EPAM Attorneys Assisted One of the Largest Producers of Dairy Products in Europe in the Divestment of Its Russian Subsidiary  

Legal support included advising on the transaction structure, preparation of a package of transaction documents, as well as assistance with signing and closing the deal. Along with a tailored share transfer agreement and related documentation, additional legal instruments were utilised, such as option rights and rights of first refusal, restrictive covenants and guarantee instruments.

The deal was time sensitive and required thorough legal elaboration to ensure the protection of the client’s interests while taking into account the current geopolitical environment, while the buyer being a private investor.

The team working on the project was led by Partner and Head of the European Desk Ilona Zekely and included Counsel Elena Agaeva, Senior Associate Ksenia Firsova, Junior Associates Arina Nikulushkina and Marina Petrova, and Paralegal Anna Sargsyan.
