Sayenko Kharenko announces the promotion of Oleksiy Koltok and Oleg Klymchuk to partners
Sayenko Kharenko celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, and for twenty years, it has been a market leader, raising the bar higher and higher each time. Our success is primarily attributed to the dedication and professionalism of our team, who have been assisting clients with complex, challenging, and ambitious projects for many years.
We are proud that even during the difficult period of war, our specialists continue to grow professionally. The promotion of Oleksiy Koltok and Oleg Klymchuk recognises their achievements and represents another important milestone in the firm’s development.
Oleksiy Koltok specialises in complex litigation in all business sectors. Over 20 years of his legal career, he has represented national and international clients in Ukrainian courts, defending their interests in commercial disputes, corporate conflicts, disputes with government and regulatory authorities, real estate and construction, debt settlement, bankruptcy, etc. He also has extensive experience in out-of-court dispute resolution, as well as consulting on property protection, settlement agreements and negotiations.
International rankings have repeatedly recognised Oleksiy’s professionalism. Over the past year, Chambers Europe 2023 and Chambers Global 2023 have recommended him in litigation.
As a partner, Oleg Klymchuk will focus on intellectual property, media, and technology projects. Oleg’s professional interests also include assisting clients with advertising and marketing projects, acquiring and protecting rights to IP/IT products, data protection, and transactional work in the technology sector.
Many international rankings confirm Oleg’s high level of expertise. In 2023, the World Trademark Review 1000 recognised him as one of the leading experts in the Bronze League.
“In terms of the modern history of Ukraine, twenty years is a lot. And we are proud that within this period Sayenko Kharenko has consistently demonstrated professionalism and reached the very top of the legal market. At the same time, we do not view it as the culmination of our journey but rather as an enhanced possibility to project our ideas outside and shape better market practices and standards.
It should be highlighted that our new partners grew from the inside. Oleksiy and Oleg have initially chosen Sayenko Kharenko as platform for their growth and development, and proved themselves as invaluable team players who realise their ambitions along with the Firm.
I am sure that we have even more challenges ahead, but with such a great team this journey becomes exciting and rewarding. Trusting Oleksiy and Oleg with partnership status is an evolutionary stage of our growth, and I strongly believe that it will make us even more resilient and dynamic, further cementing Sayenko Kharenko’s leading position in the Ukrainian market,”commented Nazar Chernyavsky, partner at Sayenko Kharenko.
We congratulate Oleksiy Koltok and Oleg Klymchuk on their recent promotion and wish them success in materialising their ambitions and reaching new heights together with all other partners of the Firm!
