Former Sayenko Kharenko Partner Yaroslav Ognevyuk – together with Tetiana Ohneviuk – has set up a new law firm in Ukraine: the Ambassadors law firm.
According to Ognevyuk, a part of the Sayenko Kharenko IP team – which he previously led – has joined the new firm alongside his move (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on October 31, 2023). “The Ambassadors team will continue to provide high-quality legal and patent services in the field of intellectual property, we will be legal ambassadors of brands, innovations, and technologies. At the same time, Partner Tetiana Ohneviuk will become an ambassador of justice and Head the Dispute Resolution practice with a focus on non-standard and complex litigations in commercial, civil, and administrative proceedings.”
Prior to setting up Ambassadors, Ognevyuk spent almost five years with Sayenko Kharenko, where he was the Head of the IP practice. Before that, he spent over 12 years with Doubinsky & Osharova, two years with the Patent Office of Ukraine, and, earlier still, two years in-house with Educational Book.
Partner Tetiana Ohneviuk was also part of Sayenko Kharenko, as an Associate, between 2019 and 2021. Earlier, she spent six months as an Associate with Doubinsky & Osharova. She is currently an Associate Professor of the Department of Civil Law at the University of Customs and Finances, since 2020.
