Lawyers / Legal Advice Ukraine

LIST OF LAWYERS, KYIV.


DISCLAIMER: Use the list at your own risk.

I am a retired lawyer. God forbid you need a lawyer, especially in Ukraine.  But what we need is a list of lawyers 'just in case.'

I do not vouch for any of these lawyers.  The site's owners, moderators, their pets, and their children do not vouch for these lawyers. 

However, a list of lawyers (by their self-reported areas of practice) is below. 

Hopefully, those of you that have experience with any of these lawyers will note it here.  It's one of the checks-&-balances we have as expats to make sure we aren't being bamboozled by the same con artists.  90% of the lawyers I encountered in the U.S. were terrible, thieves, and con-men.  Imagine what it's like in Ukraine. 

So please: If you have experience with any of these firms, the good ones should be noted and the crappy ones should be noted.   

This site also has its own lawyers for some speciality services, like visas.  (If you have visa questions, ask a moderator here.)

If you have other legal matters - for example divorce, custody, arson, or public nudity - the list is below.   Tell us how it works out for you.   Keep the list updated and pertinent.  You never know when you're going to need a lawyer, and if you do, the list is here for you so you have some guideline from the experience of others.  The list also helps to keep lawyers' fees from getting too bloated (e.g. divorce has ranged from $200 - $10,000, with the $200 figure being the more realistic fee here).

If you know of some lawyers that are not listed below, go ahead and add them.

Feel free to add discussion about good and bad points to any of the shysters  ::)  that you've had contact with.   ???
In Russia we only had two TV channels. Channel One was propaganda. Channel Two consisted of a KGB officer telling you: Turn back at once to Channel One. Yakov Smirnoff

It looks like the list was copied and pasted from Legal 500 or another law firm database. Am I right?

Not quite but so what? If you had read all Reggie's posts you would have seen he mentioned the source and asked if he could post the list. Just to clarify, the source is none other than the US Embassy:

The above list comprised Kyiv law firms. Here are some regional law firms, again from the US Embassy website:

I just noticed that this list is somewhat outdated. For example Astapov Lawyers merged with a Russian law firm and now called Eterna Law.

I do not know how the embassy selected these law firms, but it seems they were just taken from some survey. I guess it would have better value for users of this forum to know that someone really checked these companies. So you may refer to:
(i) http://www.legal500.com/
(ii) http://pravo.ua/article.php?id=100112392 (top 50 Ukrainian law firms in 2015)

I have worked for 4 companies from the top 50 list and here what I can say from my experience:
Asters. Is always in the top 3. Expensive, professional, experienced, with many practices.
Integrites. I worked for this company almost 10 years ago after my graduation. From my experience at that time I cannot say it was a good law firm. However many years have passed, they pirated many lawyers and even partners in 2008 when law firms were laying off they staff due to the recession of 2008. So maybe now they are a way better.
Aleksandrov & Partners. Good professional lawyers specialized (and probably the number one) in real estate and since recently in agriculture. If you need legal services for your farm, then this company should be your choice.
Eterna Law. The company is specialized in international arbitration. There is rumor about inadequacy of their managing partner Astapov, but I personally know very well another partner managing international arbitration department and he is an extraordinary smart and professional lawyer.

Now I work for another one law firm from the top list but I will not promote it here.

In general, every law firm is specialized in some particular fields. Most of their fees start with USD 100 per hour. Often it is not worth to retain such expensive lawyer for simple matters like visas, registration of companies, buying a dwelling etc. They will charge 3 times as much as you would pay to a modest practitioner. Needless to say that before hiring someone it is always good to find information and recommendations about this person.

Wonder if anyone has knowledge, experience or two cents to throw in on this question.

-Person gets divorced, former husband moves to another apartment that he buys and puts in his mothers name.
 His name is the sole name on marital apartment when they bought when together (her name is registered there).
She makes mortgage payment for years, he declines to ever take his name off apartment (when asked.)
Apparently there is a 3 year window to contest division of property, now that window is closed.

What claim to Apt. does female have if any?
