In the era of compact discs and local internet networks some 10 years ago, Oleksiy Stolyarenko was one of the originators of Ukrainian copyright and information technology law.
Today Stolyarenko is a senior associate at the Ukrainian branch of international law firm Baker McKenzie, advising the most famous IT brands on how to operate legally on the Ukrainian market.
“It’s a blessing,” Stolyarenko says, describing his job. He says most famous world brands, including top tech companies, partner with Baker McKenzie. “It’s truly a mind-blowing (experience) when companies like these come to you for a piece of advice,” Stolyarenko says.
