History

The Salkom Law Firm was established in 1990.  According to the law that was effective then, the firm was formed as a small consulting enterprise and joined six practising lawyers. 

The Salkom Law Firm has been developing alongside the market economy in Ukraine.  Being one of the first privately owned law firms, the firm has gone through important stages of development while operating on the emerging market of legal services in the recently created independent state.

The firm had set up its first office in a rented room (Room 606) at the Khreschatyk Hotel located on the central street of Kiev.  By 1992 the firm had already occupied several hotel rooms, and in 1993 it opened its office at the business centre in the Khreschatyk Hotel.  The firm’s personnel grew during the first years of the Firm’s practice, and large domestic and foreign companies joined its client base.    

In 1992 the Scientific and Analytical Centre was formed, and in 1993 the first issue of the Review of Active Laws and Legal Practice of Ukraine, which has been circulated since then, was published.

In 1996 the firm acquired the office in the building located at 12 Khreschatyk Street.  The firm has built an impeccable professional reputation that resulted in the constantly growing client base.  The Firm has always ranked first among the top law firms.  

Since October 2003 the Salkom Law Firm has occupied the two top floors that were added by the firm to the building located in the historic centre of the city of Kiev, between Maydan Nezalezhnosti (Independence Square) and Evropeyskaya Ploshchad (European Square).   The Firm has 30-strong team of carefully selected lawyers lead by 6 partners, and its client base comprises of well-known international corporations, leading national and foreign industrial and commercial companies, banks, government agencies and public organisations. At the same time, the Salkom Law Firm continues to provide legal advice to small and medium sized businesses.  

During more than 20 years of its presence on the market of legal services the Firm has evolved and expanded into a large firm and has undergone various changes, including changes in personnel and partnership, in the size and equipment of the office, but the strategy of dynamism, complex approach to clients’ needs, team work, strict confidentiality, professionalism and top quality of legal services has always been the constant.
