An outstanding knowledge of corporate law. Legal 500 EMEA 2017

LCF’s track record counts a number of successfully resolved complex and high-profile eminent corporate disputes in an array of industries. We were the first law firm to advise on new types of corporate disputes, previously unseen in Ukraine, including challenging a squeeze-out by using freshly implemented procedural measures both at the preparatory and final stages of the ownership restructuring process.

We apply a multidisciplinary approach in defending our clients’ corporate rights by combining judicial protection and collaboration with dedicated state authorities and international institutions. In advising on large-scale M&A transactions LCF’s focus is on identifying and resolving any conflicting issues during the transaction, while preventing and minimising any potential risk of dispute in the future.
