Sayenko Kharenko has successfully represented Bacardi in a dispute with beverage manufacturer Niva over Niva's use of packaging similar to Bacardi’s Martini Bianco for its own products.
According to Sayenko Kharenko, the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine issued a UAH 800,000 fined to Niva in 2018 for its imitation of the Bacardi-owned Martini Bianco vermouth packaging. According to the firm, Niva's appeal to the Commercial Court of Kyiv was upheld, and the first instance court ruled in favor of Niva. Bacardi, in turn, appealed to the Supreme Court, which overturned all previous decisions and ruled in favor of Bacardi and the AMCU.
Sayenko Kharenko’s team included Partner Yaroslav Ognevyuk and Lawyer Tatiana Yushchenko.
