CMS Cameron McKenna Nabarro Olswang has appointed Vitaliy Radchenko as the new Managing Partner of its Kyiv office, taking over from Graham Conlon who oversaw the firm's operations in Ukraine for the past five years.

According to CMS, Radchenko “joined the firm in 2007 and focuses his practice on M&A, financing, commercial law, and regulatory advice across oil and gas, mineral resources, conventional & renewable power generation, and carbon emissions reduction projects. Since 2013, he has led CMS’s Energy & Projects practice in Kyiv.”

Conlon, according to the firm, is moving to “a revised CMS role after five years as Kyiv Managing Partner.” He will remain the Head of International Private Equity for CEE/CIS at CMS. He will also “continue to advise clients in relation to big-ticket transactions, with a particular focus on the Middle East region which continues to offer significant opportunities for M&A and inbound investment into CEE.”

“We are very committed to our Ukraine business and have great confidence in its future success,” CMS Managing Partner Stephen Millar commented. “Vitaliy is an accomplished and devoted lawyer and brings tremendous skills to his new leadership role. I look forward to working alongside Vitaliy who will be instrumental in building on the strengths of our Ukraine offering and supporting colleagues and clients through this difficult period and thereafter.”

“We have no doubt that Vitaliy will do a standout job leading our superb Kyiv team,” CMS CEE Managing Director Dora Petranyi added. “I’d also like to thank Graham for his leadership of the Kyiv office over the past five years, during which period the office has grown significantly.”

“I look forward to leading the talented Kyiv team who, over the last months in particular, have shown incredible resilience, strength, and commitment to the firm and our clients during what are extremely challenging and unprecedented times,” Radchenko said. “We have every confidence that we can and will play an important role in supporting our clients as we look to the future and begin the rebuilding phase.”
