Arzinger Partner Appointed Honorary Consul for the Republic of Austria in Lviv.


On October 27, 2016, Markian Malskyy, Partner and Head of the West Ukrainian Branch at Arzinger Law Office, was appointed as Honorary Consul for the Republic of Austria in Lviv and six surrounding regions of Ukraine: Lvivska, Volynska, Zakarpatska, Ivano-Frankivska, Ternopilska, and Rivnenska oblasts.

The Austrian Honorary Consulate in Lviv, according to Arzinger, "will continue supporting Austrian individuals and companies by defense of their rights and interests, contributing to cultural and educational exchange as well as to intensification of economic and political ties."

Arzinger released a statement containing Malskyy's thoughts on the appointment: "I am deeply honored to have received this appointment. I have dedicated many years of my practice as an attorney-at-law to precisely the issues of protecting the rights of Austrian investors in Ukraine, structuring Ukrainian-Austrian corporate and business relations, consulting on real estate acquisitions, contract financing, immigration matters etc. For many years Austria has been a partner to Ukraine in various important matters. Austria's extensive experience is needed for a dynamic development of Ukraine as never before. 

I am deeply convinced that there are an enormous number of areas in which our countries can cooperate. Understanding between us is the priority element for developing long-term ideas and the key to a successful implementation thereof. I kindly invite all parties interested in cultivating Ukrainian-Austrian relations to bring up respective initiatives, and will be glad to contribute to their successful launch with all means available to me."

Arzinger also reports that Malskyy will carry out his mission while remaining an attorney-at-law and a Partner at the firm.
