Corporate law firms Nobles and Phenomena have joined forces in Ukraine.
According to a joint press release, "the two firms bring together their strongest assets, and the combined firm will continue to offer highest quality services to their clients under the Nobles brand – with increased resources and capabilities. Both teams share the commitment to professional excellence, uncompromising compliance and international orientation."
Nobles was founded in 2007 as the Kyiv office of Noerr and became independent in 2013. Phenomena was established in 2012.
The new Nobles will consist of 21 professionals led by five partners, primarily specializing in corporate/M&A and banking/finance, with an added focus on antitrust, real estate, employment, restructuring, and regulatory practice areas.
According to Nobles Partner Alexander Weigelt, “after ten years in the Ukrainian market, this merger will take the firm to the next level. We have known the colleagues from Phenomena for a long time. Their profile, in particular in banking and finance, will further strengthen our competitive edge to international clients in Ukraine.”
Nobles Partner Artem Nagdalian added that: “This move will allow our new firm to further excel services for our clients. We foster similar corporate culture, principles and values as well as strategic goals. This combination feels right in every aspect.”
