Asters has been shortlisted for The Lawyer European Awards 2019 in the category "Law firm of the year: Russia, Ukraine & the CIS". This prestigious international award was established by The Lawyer, an industry leader amongst legal news sources, to recognize law firms that are professionally marking their places in the European legal market.

The judges have handpicked the firms which have showcased the best legal work in the region over the past 12 months. Firms nominated for the awards are selected based on such criteria as ability to win new clients, engage in innovative transactions or cases, and talent to develop other strategic achievements. A panel of judges includes managing partners at private practice firms and in-house counsels at multinational companies, such as Coca Cola, Facebook, Santander, Dreyfus, and others.

"We take this nomination as a high honor and recognition of Asters diversity and quality," – comments Armen Khachaturyan, Asters' Senior Partner. "At the same time recognitions always oblige to keep standards high and progress. This is what we intend further doing for our clients."

The Lawyer European Awards 2019 winners will be announced at the awards ceremony to be held on 19 March 2019 at The Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
