Asters has announced the launch of a new French Desk at the firm, which it reports will be "focused on providing comprehensive support for corporate and private French-speaking clients."
The new desk is led by Senior Associate Bohdan Shmorhun, who speaks French. According to Asters, Shmorhun "has an excellent track record with energy and real estate projects, both representing clients and successfully liaising with the state and local authorities."
"As the largest Ukrainian law firm, with a global reach, Asters is able to provide a coordinated and seamless service with cross-border support when our clients require it," commented Asters Senior Partner Armen Khachaturyan. "Asters has been advising companies from francophone countries since mid-90s. The newly established French Desk will serve as a main point of contact for the firm's French-speaking clients providing a convenient and efficient client-oriented interface."
The announcement follows closely upon the news earlier this month that the firm had launched both Nordic and German Desks (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on April 1st and April 13, 2021, respectively).
