According to Arzinger, from 1997 through 2005, Pidhainyi headed the Legal Department of the State Property Fund of Ukraine. In 2005 he left the civil service and became a co-founder and Managing Partner of Agreca. In addition to public sector transactions, Pidhainyi also specializes in government relations.
According to Arzinger, in 1999, Sharapa headed the disputes and claims sector in the Legal Department of the State Property Fund of Ukraine, before co-founding Agreca in 2005. Her specialization is in supporting PPP/concession projects, privatization agreements, and leases.
"Privatization processes in Ukraine have recently intensified, and investments in infrastructure construction and renovation have increased significantly,” comments Arzinger Managing Partner Timur Bondaryev. “Our firm has traditionally had a considerable amount of work in these areas. By welcoming Andrii Pidhainyi and Maryna Sharapa as well as their team in our firm, we bring the best industry expertise in Ukraine in the fields of transport, infrastructure, privatization, and PPP under one roof, thus creating even more opportunities for our clients".
