Ukraine's Asters has opened a representative office in London, run by Partner Olga Khoroshylova.
The launch follows the firm's recent opening of offices in Washington D.C. and Brussels and will, Asters reports, "foster existing ties with London-based clients, as well as develop new contacts and opportunities."
According to a press release issued by the firm, "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 [the] further development of longstanding relationships with London-based clients and international law firms and will not advise on English law."
"With a large number of international organizations operating from or having substantial presence in London, its global connectedness and reputation as a business hub, it is a very convenient and attractive location to build business relationships," commented Co-Managing Partner Oleksiy Didkovskiy. “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."
