Sayenko Kharenko is growing its London office. In September 2015, Eugenia Rebotunova joined the firm’s team as a senior counsel permanently based in the UK. Ms Rebotunova, who holds law degrees from Duke University School of Law and Kyiv State Taras Shevchenko University, is qualified to practice in Ukraine, Russia and the State of New York. For more than 20 years, she represented multinational companies working in a top NYC-based law firm and managed an Austrian real estate investment fund in Moscow.
Eugenia Rebotunova will support the firm’s clients based or active in the UK and Western Europe. She will also serve as a liaison between the company’s clients in the UK and the main office in Kyiv, Ukraine. With twenty years of legal expertise and experience in international investment and government relations, Eugenia will be the point of reference for the firm’s clientele and partners, promoting communication, providing support to the lawyers of the Kyiv office on the ground and coordinating activities on the projects in multiple jurisdictions.
Representative office of Sayenko Kharenko in the UK facilitates relationships with law firms, banks, financial institutions, key legal and business media and other major partners of the firm. The UK-based clients appreciate their lawyers being accessible in the same time zone and within close geographical proximity. For the Ukrainian clients of the firm, it is important to have their lawyers at the frontier of the international financial and business hub.
In addition to facilitating its clients’ business activities, Sayenko Kharenko via its London office promotes relationship between the United Kingdom and Ukraine. The firm takes an active part in the life of the British-Ukrainian Law Association, participates in the events of the British Ukrainian Society, brings Ukrainian governmental officials to speak to the UK audience and is otherwise vigorous in the Ukrainian community in Great Britain.
“We are happy to have Eugenia in our London team,” says Vladimir Sayenko, the partner at Sayenko Kharenko. “Her international experience, as well as Ukrainian law expertise make a perfect platform for the continuing development of the legal products and services we offer to our clients in the UK.”
