Upon the results of this year’s ranking of legal departments of national companies, the legal department of SE NPC Ukrenergo was recognised as the best in the area of energy and natural resources.
The ranking “50 Best Legal Department of Ukraine” was founded in 2013 by the newspaper “Legal Practice”.
The methodology of this ranking is based on the assessment of each legal service in view of qualitative (reputation and expertise) and quantitative (volume of performed tasks during a year, namely the number of agreements, claims, court cases, number of staff lawyers, etc.) indicators.
“Dynamic changes in the Ukrainian economy are inevitably influencing the requests of businesses to lawyers. The results of our ranking “50 Best Legal Department of Ukraine” confirm that a modern successful lawyer is not only a highly competent professional, but also a reliable business partner. Thus, the ability to forecast and adjust to innovative trends constitutes one of the key prerequisites for the efficiency of modern lawyers,” said Rustam Kolesnik, the chief editor of “Legal Practice”.
“Ukrenergo is a leader of changes among state-owned enterprises. The company was one of the first to implement a corporate governance reform, establish a compliance office, participate in the OECD projects and cooperate closely with European transmission system operators, as well as leading financial organisations. This is a qualitatively new experience and expertise for the company and great opportunities for the professional development and self-realisation of employees,” noted Maksym Yurkov, Chief Legal Officer at SE NPC Ukrenergo.
