About us

KOPARTNERS is a rapidly developing law firm that was founded in March 2011 by two partners - Olena Kibenko and Yaroslava Onika under the name Kibenko, Onika & Partners. In October 2017, nominal partners withdrew from the firm, and it was rebranded.

Currently, the firm  is a workplace for numerous lawyers and advicers, who specialize in different areas of law.

Partners of the firm are among the members of the Expert Councils under the ministries and other public authorities. They are actively involved in law making activities and research. In addition, they teach law in the leading Ukrainian and foreign law schools. This allows us to be the first to know about the upcoming amendments in the legislation, as well as to develop innovative and efficient solutions for even the most sophisticated cases.

Our partners and lawyers are permanent contributors to the reputable professional and scientific journals, magazines, and web-resources (MONDAQ, Ukrainian Journal of Business Law, Yuridicheskaya Praktika, etc).

We base our work on the principles that constitute the key elements of the firm’s philosophy:

  • Permanent Involvement in Research and Law-Making. We are among the first, who are aware of the future amendments in the legislation because we are actively involved in the law-making process.  This allows us to prevent and minimize any negative consequences for our clients affected by such amendments. We develop and lawfully lobby for the legislative decision, which can make doing business in Ukraine more effective.
  • Personal project involvement. Partners of the firm do not only serve as the managers for the clients’ projects but are personally involved in each stage of their implementation. They share their expertise and experience for the benefit of the clients.
  • Cost Efficiency. We run our business in a manner to maximally cut the cost of legal services that are not directly connected with servicing the clients, and apply for this purpose the latest business models and modern technical equipment. This allows our clients to pay only for high quality legal services.
