January 2010

On the 28th of October 2009 an international law firm «INTEGRITES» had completed a comprehensive due diligence project of contact agreements for Hochland affiliate in Ukraine that is the first stage of the regular legal support.

 

Under the leadership of the Head of commercial law department Neonila Shyshak a team of lawyers had conducted a detailed legal overview and examination of Hochland’s key agreements with its partners and contractors in Ukraine.

 

The project was aimed at studying agreement terms, indentifying all possible risks and inconsistencies with Ukrainian legislation that may cause additional legal and economic challenges. Hence now Hochland can mitigate risks related to its business activities in Ukraine.

 

Following the review, «INTEGRITES» took several measures to bring contact agreement terms into accordance with the legislation in order to strengthen the protection of Hochland’s business and increase its effectiveness.

  • 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.
