Asters, the largest Ukrainian law firm, is expanding its international reach by setting up a new representative office in London in March 2019. This launch follows recent additions of Washington DC and Brussels offices and will foster existing ties with London-based clients, as well as develop new contacts and opportunities.
Asters office in the world’s leading financial center will enable lawyers from multiple practices to be closer to decision-making centers of a large number of our clients and serve multinational clients investing in Ukrainian markets. The office will focus on further development of the longstanding relationships with London-based clients and international law firms and will not advise on English law.
"With large number of international organizations operating from or having substantial presence in London, it’s global connectedness and reputation as a business hub, it is a very convenient and attractive location to build business relationships", comments Oleksiy Didkovskiy, firm's Co-Managing Partner. “By having a presence in London, it makes our firm far more accessible for our international clients, and helps Asters to maintain strong relationships with the City based law firms".
London office will be run by Partner Olga Khoroshylova. Olga has extensive banking, finance, and project finance experience including working as a partner in leading Ukrainian law firms for more than 12 years.
