Founded in 1981 and first published in 1983, Best Lawyers is the oldest lawyer-rating publication in the U.S., and the gold standard for accuracy and integrity. Published for more than a quarter of a century, Best Lawyers in America® has been regarded as “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice,” according to The American Lawyer. Since 2009, it has been rating Ukrainian lawyers as well. The inclusion in this publication represents a unique and substantial achievement in 10 practice areas, which seven of Vasil Kisil & Partners legal practitioners obtained for the second time in a row. In 2010 Best Lawyers® recommends Vasil Kisil (Corporate, Investment, Litigation), Oleg Makarov (Arbitration and Mediation, Investment, Litigation, Real Estate, Tax), Oleg Alyoshin (Arbitration and Mediation, Construction, Litigation, Real Estate), Vadym Belyanevych (Arbitration and Mediation, Litigation), Denis Lysenko (Antitrust, Corporate, Investment, Mergers and Acquisitions), Tatyana Slipachuk (Arbitration and Mediation), Natalia Dotsenko-Belous (Real Estate).
