On 5 October, the official “Lawyer of the Year 2018” award ceremony was held within the Annual All-Ukrainian Independent Competition organized by the Ukrainian Bar Association (the “UBA”). This year, the ceremony was conducted for the fifth time. The competition is aimed to select the best representatives of the legal profession, who properly protect interests of their clients, are recognized by the public and have significantly contributed to the development of the institute of legal profession in Ukraine.
This year, our lawyers received 6 awards in different nominations:
- Dmytro Alexandrov – agriculture and land law, corporate law;
- Oksana Kryzhanivska – foreign investments;
- Oleksandr Sydorenko – anti-raider practice;
- Oleksandr Ruchko – commercial law and process;
- Oleg Shevtsov – IT law.
There was a two-stage candidate selection process. The first stage was an online voting, where peers and everyone interested could participate in choosing the winner. Afterwards, a qualified expert commission analyzed the work of nominees for the past year and selected the best lawyers among leaders in each practice. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to everyone who voted for our colleagues during the first stage of the competition, thus making it possible to go into the second round. Without your support, we wouldn’t make it!
