Russia is waging a barbaric war in Ukraine. The whole world is holding its breath at the determination of the Ukrainian people. We are in admiration of the courage of the authorities and the Ukrainian soldiers, and watch with attention and respect the efforts that have already begun to rebuild the country and the cities and businesses that have been destroyed.


As sympathetic Poles to our Ukrainian sisters and brothers, but also as competent advisors, lawyers serving global business in Poland and around the world, we have decided to join these efforts and assist Ukrainian businesses in their efforts to rebuild the infrastructure and the destroyed market in Ukraine, but also to assist with their business relocation decisions and efforts to finance necessary projects.


As a sign of our new strategy and solidarity with Ukraine, we have decided to establish a Ukrainian Practice (Ukrainian Desk).

We have been recruiting lawyers and advisors from Ukraine for over a month, and recently decided to invite our first Ukrainian Partner, Advocate Markiyan Malskyy, PhD, DSc in Law, to join our Firm.


Markiyan will lead the Ukrainian Practice / Ukrainian Desk, but also, as a respected international arbitrator and practitioner, will join the work of our renowned International Disputes and Arbitration Practice led by Marek Jeżewski, PhD.

Markiyan is a renowned expert in international commercial and investment arbitration. Prior to joining Kochański & Partners, he led the international dispute resolution practice at Arzinger, one of Ukraine’s largest law firms, for over 15 years, heading its Western Ukrainian branch office in Lviv.


He has extensive experience in managing litigation processes for the resolution of corporate, contractual, sales and services, real estate development, financing and real estate trade disputes in the construction sector, as well as leading projects in the mergers and acquisitions practice. He has been involved in the resolution of over 300 disputes, including under the ICSID, ICC, SCC, UNCITRAL, LCIA, VIAC, FAI, VCCA and ICAC (Kyiv) rules.


Markiyan is also socially engaged. In 2019, the President of Ukraine appointed him to serve as the Governor of the Lviv Region, and currently he serves as the Honorary Consul of Austria in LvivHe has authored 4 books, and more than 350 scientific papers, articles and commentaries. He is regularly appointed as an arbitrator and recommended in several international rankings and, above all, by major arbitration institutions.
