Dentons advises Farmak on acquisitions in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Ukraine

Global law firm Dentons advised Farmak, Ukraine’s leading pharmaceutical company, on a series of strategic acquisitions from a portfolio company of private equity house Novator.  Farmak acquired pharmaceutical marketing companies in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, together with the relevant IP rights and trademarks, and in a separate transaction, a Ukrainian business owning a product portfolio, selected assets, and IP rights and trademarks.
