Private client Tier 2

ADER HABER has been highly active advising high-net-worth individuals on wealth management, tax and matrimonial matters. The practice is 'the best choice if you want to deal with all your problems right away in one place'. Practice head Tetyana Ivanovych is praised for 'exploring each case very thoroughly and paying attention to the details'.

Practice head(s):


There is a very distinctive feature of the private client practice of ADER HABER that makes it unique: its expertise encompasses three key competencies – private structuring issues, matrimonial issues, and succession issues. Moreover, the lawyers have litigation experience, which enables them to consider and evaluate potential and actual litigation risks.

In one team, they can provide more qualified advice, explore clients’ issues profoundly and build a complex strategy fit to satisfy the particular needs of the client.

The distinction of ADER HABER from other firms on the Ukrainian legal market is that others do not possess all the necessary competencies at once, instead having only some of them. In contrast, ADER HABER presents a complete system of legal services.

I would name Tetyana Ivanovych as a trustworthy counsel in private matters, because she is totally on the same page with me on all issues addressed, which is a paramount quality, in my mind, for private counsel.

Tetyana Ivanovych understands the nature of the client’s request, indicates weak spots, and defines specific methods of risk mitigation connected with such weaknesses.

Tatyana Ivanovich and litigator Dmitry Shahirmanov’s integrated approach, high level of qualification and full legal support meant we won all the disputes that I had.

I trust them because of their moral qualities, values, mission and reputation. I was very pleased and will continue to work with them in the future.

White-collar crime Tier 2

The 'strong and experienced team' at ADER HABER joins the ranking. It has two prominent practitioners in managing partner Yuriy Petrenko and senior associate Eleonora Salova (who is 'a specialist in criminal procedure and international criminal law'). Their work includes risk assessment, the defence of business owners and senior management, representation in courts and before law enforcement agencies, and arrests on accounts in Ukraine and abroad.


A team under Eleonora Salova lead has experience, complies with international standards in its work, and is highly qualified in the criminal process.

Eleonora Salova has established herself as a high-class specialist in criminal proceedings. Working with her, I can note her extensive experience in this field, as well as indicate that in her work she can make non-standard decisions that focus on result and quality.

Eleonora Salova as the head of the team of business defence established herself as a specialist in international criminal law, in the process of joint work on various projects proved to be a team leader. I can note a high level of communication with clients and quick achievement of results planned.

All team members are interchangeable, which is why everything was always done on time on the project.
