We are pleased to announce that AVELLUM was recognised as “Ukraine Tax Firm of the Year” and “Ukraine Transfer Pricing Firm of the Year” by International Tax Review (“ITR”). The prestigious European Tax Awards ceremony was held at the Savoy Hotel in London on 18 May 2017.

These awards repeatedly prove AVELLUM’s ability to support the most challenging and complex tax and transfer pricing projects and to offer innovative and practical solutions. Moreover, they reaffirm our position as one of the most highly rated and recommended tax and transfer pricing advisors in Ukraine.

AVELLUM was regularly nominated for both awards by ITR since 2013. Furthermore, we are the first independent Ukrainian law firm that managed to obtain tax, as well as transfer pricing awards at the same time since 2009.

Mykola Stetsenko, Managing Partner of AVELLUM, commented on the awards: “We are delighted to be named as the Ukraine Tax and Transfer Pricing Firm of the Year. We established our tax practice as part of the overall strategy to provide clients with excellent services in all practice areas. Today, we once again reaffirmed our team’s ability to provide top legal services to our clients in tax and transfer pricing matters they may encounter in Ukraine. Our clients constantly rely on us whenever our in-depth expertise and out-of-the box thinking are required.

Vadim Medvedev, Senior Associate of AVELLUM, further added: “We have an excellent track record on transactional and advisory matters alongside with high recognition for assistance in tax controversy. It proves that we can help our clients to properly identify and mitigate the risk of tax disputes and to protect their interests in courts if one arises. We highly appreciate the trust and continuous support of our clients. At the end of the day, clients’ satisfaction defines our success”.

It should also be noted that a year ago AVELLUM became part of the winning team of the European Tax Restructuring Deal of the Year along with the leading international law firms White & Case and Weil Gotshal & Manges for advising on the ground-breaking restructuring of thirteen sovereign and sovereign-guaranteed Eurobonds with an outstanding principal of approximately USD15 billion.

The European Tax Awards takes place annually since 2005 and seeks to recognise the leading international tax professionals across the Europe. The firms are compared based on key criteria, such as size, innovation, and complexity of their transactions.


Established in 1990, the ITR is the leading global publisher of prestigious tax and legal materials recognised by industry experts. To determine the winners of the European Tax Awards, the ITR conducts an in-depth research from a variety of sources. This includes, but not limited to, submissions from firms, consultations from a large number of tax advisers and lawyers, tax executives and in-house counsels to identify and reward the firms for the most ground-breaking work.

We bring the most advanced Western legal techniques and practice, which, coupled with our first-hand knowledge, broad industry experience, and unparalleled level of service, will help our clients achieve best results in their business endeavours.
