L-assis have extensive and successful experience in advising our clients on Ukrainian and international commercial law, including drafting and negotiating various kinds of contracts, participation in negotiations and representation before different authorities.
Negotiations and Transactional Work
A pragmatic approach to negotiations. Our clients value us for our results and the productive contribution that the firm's lawyers make in conference rooms. Our vast experience allows us to help the client get a realistic assessment of risks, to focus on important issues and not to waste precious time on the hypothetical. This practical approach ensures that our clients spend less time in negotiations and, therefore, less money on fees.
Specialist staff and information synergies. We have staff with years of training in M&A work. That is why we can, for example, assign a highly experienced lawyer to each set of transaction documents which the seller receives, in a bidding process, from potential buyers. We are no strangers to working on several M&A projects at one time, sometimes in the same sector, and often see in short succession working drafts produced by many key market players. This keeps us up to date and on the cutting edge of market trends.
As market leaders in Khmelnytskyi for many years, we have accumulated a treasure trove of transaction documentation under the law of the key jurisdictions, primarily under English law. The expertise of our lawyers, many of whom were educated and trained in common law countries, allows them to translate in just hours a complex on-the-fly deal a client has made into a solid multipage legal document.
Legal due diligence
In due diligence we always keep in mind the end goal of the exercise. We seek to give our client a clear idea of the company's business model and key legal exposures, and arm the buyer with arguments in negotiating the distribution of risks with the seller. In our work for sellers, we recommend a disclosure strategy and prepare companies to implement it. We always remember the key rule in M&A disclosure, 'disclosure is protection, not exposure' And the results of our due diligence are always integrated into the negotiation strategy and transaction documents.
