Asters is awarded 2015 Law Firm of the Year: Ukraine and the CIS by The Lawyer, a leading British weekly magazine covering the legal market. The results of The Lawyer European Awards were announced at the Awards ceremony on 12th March 2015 at the Marriott Grosvenor Square, London. Last year Asters also received the award in this category and Asters' Managing Partner Oleksiy Didkovskiy was shortlisted for the European Managing Partner of the Year.
The Lawyer European Awards is created to recognize law firms that are professionally marking their places in the European legal market. Firms nominated for the awards were very diligently chosen based on such criteria as perfect services to their clients, ability to win new clients, engagement in innovative transactions or cases, and capacity in developing legal strategic achievements. A panel of judges consisted of the best lawyers in Europe practicing at HBO Europe, Unisys, Osborne Clarke, Arnold & Porter, Orwell Group, and others. Commenting on Asters' victory the judging panel pointed out that Asters is "probably the most consistent law firm in Ukraine at the moment" and praised its "solid client base and approach to providing legal advice".
Asters' Managing Partner Oleksiy Didkovskiy recognizes: "We are extremely honored and are earnestly grateful to be receiving such a significant award for the second time in a row. We have faced many challenges, but each has only strengthened the Firm to make us thorough professionals who know exactly what they want; someone who sets their eyes on a goal and does not take them off it unless it is achieved". Armen Khachaturyan, Asters' Senior Partner, adds: "This award could not have been achieved without the inspiration that was received from all the colleagues who are the members of Asters exemplary team and from whom the Firm derives the strength".
