Sayenko Kharenko Counsels Valentyna Hvozd and Igor Lozenko have been promoted to Partnership positions in the firm's Antitrust & Competition and Banking & Finance practices, respectively.

According to Sayenko Kharenko, “these promotions are a result of their significant professional growth inside the firm, their considerable market success, and their ability to consistently surpass expectations and deliver the best results for clients.”

Hvozd has been with Sayenko Kharenko for almost 14 years since joining the firm as an intern in 2006. According to the firm, “during her time at Sayenko Kharenko, Valentyna has managed over 400 projects, advising clients on a wide range of antitrust law matters including merger control, cartels, abuse of dominance, antitrust investigations and advice, distribution agreements, and unfair competition before the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine. She has extensive experience advising multinational and domestic clients on the most complex and high profile cases requiring profound knowledge and an innovative approach to meet client expectations.”

Hvozd holds an LL.B. with honors from Wisconsin International University, a Masters’s degree in law from the KROK University of Economy and Law, and another Master’s degree in law from the Intellectual Property Institute of the National University Odessa Academy in Law. 

Lozenko first joined Sayenko Kharenko in 2007. According to the firm, “he has extensive experience in cross-border finance, capital markets, debt restructuring, renewable energy, and advising banks, international financial organizations and corporations on all types of financing issues. In addition, Igor has ample experience advising on distressed debt sale transactions coming out of Ukraine.” He holds a Master’s degree in law from the Kyiv International University. Prior to joining Sayenko Kharenko spent over a year in house with Relacom Ukraine and almost a year with BTG Pactual, as well as almost two years in private practice with Avellum.

“I have the distinct pleasure of welcoming this stellar duo into the partnership,” commented Partner Vladimir Sayenko. “It’s fantastic to have such a depth of talent across the firm. Valentyna and Igor truly reflect both our commitment to exceptional client service and dedication to fostering a culture that ensures a good environment for those who are passionate about both teaching and learning. These newly appointed partners have proved themselves to be both good team players and excellent team leaders able to teach, share valuable experience with junior colleagues, and offer the highest level of benefit to their clients. I am very glad to witness that years of hard work have paid off for these two, allowing them to deservedly join our growing partner team.”
