“We are very selective when it comes to the participation in ratings. We also position ourselves in the market not as a separate law firm, but as a law practice that is an integrated part of the leading international multiservice consulting firm. Our strength and competitive advantage is a synergy with other functional areas: tax, finance, valuation, audit, and consulting in various fields. This allows us not only to carry out a “classic” legal work, but first and foremost, to perform large-scale and complex cross-disciplinary projects. This, in particular, refers to Ukrzaliznytsia project featured in this year’s ranking. This project involved the engagement of several Deloitte teams from different countries. At the same time, our participation and recognition in some of The Legal 500 ranking’s categories selected by us is an important acknowledgement of our lawyers by the clients and experts,” said Dmytro Pavlenko, Director, Head of Legal Practice at Deloitte Ukraine, PhD in Law, lawyer.
