B.C. Toms & Co is a multinational law firm of Ukrainian and Western lawyers specializing in Ukrainian law. It was the first Western law firm to open a Kiev office, having focused its practice on Ukraine at its independence in 1991. The firm has handled many of Ukraine’s largest oil and gas and other energy projects. We also handled the legal work for the first, and many subsequent, IPOs to raise funding for Ukrainian projects. Based on our over 28 years of experience in Ukraine, we can provide practical commercial advice on how to establish and develop a business in Ukraine. Based on the firm’s practical experience, it has written numerous articles on Ukrainian law, including the legal section of the book Doing Business in Ukraine. The principal practice areas of B. C.

In addition, the firm has a successful litigation and arbitration practice, having been involved in many of Ukraine’s most important cases, including before the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague. The firm also regularly advises on Ukrainian tax law, including from a multinational tax planning perspective. B. C.
