...service and commercial awareness were very good

Chambers Europe, 2022

Alesya Pavlynska has more than 16 years of experience in Corporate/M&A, with focus on transactions, corporate restructurings and shareholders’ agreements.  

In the past, apart from M&A transactions and day-to-day corporate projects, Alesya also co-chaired German Desk and chaired Employment at one of the top-5 law firms in Ukraine, supporting foreign investors.

As part of both corporate and employment teams, she also handled internal investigations, controversial and complex dismissals of the C-suite executives, worked on management incentives programs and corporate governance projects for subsidiaries of multinationals.

Alesya is the Head of the Legal Committee and Board Member at AHK Ukraine – German-Ukrainian Chamber of Industry and Commerce and is engaged in active liaison with the DACH countries’ embassies towards building robust inter-country business cooperation and mutual development.
