Lawyer Rankings

Ukraine > International trade

AGA Partners, which reformed after merging with Avellum in 2018, acts for some of the largest Ukrainian companies involved in cross-border trade (among them Fatexpro LLC and Agro Metal FZCO). It is particularly strong in the agricultural sector, where it handles international commodities arbitration. Litigation partners Iryna Moroz and Aminat Suleymanova co-head the practice with Ivan Kasynyuk.

Ukraine > Dispute resolution

AGA Partners, which merged with Avellum in 2018, separated from the firm in 2020 (although both firms continue the relationship as an alliance). The firm is acknowledged as ‘the best‘ in international commodities arbitration, and its dispute resolution practice is mainly focused on matters of international trade. Nevertheless, its arbitration group (which is led by Aminat Suleymanova, Iryna Moroz and Ivan Kasynyuk) continues to extend its scope to investment and general commercial matters.
