March 1st, 2021 Oleg Chayka joined Arzinger law firm’s team as a Partner and the Head of “Tax / Deals and International Taxation” practice

Oleg Chayka is a well-known  expert in tax matters, including tax disputes, deals and international taxation, who is acknowledged in Ukraine and other jurisdictions and who is regularly featured in Ukrainian and international rankings.


As a leading expert in tax matters, Oleg participated in landmark international arbitration cases that involved consideration of complex tax issues.


Oleg has unique experience in deals and international taxation obtained when he was advising clients in Canada, Malta and Ukraine on tax matters. This unique experience is now very relevant in the context of recent implementation of the international tax initiatives that are part of the BEPS plan and contemplated introduction of the controlled foreign company rules in Ukraine in 2022. 


Prior to joining Arzinger, Oleg has made astonishing career in one of the B4 firms both in Ukraine and abroad and obtained unique experience of working with international and local clients. Amongst others, Oleg’s experience includes developing bills and other regulatory initiatives.


“I am glad to become part of the Arzinger team. For me, it is both great responsibility and a new step in my professional development. I am sure that my knowledge and client-oriented approach will help expanding the clients’ portfolio and the range of services offered by Arzinger. Unique tax solutions developed by me will enable the Ukrainian owners to efficiently adapt their business structures and models to the new tax realities,” - comments his appointment Mr. Chayka.


“Over the last 10 years, international tax has undergone dramatic change; and Ukraine also follows the global trend – tax amnesty, BEPS, etc have long ago become subject to daily talks of all our clients (private and corporate, local and international). For Arzinger, it is very important to remain the primary source of high quality and pragmatic business-advice for our clients. Therefore, I am very pleased to welcome Oleg Chayka in our team – great expert acknowledged by the market!


The list of the priority tasks and goals for Oleg includes development of the market presence and the visibility of the firm, as far as the deals tax is concerned, and also by means of the development and implementation of new tax solutions. For many years Arzinger has actively gained its pace at the market of tax consulting and tax disputes, and we have succeeded in becoming one of the unquestionable leaders of this market. Arzinger is one of the few Ukrainian law firms which understand the importance of the strong tax practice that not only would provide services for its current clients, but also would itself generate clients and projects for other practices of the firm by means of, in particular, high demand on the services of international taxation and structuring. Both expertise and experience of Oleg will be unquestionable for the affirmation of Arzinger as the leading player on the tax advisory market,”- comments Timur Bondaryev, Managing and Founding Partner of Arzinger.
