Sayenko Kharenko has earned a place in Tier 1 of the 2019 edition of World Tax, the comprehensive guide to the world’s leading tax advisory practices. For the third year in a row, Sayenko Kharenko is the only law firm in Ukraine to receive a top ranking position in the guide.
The publication highlights that Sayenko Kharenko’s tax team “provides one-stop shop advice for domestic and international clients”, advising “clients from sectors such as agriculture, banking, chemicals, FMCG, IT, mining, oil and gas and retail industries.” Clients laud the firm’s “strong knowledge and practically oriented approach.”
In terms of individual rankings, World Tax 2019 endorsed Svitlana Musienko, who recently joined Sayenko Kharenko as a partner, and counsel Vitaliy Odzhykovskyy. Within the framework of this year’s research, more than 5500 clients and 2500 practitioners were contacted for feedback to compile rankings and profiles of the most effective tax practitioners in more than 100 jurisdictions. Firms rated Tier 1 are considered to be the “go-to” firms in their jurisdiction and are praised by taxpayers and peers alike as market leaders in all key areas of tax: planning, transactions, transfer pricing, indirect taxes and litigation. They have specialists working with clients in all industries, and this is reflected by the size, spread and quality of transactions detailed in the questionnaires.
Partner Svitlana Musienko comments: “I am happy to have joined the amazing tax team at Sayenko Kharenko. The fact that this is the third time the firm’s clients and peers commended the team so highly proves that my first impression of my new colleagues as talented and experienced professionals was absolutely right. Together we can do even better to support our clients whenever they need us.”
