Former Arzinger Partner and Head of Tax and Labor Law Pavel Khodadovsky has been appointed Deputy Minister of Finance by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.
“I took the offer to take up the position of Deputy Minister of Finance of Ukraine as both a challenge and a logical extension of the practical experience gained during my time as a lawyer and partner of Arzinger at the head of tax and labor law practices," explained Khodakovsky. "I am glad to join the team of the Ministry of Finance and to contribute to a new stage of development of the financial system of Ukraine."
“I understand and support Pavel's decision, despite the fact that our company loses a partner and leader of several practices," noted Arzinger Managing Partner Timur Bondaryev. "I am very grateful to Pavel not only for developing Arzinger's expertise in tax and labor law over the past ten years, but also bringing up a solid team of professionals. The country is moving on, beginning a new phase of its development, and therefore powerful specialists and the best minds are needed to ensure its success, influencing the most important processes and mechanisms. Also, of course, we remain friends and will assist as needed within our pro bono projects."
