Last Updated: 6 April 2011

Originally published April 5, 2011

On March 31, Legal 500 published its rankings for the year 2011. According to this highly reputable and internationally-recognised source, Vasil Kisil & Partners Law Firm was ranked as a first tier firm in Ukraine in Dispute Resolution and Real Estate and Construction.

According to the publication that, in turn, quotes independent sources, "the firm meets the ‘highest standards of practice’ and is ‘the best Ukrainian law firm by a distance, and the only one providing a truly global service to global clients’. ‘It is made up of extremely well recognised practitioners and academics, and is clearly incredibly well versed in Ukrainian law, as well as international arbitration’. Managing partner Oleg Makarov, the ‘incredibly thoughtful, commanding and impressive’ litigation head Oleksiy Filatov, international arbitration specialist Tatyana Slipachuk and Yaroslav Tekyluk all come highly recommended".

Legal 500 also says: "Vasil Kisil & Partners has an excellent reputation for real estate and construction work, both on the non-contentious and contentious side, where it is backed up by one of the country’s top disputes teams. Oleg Alyoshin heads the team, which is advising Seven Hills on the Park Avenue project in Kiev, which comprises five multi-storey mixed-use buildings. The firm also represented the DIY store operator, Leroy Merlin, on its expansion projects in Ukraine. The firm has also been very active in the agribusiness sector".

In Banking, Finance and Capital Markets, "Vasil Kisil & Partners impresses with some excellent feedback and impressive transactions. The ‘highly knowledgeable’ and ‘dynamic’ Denis Lysenko heads the team, which is considered ‘one of the best in Ukraine’. ‘In comparison with other Ukrainian law firms, this firm stands out for its excellent knowledge of Ukrainian law, combined with experience on international deals and an ability to deliver high-quality advice tailored for the matter’. Highlights included advising Delta Bank on the acquisition of a $390m loan portfolio and underlying security of Ukrprombank."

Oleksiy Filatov is also referred to as a leader of a "very strong" Intellectual Property team. In this practice, Legal 500 recommends Yaroslav Teklyuk, the firm’s partner.

The source mentions VKP’s "far reaching tax practice, with managing partner Oleg Makarov and litigation head Oleksiy Filatov the main contacts on the contentious front, and the ‘very good’ Denis Lysenko on the non-contentious side".
