ARZINGER STATEMENT

Arzinger has lately become the target of repeated smear campaigns, related to external events.

Thus, the recent wave of speculations arose immediately after our former partners, Vitaly Kasko and Maksym Cherkasenko, declared their political ambitions.

We respect the choice of our former colleagues, but we also emphasize their complete independence. We reiterate that opinions expressed by our former employees are their personal attitudes and do not reflect Arzinger’s stance.

We adhere to keeping business and politics apart, while remaining active in a great number of socially important initiatives.

We promote openness and exceptional ethics and stand guard over the interests of our clients and society. During the 14 years in the market we ran a lot of legal cases and advised numerous companies in various sectors in Ukraine as well as in the EU, the USA, and the CIS. We highly appreciate the confidence our clients place in us and are proud of being recommended as a reliable and professional partner. Our reputation is also confirmed by our high positions in many international legal rankings.

Arzinger eagerly supports the initiatives aimed at reforming the national economy and developing civil society. In particular, our employees are actively involved in task forces drafting important bills. These innovations have already yielded tangible results, such as significant reduction of corruption in the pharmaceutical sector due to the industry deregulation and the transfer of procurement of medicines and medical devices to the relevant international organizations (WHO, UNICEF, etc.), greater transparency and predictability of antimonopoly regulation as well as of tax and anti-corruption legislation.

We have always been an active member of professional and expert associations, where many of our colleagues have leading positions (International Bar Association, Transparency International Ukraine, European Business Association, American Chamber of Commerce, Ukrainian Businessmen Union, etc.). A separate area of Arzinger’s corporate social responsibility is its regular contributions in support of charities and social initiatives.

We emphasize that Arzinger chooses its projects and clients carefully, always acting within business ethics and applicable law.

We urge everyone to respect confidentiality, which is the core principle of the legal profession, and to avoid identifying attorneys with their clients. Non-compliance with this principle is contrary to the rule of law and negates the very essence of the legal profession.

We call everyone to check the accuracy of spread information and to avoid associating Arzinger with activities of its clients and former employees.

We will stand our ground and continue to support our clients as well as to contribute to improvements in the legal field in Ukraine.
