraine will never join BEPS and will not introduce an automatic exchange of tax information! Ukrainian tax authorities are not able to understand the international tax planning and therefore BEPS will not work in Ukraine!” - such statements in different variations repeatedly sounded addressing the deoffshorization process launched in Ukraine a few years ago.
