Doing business in Ukraine often involves being under the scrutiny of the law enforcement agencies and regulators. Sometimes this may have adverse consequences, such as criminal charges being brought against the company's management. Ukraine does not recognize corporate criminal liability, and therefore it is always the management who is at risk.

Competent and timely legal advice will help to avoid violations, evaluate potential risks or, where a criminal proceeding is already pending, to properly determine the right course of action and defense tactics, or even on how to get criminal charges dismissed before trial.
