Dmytro Marchukov focuses on international arbitration. Sources note his strategic approach, stating: "He has a goal-oriented and helicopter view; he can understand the consequences of each step," adding that he is a "strategic thinker."

Department profile by Avellum

AVELLUM has substantially developed its dispute resolution practice over the past year. We strengthened the practice by hiring a new Partner, Dmytro Marchukov and a Senior Associate, Serhii Uvarov in 2015. Both are the established practitioners on the Ukrainian dispute resolution market with experience that includes, inter alia, 14 international arbitrations and foreign litigations involving sovereigns and quasi-sovereigns.

Current profile of AVELLUM’s dispute resolution practice comprises the most unique and complex cases. In 2016, AVELLUM was successful in the first ever Ukrainian litigation concerning enforcement of almost USD600 million claims under the Mriya Agro Holding Eurobonds against 68 Ukrainian suretyship providers. We are currently acting for LSE listed Ferrexpo Plc in the litigations between its subsidiaries and the Deposit Guarantee Fund concerning the claims in the amount of over UAH 4.2 billion. In 2016, our team was involved, as a Ukrainian law expert, in five landmark investment arbitrations brought by the Ukrainian investors against the Russian Federation concerning expropriation of their investments in Crimea. 

We have broad experience of representing international and local clients on recovery of debt and enforcement of security in Ukraine. Clients also highly praise our expertise in fraud investigations, replacement of hostile management and efficient asset tracing.
