Redcliffe Partners hires new partner Sergiy Ignatovsky
Redcliffe Partners is pleased to announce a new partner Sergiy Ignatovsky, who joins the firm’s leading litigation and restructuring practices.
Sergiy is one of the top professionals in Ukraine focusing on restructurings, high-profile complex litigation and special situations.
His professional background is diverse. Sergiy has previously worked for many years as a partner in the litigation groups of several leading Ukrainian law firms, as well as general counsel with Metinvest, one of the largest CEE producers of steel and iron ore raw materials.
In 2016, Sergiy was appointed by the creditors’ committee as the general counsel of Mriya Agro Holding. He was responsible for carrying out the complicated, unprecedented and unique restructuring of the group, which included more than 150 companies, following its USD1.3 billion default. As general counsel, Sergiy oversaw the handling of hundreds of court proceedings and dozens of bankruptcies throughout Ukraine, and advised on the subsequent sale of Mriya Agro Holding to a strategic investor.
In 2019-2020, Sergiy was a Deputy Head of the State Property Fund of Ukraine, where he was in charge of corporate governance for state-owned enterprises.
