Valentyn Zasukha has joined Hillmont Partners as Partner and Head of Corporate and M&A Practice.
Before Hillmont Partners, Zasukha spent over six years as a solo practitioner. Prior to that, he spent over seven years with Clever Management, a year as a Senior Lawyer with Dragon Capital, and, earlier still, almost two years in-house with HVB Bank Ukraine.
“Delivering legal services in ways that align with the business strategies of clients is my personal calling,” Zaukha said. “I felt grounded and inspired by working shoulder to shoulder with Hillmont Partners in a joint effort to develop a tailor-made winning legal strategy. The firm and I have now stepped up our cooperation and taken it to the next level by entering into this partnership.”
“We are very excited about Valentyn joining our partnership and the team,” added Co-Managing Partner James Hart. “He brings the highest level of expertise and project management in cross-border corporate and finance legal matters involving businesses from Ukraine. Over the past two years, our firm has worked closely with Valentyn Zasukha on some very complex client mandates related to debt restructuring in international courts.”
