Sayenko Kharenko’s legal expertise recognised with double win at CEE Legal Matters 2023 Deal of the Year Awards
Sayenko Kharenko won the CEE Legal Matters “CEE Deal of the Year” and “CEE Deal of the Year. Ukraine” awards at the 2023 Deal of the Year Awards Banquet on April 25 in Istambul.
The firm has taken these awards for the work on Ukraine’s consensual deferral of external debt worth over USD 25 billion.
Sayenko Kharenko’s partner Nazar Chernyavsky comments: “We are extremely proud to be involved in this landmark transaction that allows Ukraine to gradually reinforce the resilience of its debt profile. The support of public creditors and investors on this deal is paramount for the recovery of the Ukrainian economy. Our firm’s team working on the deal was led by partners Igor Lozenko and Anton Korobeynikov and included associate Oles Trachuk and junior associate Yevgen Koval. We thank the CEE Legal Matters team for organising a splendid ceremony and hope to see even more exciting deals coming from Ukraine next year.”
Finalists for the prestigious and peer-selected CEE Deal of the Year Awards were selected by a panel of highly-regarded private practitioners in each country, with winners determined by a second group of prominent legal experts from Central and Eastern Europe.
