Sayenko Kharenko and Yevgeniy Solodko join forces to create one of the strongest white collar criminal defence practices in Ukraine

Sayenko Kharenko and Yevgeniy Solodko have completed the process of merging their white collar criminal defence practices, which allowed us to create a practice, which gathered the best white collar criminal defence, anti-corruption compliance, and corporate investigations experts.

Yevgeniy Solodko is one of the leading criminal defence attorneys in Ukraine, being involved in a number of high-profile criminal investigations and trials and having unique experience of defending publicly exposed persons against unjustified charges. Apart from that, Yevgeniy has special expertise in the field of Canon law and law of historical and cultural heritage.

As of 10 July 2019, SK also welcomed to its team Zlata Simonenko, who specializes in dispute resolution, business security and defending clients within criminal proceedings on economic and corruption charges. She also has significant experience in preparing claims to the European Court of Human Rights in criminal cases. In addition to legal practice, she has been involved in working groups drafting the laws of Ukraine on National Police, National Anticorruption Bureau, Financing of political parties and Fighting against political corruption.

Partner Sergey Pogrebnoy comments: “Earlier this month, we welcomed Ario Dehghani, who has extensive experience in international compliance and forensic practice. Yevgeniy Solodko has tremendous experience in the field of local white collar criminal defence. The fact that such highly qualified experts are joining the SK team allows us to build Ukraine’s largest criminal law boutique inside of a full-service law firm.”

Partner Yevgeniy Solodko adds: “Joining SK will allow us to fully concentrate on our respective areas of experience in criminal defence and provide our clients with services of the highest international standards implemented within SK. Our knowledge and experience will allow the firm to significantly expand the expertise it provides. I am confident that this will be an example of successful and mutually beneficial synergy in the Ukrainian market.”
