On September 25, 2019 the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine made a decision on appointing Pavlo Khodakovsky Deputy Minister of Finance of Ukraine. Therefore, Pavlo ceases to be Partner at Arzinger and leaves the company.
Pavlo Khodakovsky notes: “The proposal to take the position of Deputy Minister of Finance of Ukraine has been a challenge and yet a logical continuation of the practical experience I gained when working as a lawyer, attorney-at-law and partner at Arzinger at the head of Tax and Labor Law practices. I am happy to join the team of the Ministry of Finance and to contribute to the new development stage of Ukraine’s financial system”.
Timur Bondaryev, Founding & Managing Partner, comments on the appointment: “I understand and support Pavlo’s decision, even though a partner and head of several practices leaves our company. I am grateful to Pavlo for not only having developed the tax and labor law expertise at Arzinger over the past ten years, but also for having nurtured a reliable team of professionals. The country moves on, having started a new development round. It needs the best minds and powerful specialists to ensure its success by influencing the most important processes and mechanisms. Meanwhile, we remain good friends and, if necessary, will render help within our pro bono projects”.
