Ukrainian lawyer Yevgeniy Solodko has merged his white collar criminal defense boutique with Sayenko Kharenko.
Sayenko Kharenko describes Solodko as "one of the leading criminal defense attorneys in Ukraine," and reports that he has been "involved in a number of high-profile criminal investigations and trials and [has a] unique experience of defending publicly exposed persons against unjustified charges." In addition, the firm reports, Solodko "has special expertise in the field of Canon law and law of historical and cultural heritage."
Negotiation between the two firms had been underway for some time (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on July 15, 2019).
“Joining SK will allow us to fully concentrate on our respective areas of experience in criminal defense and provide our clients with services of the highest international standards implemented within SK," Solodko said. "Our knowledge and experience will allow the firm to significantly expand the expertise it provides. I am confident that this will be an example of successful and mutually beneficial synergy in the Ukrainian market.”
