I am a Ukrainian qualified lawyer holding PhD in International Law, specializing in Competition/Antitrust Law, having substantial teaching experience, varied interests and a cosmopolitan soul.
Born in Kirovograd, Ukraine, studied and lived in the UK, Holland and Belgium.
Previously I worked with the leading international law firms in Kyiv and in Brussels (Baker & McKenzie, Kiev office and King & Wood Mallesons SJ Berwin, Brussels office). I was also involved in the Charity Foundation "Happy Paw" dealing with stray dogs in Ukraine.
I have been a visiting lecturer at the annual ELSA Istanbul Summer Law School on Mergers & Acquisitions.
I like travelling and meeting people from different countries and cultures.
Currently I am based in Istanbul and would like to make this chaotic and beautiful city my real home.
