Tax advice on cross-border financing matters
Vulnerable to the effects of frequent global and local downturns, Ukraine’s banking and financial sector is fast-changing and heavily regulated. With in-depth knowledge of the sector and extensive experience across our core practices, we are perfectly placed to render top-notch legal service, helping our clients navigate their way through this challenging environment.
Avellum’s attorneys regularly advise a wide range of financial institutions, including international and domestic banks, investment firms, asset managers, insurers, brokers, stock exchanges and other financial institutions. They benefit from our capacity to advise both on aspects of their operations, and the products and instruments they offer to their clients.
We know how to set up efficient teams of lawyers from our core practice areas to advise banks and financial institutions on M&A transactions in the sector, financing, debt and equity placements, regulatory compliance, debt and corporate restructuring, taxation matters, and debt collection – usually accompanied by enforcement of guarantees/suretyships, as well as mortgages and pledges over assets located in Ukraine.
We advised the Black Sea Trade and Development Bank, Citi, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development, ING, Raiffeisen Bank International AG, Rabobank, and UniCredit.
