Ukrainian law firm Sayenko Kharenko set to open London office


A major Ukrainian law firm is set to open a new London office as it looks to expand and move closer to client decision making centres.

The new Sayenko Kharenko office will be headed by Ukrainian qualified lawyer Iryna Nagayets who previously worked in the London office of Baker & McKenzie.

The firm is looking to enhance the quality of its service to its European client base at its new London hub in Grosvenor Gardens, SW1.

It has also launched a new practice of Government Relations which will be headed by Andy Hunder.

Sayenko Kharenko Managing Partner, Vladimir Sayenko, said: “Sayenko Kharenko’s presence in London brings us closer to our client’s decision-making centre.

“The new GR practice will assist clients treading on the challenging terrain of government relations in Ukraine and will ensure indigenous insight into Ukraine-specific issues and markets, facilitate the steady dialogue with decision-makers at the local, national and international levels and offer extensive on-the-ground expertise.”

Sayenko Kharenko is an internationally recognised full-service law firm based out of the Ukraine.

This year the firm won a trio of awards recognising it as the law firm of the year in the Ukraine in the Who’s Who Legal European Awards 2013, the FLR European Awards 2013 and the Legal Awards Yuridicheskata Practika 2013
