Integrated legal protection of investment

Investments in the new markets are usually associated with high risks and a number of obstacles, from difficulties of interacting with host government and local authorities to the challenge of free capital and dividends repatriation. Gutovska & Partners provides integrated legal advice on protection of investment, which includes relevant contracts drafting, negotiations with host government, providing solutions for available public-private partnership, obtaining local incentives, development of a corporate structure of investment vehicle and its integration into Client's business. We use sophisticated legal mechanisms to ensure the safety of investment and minimisation of associated risks. Our Clients invest in developing markets such as those of Central Africa, the Middle East and Eastern Europe as well as in developed economies. The approach to integrated legal protection of investment is tailored individually in each case to mirror Client's aims in a particular jurisdiction. 


Gutovska provides legal solutions for cross-border acquisitions to protect Client's interest, negotiate and secure the best deal and obtain possible incentives in a host jurisdiction. Cross-border acquisitions often come with a need of enhanced due diligence, corporate planning and complex integration of acquired assets or business. We understand the need to optimise the acquisition and minimise the cost of post-deal integration, so we provide our Clients with bespoke solutions and advice on the transaction. We use the available benefits of bilateral investment treaties, free trade zones, foreign direct investment incentives and special trading regimes to guarantee the maximum effectiveness of the transaction. Gutovska also helps with participation in privatisation procedures and acquiring insolvent businesses in the region. We regularly keep our Clients updated with current opportunities to facilitate the growth of their  business.

Expansion to new markets

As our Clients grow their business, we provide complex legal advice and solutions on expansion to new markets. When a number of investment arbitration cases raises from year to year, geopolitical tensions endanger free repatriation of investment, and violence still can threaten normal business operations, it is a matter of paramount importance to secure proper legal protection of expansion to new markets from the beginning. Our services include cross-border corporate advice, structuring and development of legal foundation for a new market. We make sure that entering the new market runs smoothly and falls in line with current business. Whether operations in a new market will be independent or based on a joint venture with a local partner, we take all necessary precautions to protect the Client's interest and benefit from local and international regulation.

Private client, USA


With a new program of renewable energies support launched in Ukraine and the competitive electricity market opened, despite of a highly increased interest, I saw only a few foreign capital projects passed the assessment stage and moved to the capital injection over last 2 years.
