Nazar Kulchytskyy & Partners Law Firm

We specialize in protection of interests of our clients in relations with the state agencies, in particular:

We represent the interests of private entities in litigation with public authorities. Thus, two main areas of our practice are cases of administrative proceedings and cases concerning the protection of property rights.

It is not always possible to achieve the restoration of violated rights at the national level, and then the only opportunity to restore justice is to appeal to the European Court.

The great experience allows us to ensure the effective representation of the client’s interests starting from the assessment of the perspectives of applying to the European Court to the full enforcement of the decision made in client’s favour.

In the section criminal law on the main page and in the section «Practice»

Most people who are faced with law enforcement agencies for the first time believe that the innocent person has nothing to hide, and therefore he or she does not need legal aid. However, criminal proceedings are a parallel reality, in which generally accepted logic does not apply. No matter what those or other events in the real world are, it matters only if they can be used against you.
