  • 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.

  • AVELLUM advises joint lead managers on EUR600 mln and USD335 mln Naftogaz Eurobond issue

    AVELLUM acted as the Ukrainian legal counsel to the joint lead managers, Citigroup Global Markets Limited and Deutsche Bank AG, London Branch, with respect to EUR600 million and USD335 million Eurobond offering of Naftogaz of Ukraine.
  • AVELLUM advises Cornerstone Partners on acquisition of CoreValue

    AVELLUM acted as the Ukrainian legal counsel to Cornerstone Partners, a co-owner of IT Kontrakt, a Polish IT Company, on the acquisition of CoreValue, a US-headquartered IT service provider with Ukrainian roots.
  • How much does it cost to use “proprietary” 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.

  • AVELLUM successfully represents English trading company in GAFTA arbitration

  • 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.
  • AVELLUM advises on Ukraine`s first in over a decade Euro-denominated notes issue

    AVELLUM acted as the Ukrainian legal counsel to the Ministry of Finance of Ukraine on another milestone Eurobond deal. The issue by Ukraine of EUR1 billion notes with a 7-year tenor marks the first euro-denominated offering Ukraine has made in almost 15 years.

  • General requirements to advertising in Ukraine

    The main legal act regulating legal relations in the field of advertising is the Law of Ukraine  On Advertising . The implementation of the Law in practice requires a detailed analysis and practical experience.
