Baker McKenzie's Kyiv office has assisted Monsanto - now a part of the Bayer Group - on the creation of a seed processing facility project in Ukraine.

According to Baker McKenzie, its work, which lasted more than five years, encompassed real estate, project financing, and regulatory and competition issues. The firm reports that "our lawyers conducted legal due diligence, advised on various legal issues relating to construction, land, project financing, regulatory permits and licenses, as well as assisted in obtaining AMC approvals for the project, and more."

According to Baker McKenzie, the seed processing facility officially opened on September 5, 2018, in Pochuiky, in Ukraine's Zhytomyr region. The facility reportedly provides 85 permanent and 220 seasonal jobs.

The Baker McKenzie team was led by Managing Partner Serhiy Piontkovsky, supported by Partners Hennadiy Voytsitskyi and Oksana Simonova and Associate Elmaz Abkhairova. Additional assistance was provided by Senior Associates Hanna Shtepa and Olha Mikheieva and Associates Anna Smyrnova and Khrystyna Knygynytska.
