Asters has been awarded Law Firm of the Year: Ukraine by The Lawyer European Awards for the second consecutive year.
The 2021 ranking highly appreciates the firm's quarantine project that required the review of the firm's strategy combined with the urgent tactics during the challenging times. It also highlights the long-standing commitment of the team mentioning that many of them remain with the firm for over a decade.
Summarizing the firm's achievements, the ranking says "Asters is a trailblazer both in Ukraine and beyond" for its quick and decisive response as well as understanding of how to invest with a long-term prospective.
"When Asters introduced the quarantine project in March 2020, we did not think about recognition. Our main goal was to protect the main asset – our people. Having more than 220 team members aboard, we had to think out of the box in order to create healthy working environment for all of them. We are happy that we succeeded and honoured that such a prestigious ranking highly appreciated our efforts. This trofie goes to each member of Asters team whose daily dedicated work, loyalty and responsibility helped the firm to run smoothly through the unstable times," – comments Asters Senior Partner Armen Khachaturyan.
