Sayenko Kharenko Partner Serhiy Verlanov resigned from the firm's partnership following his appointment as Deputy Minister of Finance of Ukraine.
According to Sayenko Kharenko, "Verlanov has experience in the fields of taxation and tax litigation and expertise advising on public sector projects. He has experience handling taxation matters relating to cross-border transaction structuring, tax due diligence, public and private offerings, inter-company charges, dividend distribution, and other complex international projects." The firm reports that "Verlanov has over a decade of representation of clients, including expat managers, in criminal cases of tax evasion as well as in tax litigation proceedings at all levels of the judiciary."
“Since joining the firm in 2015," Partner Vladimir Sayenko said, "Serhiy has managed to build one of the strongest tax practices in the market. He has invested in the team’s professional growth and personal development, which gives us confidence that our tax practice will continue to develop under the supervision of Counsel Vitaliy Odzhykovskyy. We are grateful to Serhiy for all his work and dedication, and we have no doubt that his appointment is good news for Ukraine.”
Before joining Sayenko Kharenko in July 2015, Verlanov spent almost six years at PwC in Ukraine. He received his Doctorate and Masters in Law degree from the National University Ivan Franko in Lviv, Ukraine.
