Magnusson has announced that Oleksandr Liulkov has joined the firm with a team of five lawyers, including Partner Tetyana Proskurnya, and that he will be taking over as Managing Partner of the firm's Kyiv office going forward.
Liulkov, who was with Magnusson when the firm launched its operations in Kiev back in 2013, now returns to the firm. He has also worked for Andreas Neocleous and Co., Magisters, and Deloitte, among others, and most recently conducted his own practice. He focuses on banking and finance, corporate and M&A, dispute resolution, and tax.
"I am very much looking forward to further development of Magnusson’s operations in Ukraine," commented Liulkov. "Magnusson offers a unique platform for attracting business from the Baltic Sea Region countries to our country. We see positive signs of recovery on the Ukrainian market and will capitalize on this together with our colleagues in other offices."
New Magnusson Partner Tetyana Proskurnya, who joins with Liulkov, has been practicing law for over 10 years and specializes in dispute resolution, banking and finance, real estate, construction, securities, corporate and M&A. According to Magnusson, "she has extensive experience in advising on banking and finance, cross-border debt and equity transactions, restructurings, trade, and production."
“We warmly welcome Oleksandr and his team on board," stated Senior Partner Per Magnusson. "Ukraine is important for Magnusson and we advise a number of international companies operating on this market. Oleksandr has already been a part of our firm in the past and we are delighted that our clients will benefit again from his experience, knowledge and dedication."
