Ronald Fletcher Baker is pleased to welcome a native Russian/Ukrainian-speaking UK qualified lawyer, Oksana Howard, to head the firm’s Russia, Ukraine & CIS Desk.

Oksana has built up a large and impressive client base consisting of major corporate household names, such as Bentley Motors, Toyota and a major CIS oil and gas company; she has also had significant experience and direct exposure to working with CIS clients and markets generally. This experience has equipped her with an insider’s knowledge and understanding of these clients and markets as well as their business mentality and culture, which has helped her tremendously in her career as a lawyer specialising predominantly in acting for Russian, Ukrainian and CIS clients on a broad range of matters.

Prior to joining Ronald Fletcher Baker Oksana worked at the international City law firm Wragge Lawrence Graham. Her corporate and commercial experience includes negotiating general M&A transactions (including with Russian and CIS counterparties), shareholders’ agreements, as well as drafting and reviewing bilingual contractual documentation in relation to Russian and Ukrainian clients. Oksana also has experience of advising high net worth individuals on family governance planning in relation to their shareholdings in various businesses.

In addition to her corporate/commercial experience, Oksana has also worked on a number of high profile international corporate disputes involving major Eastern European clients, which have included the biggest energy company in Ukraine, the Ukrainian Ministry, a Russian footballer, as well as a number of high net worth individuals.

Oksana is also a member of the Ukrainian-British City Club, British-Russian Law Association and British-Kazakh Law Association.
