Asters has launched a dedicated Nordic Desk, led by Associate Damien Magrou.

According to Asters, the new desk will offer “legal advice in Scandinavian languages, adapted to Nordic business culture, and with an understanding of the Nordic jurisdictions' legal systems.”

Magrou, a native Norwegian, has an LL.M. from the University of Oslo as well as a Master’s degree in law from the University of Bergen. Before joining Asters in September of 2020, he spent two years with Eversheds Sutherland in Saint Petersburg, Russia. According to the firm, he "focuses on cross-border M&A, international contracts, and transactions. He also advises on matters of EU law as applicable in a Ukrainian context, as well as assisting Nordic private individuals with legal matters in Ukraine. He has experience and sector-specific focus within energy, gambling, and IT. “

"Asters has been advising Nordic companies on entering the Ukrainian market since the mid-90s,” commented Asters Senior Partner Armen Khachaturyan. “We are members of the Norwegian Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce and have a well-established network with leading Nordic law firms. We see Nordic businesses having increasing importance in the Ukrainian market. To address this, we have structured a highly motivated team within Asters. The newly established Nordic Desk will serve as a primary point of contact for the firm's Scandinavian clients and will provide a convenient client-specific interface for mutually beneficial cooperation."
