The newly released 2018 edition of IFLR1000 ranks AVELLUM’s corporate and finance practices among the best in the country for five consecutive years. More specifically, the annual legal directory distinguished AVELLUM’s work in banking and finance, M&A, capital markets and project development.

What makes the results even more impressive is an excellent feedback from editors, as well as clients. They praised AVELLUM for having “market leading lending, capital markets and M&A specialists”, being “consistently involved in the market’s most significant deals”, and combining “technical expertise with extremely hard work”.

IFLR1000 traditionally listed Glib Bondar, senior partner, and Mykola Stetsenko, managing partner, among the most highly regarded experts in their respective fields. Counsels Igor Lozenko and Yuriy Nechayev, along with Taras Dmukhovskyy, senior associate, were named as rising stars in their practice areas.

AVELLUM’s clients lauded both partners for their effort and outstanding performance of their practices. Glib Bondar was referred to as “an excellent lawyer”, who is “practical and focused on unravelling the often difficult legal issues in Ukraine”. Other clients highlighted his “technical understanding and commercial awareness” that proves to be “a huge asset”. Mykola Stetsenko was described as “highly focused and responsive, professional, goal oriented, easy going”.

Capital markets and project development were introduced as separate categories only in 2018 edition of IFLR1000. However, despite their recent introduction, AVELLUM consistently holds strong positions in every present category.

Additionally to being recognised amongst the leaders in corporate and finance practices in 2017 edition of IFLR1000, in 2016 AVELLUM was named Ukraine Law Firm of the Year 2016 at the IFLR European Awards ceremony. IFLR European Awards acknowledge the leading law firms in Europe for advising on the most complex and innovative international transactions in the areas of debt, equity and capital markets, project finance, restructuring, and M&A.

The IFLR1000 law firm rankings are based on three key criteria: transactional evidence, peer and client feedback. The publication covers over 120 jurisdictions worldwide.
