  • 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.

  • 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.

In the whole of 2018, which has been a record-breaking year so far, numbers were almost half as high.
