“We have used Oksana to advise on the English law aspects of a cross- boarder M&A transaction in relation to acquisition of the US based group of companies and, in particular, to advise in relation to the financing side of the transaction. We were very happy with Oksana’s services, as she was very responsive, diligent and professional throughout, advising our management team on various legal and commercial nuances of the finance documentation which had to be negotiated between the parties, involving multiple jurisdictions. We will gladly use Oksana again on other English law requirements of our growing international business and would highly recommend her services to other companies and businesses.” Sally Laycock, Finance Director, Net Media Planet Ltd

“Oksana made a great impression from our first contact with her. She’s been consistently responsive and well prepared. We found her advice very useful during the creation of our shareholder agreement and our recent issuance and redistribution of shares both of which she handled for us. As a start-up it’s been good to know we have legal advice we can rely on and I would not hesitate to recommend her.” Randon Burns, Managing Director, Silfra Translations Ltd

“Oksana, thank you so much for your help. The deal closed on Friday and we would not have been able to get closed without your expertise and timely attention to this deal.” Michael Roberts, RM Partners Law, Chicago, Illinois
