The real estate and retail industries are two key areas of our practice. We were involved in the acquisition and construction of the biggest shopping malls in Ukraine. We know the bottlenecks and the most important issues that have to be brought up at the very beginning of any potential deal. 

  • Our experience

    You can trust us with everything from full support of construction, to drafting “bulletproof” lease agreements with tenants.

  • Our clients

    Many well-known Ukrainian and international developers, including Ukrainian Property Development, KDD Group, and Karavan Group, rely on our advice.
