Sayenko Kharenko received a Band 1 ranking in the Banking & Finance category for the eleventh consecutive year.

Sayenko Kharenko’s Competition/Antitrust practice also secured a Band 1 ranking, a distinction the practice has received since the category’s inception five years ago. As one of the only two firms to receive a Band 1 recognition in this practice area, Chambers acknowledges the firm’s “excellent” team for “advising on large-scale contentious and non-contentious matters.”
The Guide as well honours the firm’s Restructuring/Insolvency practice for a sixth consecutive year with a Band 1 ranking. The firm’s “outstanding” team is renowned for its “expertise in complex debt restructuring and financing mandates, acting on behalf of both lenders and creditors.” Clients note the “team's proactive approach and experience”, giving “the highest score to the level of innovation the firm brings to the market.” “The team is extraordinarily supportive: they are available 24/7," a Client says, adding: "They really pursue goals and bring changes."
