The united team of Benchers and Equity defended Odesa mayor

BENCHERS and EQUITY lawyers managed to get High Anti-Corruption Court's refusal to detain the Odesa mayor Hennadii Trukhanov.

The client and other suspects are groundlessly accused of illegally transferring municipal land plots for construction, legalization of illegally obtained income, and causing multimillion-dollar losses to the territorial community.

The lawyers managed to prove the groundlessness of the client’s detention requirement and reduce the bail amount from UAH 120 million to about UAH 30 million.

The defense team included Oleksandr Mykytenko, a partner of BENCHERS, and Oleksandr Lysak, a partner of EQUITY.
