We are pleased to announce that Kinstellar is opening a new office in Kyiv, Ukraine.
Launching in Kyiv is part of our ambitious strategy to provide full-service coverage across Emerging Europe and Central Asia and follows the successful opening of our practice in Sofia, Bulgaria, last year and our expansion into Turkey, Serbia and Kazakhstan prior to that.
Our new office in Kyiv will enable us to extend our seamless coverage to clients active in Ukraine’s dynamic market and will further enhance our firm’s well-established reputation for exceptional, consistent service across Emerging Europe and Central Asia.
We have attracted a high-quality team which shall be led by Kostiantyn Likarchuk. Kostiantyn enjoys a solid reputation on the market and is a perfect match with our firm culture. He has extensive experience providing expert, practical high-quality advice to both businesses and to sophisticated international law firms.
Kostiantyn Likarchuk is a graduate of the Kyiv Institute of International Relations (Master of Laws, 2000) and Columbia Law School (LL.M. 2005).
Practising law in Ukraine since 1998, he is specialised in Dispute Resolution and M&A and also provides general corporate, competition, real estate and tax advice. Kostiantyn represents clients in Ukrainian civil, commercial and administrative courts of all instances and acts as counsel before arbitration tribunals in major arbitration forums (in particular, London, Stockholm and Paris). He has advised, along with some of the leading firms in the world, on all aspects of litigation strategies, including on numerous cases touching on common law jurisdictions (among others BVI, Cyprus, England, Jersey, New York). He acts, together with international counsel, for numerous Ukrainian businesses and investors in their cross-border litigation matters. Kostiantyn also regularly acts as an expert on Ukrainian law in foreign courts.
He was a co-founder of the Ukrainian law firm Avellum Partners which became in a short period of time one of the leading firms in Ukraine for Corporate/M&A, Banking & Finance and Dispute Resolution. Kostiantyn is listed as one of the country's top lawyers by the leading legal international directories Chambers Global, Legal 500 and IFLR 1000.
