Legal advice

We offer a full range of advice on civil and

commercial law

in Ukraine, labor relations, corporate management, contract law, tax and competition law, copyright and intellectual property, compensation for material and moral damage, etc.

We provide training and seminars on legal and related issues for the staff.

The form of cooperation can be either from one-time consultations to subscription legal services (legal outsourcing). This service has a high productivity for the business, and certainly has its advantages, including: resource savings (administrative costs, arrangement and provision of workplace for a lawyer, surcharges for labor compensation fund) and integrated legal support (possibility of handling a request to the executive at any moment, concerning any subject and obtaining of highly qualified support as soon as possible). Outsourcing is often not a substitute for legal staff service, but it effectively complements it with proper distribution of tasks.

  

Contract law

We provide legal assistance in the field of contract law (including

commercial law

of Ukraine): development and preparation of all necessary documentation to carry out various transactions by the customer, aimed at the implementation and strengthening of the customer’s rights in its relations with contractors.

The audit of the agreements timely conducted will relieve the customer of further serious claims relating to the execution of the agreements as well as reduce the negative consequences of failure to execute them.

In the field of contract law our customers are provided with the following services:

It does not matter where in Ukraine the opponent of your client or controversial subject is placed, even in another region, the majority of legal services may be provided in Kyiv, because there are more qualified lawyers. And, if it is necessary, we have legal experts in other cities.

  

Presentation at Court

We represent the customer’s interests in legal agencies (commercial, administrative proceedings, arbitration) at any stage of the trial and execution procedures of the judicial decisions, draw up procedural documents (claims, objections, motions, complaints, etc.).

We provide advice on strategy and tactics of participation in the litigation, “acceleration”, “slowdown” of consideration of a case, using the opportunities provided by procedural law.

Such a tool of dispute resolution as arbitration courts has become increasingly popular among commercial enterprises. The advantage of solving disputes in a court may be that the dispute is settled without government intervention, and the parties recognize the authority of the court and are ready to fulfill its decision, so this legal instrument is fairly mobile and efficient. In addition, the arbitration award is subject to appeal only in exceptional cases. We provide advice to the customer, and we can determine the necessity and appropriateness of this legal instrument providing adequate legal support. It does not matter where in Ukraine the court trial will be take place, even in another region, the majority of legal services may be provided in Kyiv, because there are more qualified lawyers. And, if it is necessary, the Lawyers may make business trip or involve legal experts from other cities.

 

Registration of companies

We assist in the registration of enterprises, changes to the constituent documents (change of the composition of participants, increase/decrease in share capital, etc.) during the reorganization of companies (merger, division, separation, joining, transformation).

We also render services in the selection of nominees and managers. This service is required when there is a need for entrepreneurs to withdraw from the members (shareholders) of a business entity, but there are no trustees to transfer corporate rights to. Or when it is sometimes necessary to put the company into the “sleep mode” or establish a new company to start a new business, but the start date of the business is not yet known.

In such cases, a possible solution could be the transfer of corporate rights to a nominee or the establishment of an enterprise with a nominal founder and manager for the purpose, when the need arises, to transfer corporate rights to the right individuals or replace a nominee for a permanent director.

Such an approach allows us to keep the company in a mode of constant readiness, but the real owner is relieved of the need to monitor the current state of affairs: accounting record-keeping, reporting etc.. Depending on the wishes of the customer we will render services on the selection of nominal owners and managers.

  

Legal support and representation in the criminal proceeding, advice on criminal law

In recent years most officers of businesses have been subject to pressure from law enforcement agencies as potential objects of official or commercial crimes such as tax evasion, misuse of funds that were received under government orders, etc..

In most cases, due to the lack of legal knowledge, officials of businesses are unable to provide timely and, most importantly, appropriate repulse in reply to such illegal encroachments by law enforcement agencies.

Managers and employees of businesses are also as usual not psychologically ready to communicate with law enforcement officers as witnesses, thus greatly complicating further protection of the company against illegal encroachment and pressure.

We offer our clients not only legal advice, drafting of relevant documents (answers to inquiries, complaints, etc.) but also education and training of the management and staff concerning appropriate actions in cases of unreasonable demands that are imposed by law enforcement agencies to an enterprise.

 

Consulting services in Ukraine

It should be recognized that the system of book records in Ukraine is based not only on trade but also on tax law. As a result, such system is characterized by a high level of formalism, the need for a monthly or quarterly preparing of accts, balance sheets, declaration, that takes a lot of work time and effort. We are ready to offer not only tax consulting for the current activities in Ukraine but also advice for tax planning.

Also access to the Ukrainian market cannot be compared with access to the markets of other countries, including even the nearly countries of Eastern Europe. The events in Ukraine are developing faster, chaotic, and the consequences are often unpredictable. If investors are interested in the Ukrainian market, before deciding to access to the Ukrainian market it may be better to study it very careful. According to the practice, the cost for market studying and “business environment” is gotten regained rather quickly for the investor. We provide primary consulting (market analysis of Ukraine) in Ukraine to the clients.

Not less important every year, not only for large companies, but also for medium-sized ones, it becomes an internal audit. The regularly conducted internal audit is often regarded as a positive signal to potential investors and lenders, it increases the investment attractiveness of the company, as well as a real tool for owners and managers of the company, allowing prompt and quality control of the company. If you plan to buy a Ukrainian company, we will provide a full range of consulting services in this issue: hold economic and legal expertise, including financial, economic and tax expertise, other forms of expertise, including technical (premises, processes, etc.) with the assistance of qualified experts.
