I appear as an expert witness in international commercial arbitration, international investment arbitration and state courts. My field of expertise includes Ukrainian law, public international law and private international law.
In Ukrainian law, the area of my expertise covers civil law, commercial law, corporate law, conflict-of-laws and litigation before different branches and levels of the judiciary in Ukraine. I am admitted to the Ukrainian Bar as of 2006.
In international investment law, my area of expertise covers questions of jurisdiction and standards of investment protection. I have spent four years in empirical and normative research of contract interpretation in investment treaty arbitration at the University of Oslo and was awarded a doctoral degree for the thesis on the same subject. I understand the interplay between various concepts of international investment law and investor-state contracts. I have practical experience in investment treaty arbitration where BITs with Ukraine as a contracting party were applied.
I have completed LL.M. programme at the Stockholm University in the field of international commercial arbitration, a post-graduate course in international trade law of the International Training Centre of the ILO, the University of Turin and the University Institute of European Studies (IUSE), as well as a 5-year legal training at the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy in Ukraine.
