Svitlana Gurieieva, former Director of Legal Affairs at Auchan Retail Ukraine, has become a Partner in Sayenko Kharenko’s Real Estate and Construction practice.

Gurieieva was accompanied on the move from Auchan by Olena Denisova, who joins Sayenko Kharenko as Senior Associate.

Sayenko Kharenko describes Gurieieva as “an extremely skilled practitioner, with over 20 years of experience both with Ukrainian and international companies.” According to the firm, “she offers high-end advice on all aspects of commercial real estate matters, ranging from handling complex litigation and high-value M&A projects to compliance, commercial law, and IP issues.”

“We worked with Svitlana and Olena on various projects and got to know them as brilliant experts with deep knowledge and understanding of law," commented Sayenko Kharenko Partner Nazar Chernyavsky. "Having them on board will set Sayenko Kharenko apart from other law firms by creating one of the strongest and most business-minded real estate teams in Ukraine. This is why I am absolutely delighted to welcome Svitlana and Olena as the new members of our team.”
