Sayenko Kharenko has acted as Ukrainian legal counsel to BNP Paribas, JP Morgan and Raiffeisen Bank International, the joint lead managers of Ukraine’s record-setting EUR 1.25 billion Eurobond issue.

Partner Nazar Chernyavsky commented: “We are delighted to have been a part of one of the most
prominent capital markets transaction by Ukraine to date. Ukraine has finally tapped the Euro securities market and increasingly high demand for the Ukrainian debt proved the growing confidence of diverse investors in the country’s long-term potential.” Sayenko Kharenko’s team was led by Igor Lozenko and included associates Oles Trachuk, Yurii Dmytrenko, and junior associates Oleksandra Maksymenko and Oleksandr Motin.
