Avellum Lawyer Becomes Secretary General of Ukrainian Arbitration Association


On August 21, 2017, Avellum Senior Associate Serhii Uvarov was appointed Secretary General of the Ukrainian Arbitration Association by UAA President Olena Perepelynska after discussions with UAA Board members.

The Ukrainian Arbitration Association is a non-profit organization that unites lawyers (irrespective of their nationality or place of residence), who are professionally engaged or interested in international arbitration.

According to Avellum, Uvarov’s experience includes representing Ukrainian state authorities in UNCITRAL arbitration and Ukrainian state companies before foreign courts and international tribunals. He also advises clients on transnational insolvency and receivership, fraud investigations (including anti-bribery probes) and matters involving the recognition and enforcement of foreign judicial and arbitral awards in Ukraine.

“It is a great honor for me to be appointed to this position," commented Uvarov on his appointment. "The Ukrainian Arbitration Association brings together the whole Ukrainian arbitration community and allows the development of arbitration in our country, as well as exchanging experience and international best practices. I hope that in my new role I will contribute to its further development.”
