I am pleased to join the partners of Arzinger Law Firm I have been part of for more than 10 years, as well as the team, which I co-created before working as Head of Lviv Regional State Administration. The official service gives lawyers a chance to thank the State for its opportunities and to implement further reforms to improve the quality of people’s life. However, private practice makes it possible to render prompt assistance to clients in solving various tasks.”

Having worked as the Head of the Lviv Regional State Administration, Markian has gained important knowledge in the field of public private relations. Therefore, he will be able to take even better care of the interests of Arzinger’s clients and implement complex investment and infrastructure projects. Markian knows the market very well, so I am sure that our litigation, international arbitration, real estate and corporate law practices will soon experience a vigorous growth and further development.”
