GOLAW’s attorneys have over a decade of experience with transactions of project finance and syndicated loans, debt restructuring, foreclosures and similar projects in the banking and finance sector. Attorneys of our banking and finance practice are representing the largest Ukrainian and foreign banks on debt recovery in court proceedings as well as out-of-court settlements. The distinctive strategy of the firm in such matters is to provide advice starting with enforcement of a levy on debtor’s assets and the sale of such assets (real estate, shares, movable property etc.) up to recovery of the client’s funds.
Analysis of a debtor’s corporate structure and risk assessment is an important stage of financing and requires appropriate competencies of advisors structuring the transaction. This is particularly true if the borrower’s group of companies has a foreign element. GOLAW attorneys advise banks and private creditors on complete disclosure of the borrower’s corporate structure and information on final beneficiaries. Among the firm’s successfully handled matters is consultancy on trade and export finance with state export credit agencies and project finance transactions with international financial institutions such as the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), the International Finance Corporation (IFC) and the World Bank.
