The services of the law firm included, inter alia, mediation with the owner of the domain name, preparation of and legal support during the signing of an agreement on the domain name re-delegation and transfer of exclusive property rights to a trademark, which became the basis for the initial registration of a second-level domain in the.UA public domain, as well as preparation of the package of documents required to introduce the relevant amendments in the State Register of Certificates of Ukraine of Marks for Goods and Services.
The site was created with the support of the British Embassy in Ukraine. The future operation and staffing of the portal will be ensured by the Ukrainian Institute, a specialist state institution established to form a positive image of Ukraine by means of cultural diplomacy.
The project was handled by Dmytro Nikulesko, attorney, and Olena Sereda, lawyer.
