Firm Details

EQUITY is a leading Ukrainian law firm recommended for both transactional and dispute resolution experience.

The firm’s team has a profound 15+ years’ experience across practices, including corporate, banking and finance, insolvency and restructuring, tax, real estate and construction, antitrust, intellectual property, domestic and cross-border ligation, international arbitration, and white-collar crime.

EQUITY has worked for 1,000+ companies and individuals. The clients’ list includes industry leaders such as Arterium Corporation, Ferrexpo, AvtoKrAZ, NEST Corporation, Concorde Capital, AIS Corporation, Azovmash, Agroholding Mriya, Helen Marlen Group.The firm regularly defends the interests of Ukrainian top officials and high net worth individuals in pending investigations, including Volodymyr Omelyan (former Minister of Infrastructure), Hennadiy Trukhanov (Mayor of the City of Odessa) and Roman Nasirov (former Head of the State Fiscal Service).

Dispute resolution precedents

EQUITY team has acted for clients in 2 landmark cases in the Supreme Court of Ukraine which resulted in the new precedents in insolvency matters.In one case, the Supreme Court upheld EQUITY’s reasoning and ruled that the court may not adopt a formalistic approach in assessing the facts and taking a decision on the commencement of the insolvency proceeding.In another case, the Supreme Court upheld EQUITY’s reasoning and confirmed that the central bank had unlawfully declared one of Ukrainian banks insolvent.In 2019, Oleksandr Lysak and Taras Poshyvanuyk obtained 3 acquittals in the Supreme Court of Ukraine. This has proved the firm’s outstanding experience in white-collar crime matters, given that acquittals constitute only 1% of the decisions in criminal proceedings.

Thought leadership and social responsibility

EQUITY partners are thought leaders of the dispute resolution market of Ukraine. The firm co-organizes major legal forums under the auspices of the Ukrainian Bar Association, the Ukrainian Advocates Association and Yuridicheskaya Praktika.Following the years of in-depth research, EQUITY partners Viktor Barsuk, Oleksandr Lysak and Yaroslav Zeikan published 2 books: “Attorney’s Strategy and Tactics in Criminal Proceedings” and “Inadmissible Evidence in Criminal Proceedings”.As part of the social responsibility of the firm, EQUITY supported Leopolis Jazz Fest 2019, the Ukrainian Wakeboarding Federation and Legal High School, an innovative platform for online legal education in Ukraine.
