"Silvano Fashion", LLC (official distributor of TM Milavitsa in Ukraine)

Our company has been in cooperation with LBM (Legal Bureau ‘Maximum’) since 2010. As an official importer of TM Milavitsa, Aveline, Alisee and Lauma, we started communication with experts of LBM (Legal Bureau ‘Maximum’) relating to import issues (duties, customs value, customs clearance), trademark protection in Ukraine, obtaining permits under ​​migration law for foreign employees of our company. Having been convinced in competence of lawyers, we decided to arrange an all-inclusive legal service, which includes now legal support to issues of current business activity, drawing up commercial agreements and counselling employees of the company on any legal issues.

In the ongoing operation, it is worth noting such qualities as promptness, attentiveness and systematic approach to work by the lawyers of LBM (Legal Bureau ‘Maximum’). To their undoubted merits, I should refer successful outcome of dispute between our company and the fiscal service of Ukraine concerning illegal decision notice to us from this body.

Our cooperation with LBM (Legal Bureau ‘Maximum’) is very effective and mutually beneficial. We wish them professional success and prosperity.

Yours faithfully,
Director General

"Adecco Ukraine”, LLC

We have been in collaboration with LBM (Legal Bureau ‘Maximum’) since February 2013 and me personally, with the director Tatyana Sotnyk, since Nov 2013. Our company is one of the leading HR solution provider in Ukraine that specializes, in particular, in outstaffing/ outsourcing and recruitment of personnel. Among the professionals, who we attract to work in Ukraine, some of them are foreigners and we have to provide them with all necessary documents to legally stay and work in the territory of this country.

To this effect, we started cooperation with the LBM (Legal Bureau ‘Maximum’) in 2013. Work and residence permits, registration of residence, counselling for migration law issues - all these services we have received and keep receiving in due time. Involvement of "Adecco Ukraine" employees into the above processes is reduced to the baseline. To the benefit of foreign professionals, the lawyers of LBM (Legal Bureau ‘Maximum’) fluently speak English which makes it easy to directly communicate with them.

Qualitative and attentive approach towards achieving the initial goals of cooperation between our companies made it possible to assess reliability of LBM (Legal Bureau ‘Maximum’). Therefore, we have expanded our collaboration in decision of other legal issues, which arise in the course of activity of our company. It concerns endorsement of contracts, advice on labor, civil, customs law, as well as effecting registration activities associated with changes in the company.

When we started collaborative work with LBM (Legal Bureau ‘Maximum’) in 2012, we wanted to take a closer look at a new partner, as far as the policy in choosing a counterparty in our company is quite tough. Recommendations and test period were coped with honor by the LBM (Legal Bureau ‘Maximum’). Our tasks concerning registration of licenses, official recording of changes in the state registers, counseling and solution of migration issues for our staff were fulfilled clearly and promptly.

Having been convinced in competence and professionalism of LBM (Legal Bureau ‘Maximum’) employees, in 2015 we arranged a subscription legal service. We believe that cooperation with this legal bureau is the key to our security and tranquility in the course of business of our company.

The best of luck to LBM (Legal Bureau ‘Maximum’)!

In July 2014 when entering the territory of Ukraine through the airport of Borispil, I was denied an entry to Ukraine for the subsequent 3 years. I was very much shocked by the decision of the State Border Service of Ukraine, which decision I found illegal. On given recommendations, I referred to LBM (Legal Bureau ‘Maximum’), in particular to an advocate Tatyana Sotnyk. Her professional work, as well as the work of her colleague Julia Skotar to appeal against the decision of the State Border Service in the District Administrative Court of Ukraine gave rise to a positive result. The initial decision was annulled. The ban on the entry to Ukraine was repealed. The total process took about 3 months. This company is highly recommended!

Our company is an official distributor of medical products on the territory of Ukraine, in particular of pills for throat “BOKACEПT”.

We referred to LBM (Legal Bureau ‘Maximum’) upon recommendation which company’s experts are known for being great specialists in customs clearance of goods (when being imported) and professional providers of legal support to distribution business.

Given the fact that business operation with pharma drugs in Ukraine is extremely complicated, advertising of medicines is associated with a number of restrictions, we could not go without proper legal assistance over all these issues. Our collaboration takes the form of subscription legal service, the advantage of which is prompt response to our requests. We appreciate integrated approach that allows us to receive all necessary support to our business in Ukraine from a single company, which is very convenient.

I saw an ad about the LBM (Legal Bureau ‘Maximum’) on Internet as a company that provides a full range of services for obtaining permission to immigrate to Ukraine based on investments brought into the economy of this country. I got a competent detailed consultation, and afterwards entrusted the company to support the entire process from the registration of my company, bringing in investments in the amount of $ 100 000, registration of such investment to obtaining an immigration permit as well as permit for permanent residence in Ukraine. All the work was performed exactly as it had been originally agreed. I have recommended my acquaintance businesspersons to make the use of LBM (Legal Bureau ‘Maximum’) services. In addition, I keep getting advice on the application of the Ukrainian legislation, in particular, calculation of customs duties relating to the import of food products to Ukraine; other issues on doing business activities in Ukraine, etc.

Lawyers are professionals. A special thanks to the Director, Tatyana Sotnyk!
