Comprehensive understanding of the subject is a must for the efficient lawyer’s practice. I believe that my working experience in large energy projects will be useful in my new position and bring value to the government agency. I am planning to focus on the development of the company’s corporate governance, compliance policies, and risks management” Valentyn Gvozdiy said.

The lawyer also emphasized that the new position will not affect his law practice.

The new position is a chance to make my contribution to the improvement of governmental company functioning; however, it should be considered as a complementary public activity to my main job. My work at GOLAW and the Clients I am working with is still my priority”, Gvozdiy added.

The corresponding decree #544-P, as of July 17, 2019, is published on the government website.
