Jurvneshservice History

Jurvneshservice was established in the distant 1987, in the Soviet Union times, when the first “capitalist” laws that allowed private ownership and as a consequence production cooperatives came out. It was then that Jurvneshservice was officially registered with main specialization in advising in international trade. The first clients of Jurvneshservice were Ukrainian entrepreneurs. However, later with the borders’ opening and the dissolution of the Soviet Union Jurvneshservice began to advise foreigners who sought to invest in the Ukrainian economy.

Though with the development of Ukrainian law the types of specialization of Jurvneshservice lawyers were expanded, the main specialization – consulting in all spheres of international trade – was always maintained. This peculiar specialization has been implemented in such legal practices as international commercial arbitration, investment arbitration, expert testimony on Ukrainian law, recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments in Ukraine and Ukrainian judgments abroad and any other spheres where a foreign element can be present.

This feature is the consequence of the fact that the core of Jurvneshservice lawyers consisted always of graduates of the Institute of International Relations of Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv.
