Associate Anna Guillard Sazhko (Paris-International Arbitration) was appointed to the board of the Ukrainian Arbitration Association for a period of three years, following a vote casted on November 19, 2018. Located in Kyiv, the board consists of nine arbitration practitioners from various law firms around the world, several of which, including Shearman & Sterling, conduct high-profile work for Ukraine.
The association aims to promote Ukraine and Kyiv as a seat of arbitration, build interest and knowledge of international arbitration in Ukraine and enhance communication and cooperation with practitioners worldwide. The association’s recent initiatives include forming a working group to develop rules for ad hoc arbitration in Ukraine, running an arbitration program for students and hosting conferences and seminars.
Shearman & Sterling looks forward to contributing to the development of arbitration in Ukraine.
