ANNOUNCEMENT ON COOPERATION WITH LeGran.TT LAW FIRM, UKRAINE

We hereby announce establishment of non-exclusive cooperation relationships with LeGran.TT Law Firm, a leading law firm specializing in maritime & shipping law.

Our law firms agreed on establishment of the cooperation relationships in practice areas which are core for both law firms – maritime & shipping law, international trade, arbitration and debt recovery, as well as, on a mutual support of the clients’ projects in PPP, corporate law and M&A, banking and finance law, tax law and customs law and intellectual property law.

We will not only support each other in relation to the clients’ projects, but also conduct marketing activities with purpose of integration into the business societies of both countries and attraction of the new clients. Extended opportunities for support of the projects in various jurisdictions will strengthen values of both companies for benefit of their present and potential clientele.

Cooperation of LeGran.TT and GÜR Law Firm will not be limited to the legal assistance only which is a usual format of cooperation of the law firms.

Tevfik GÜR, a managing/founding partner of GÜR Law Firm, emphasized that “Ukraine is a promising commercial partner of Turkey. For the moment, we are about to set up a free trade zone between Ukraine and Turkey, which will give a boost to increase the goods turnover and may well result in numerous interesting projects in such sectors as PPP, agriculture, M&A, processing industry, land and real estate, alternative energy sources etc.. In this respect, we believe in strong cooperation relationships with our young and competent Ukrainian partners. We will support LeGran.TT to integrate into the Turkish business society and we are intent to become closer to the Ukrainian business society.”

Tatyana Titarenko, a managing partner LeGran.TT, pointed out that “One of priorities of LeGran.TT for 2018 is to extend opportunities for our clientele in Ukraine as well as in the neighbouring “seafaring” countries. It is logically that we commence our cooperation with the countries of the Black sea basin, the most important country of which is Turkey. I am convinced that cooperation with such experienced partner as GÜR will allow us to strengthen our own expertise, extend opportunities for solution of business targets of our clientele and also guarantee high standards for supporting projects on the territory of both countries, and in the future, – in all key jurisdictions of the Black Sea region.”
