About me

As a member of the firm’s Corporate and M&A practice group, I help foreign businesses to operate in Belarus. I mainly specialise in corporate structures and reorganisations, M&A transactions and employment matters. I also have extensive experience with liquidation proceedings.

Professional highlights

Corporate law. I have experience in consulting clients on corporate procedural issues; managing registrations, reorganisations and liquidations; and supporting clients in communication with state authorities.

M&A. I have taken part in supporting prominent M&A and venture capital transactions. I understand the interests of the different parties to a transaction, and this helps me to support sellers and buyers at different stages of the transaction process, from transaction structuring and legal due diligence to post-closing arrangements.

Startups. My experience in corporate law, intellectual property, employment law, special legal regimes and other fields helps me in advising startup ecosystem players at different stages of their development. I also assist clients in implementing globally common legal instruments and practices in transactions governed by Belarusian law.
