B.C. Toms & Co is presently celebrating its 30th anniversary in Ukraine as the first law firm to come from abroad to open an office in Kyiv. During that time, we have successfully completed many of Ukraine’s milestone projects, including the first true Project Financing in Ukraine (for oil and gas exploration and development, including wells, processing facilities, pipelines, railroad construction, etc., which was funded by the EBRD).

We have successfully handled the legal work for many other major matters, including:

– The first IPO in Ukraine (to raise approximately USD 500 million by a Ukrainian energy company’s listing on the London Stock Exchange);

– The largest acquisition in Ukraine in the Ukrainian energy and natural resources sectors;

– The largest bilateral investment treaty arbitration concerning Ukraine (at the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague);

– The largest sale in the agricultural sector by a major foreign investor of a Ukrainian farming business (for which we earlier handled all legal work for its creation, operations and financing); and

– A highly-complex corporate raid defense, simultaneously involving over 50 related proceedings.

Our legal practice is based on our commitment to provide client service of the highest quality. We are ranked in the 2019 independent Kyiv Post Survey of Law Firms among the top three law firms in Ukraine.

We have had numerous articles published on Ukrainian law, including the legal sections of the ICC book Doing Business in Ukraine, which we  can provide copies of, that identify significant problems present in Ukrainian law that investors should be aware of.
