Speakers of the workshop - Oleksandr Aleksyeyenko, Partner, and Gennadiy Atamanyuk, consultant of Integrites Antitrust practice – presented their views on compliance of Ukrainian companies’ corporate structure with the legislation on protection of economic competition, and also shared their recommendations regarding efficient liaison with the regulator on matters of obtaining the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine (AMCU) permission for concentration.
