Asters is now located on the 14th floor of the newly built 18-storey Leonardo Business Centre (Second Phase), where the Asters legal team occupies about 2,700 square meters of Class-A office space. The spacious office is designed according to the principle of energy conservation and efficient allocation of space. There are offices with maximum access to the sunlight, 5 comfortable conference rooms, a welcoming lobby, fully functioning kitchens, closets and separate copy-centres – all this complete with new furniture and modern office equipment decorated in keeping with the corporate style and colour scheme of Asters. Proof positive of the fact that the building is located in the historic and cultural centre of the capital is spectacular view from the office which inspires new achievements.
"The move to the new office was the logical result of the firm’s internal growth, whereby our staff has increased 20% compared to last year", said Oleksiy Didkovskiy, Managing Partner of Asters. "This long awaited and pleasant event was the continuation of the restructuring and rebranding, which our team has already gone through, and this marks the beginning of yet another important page in the corporate history of the firm".
70 lawyers and approximately 50 support staff now work at Asters. The space and comfort of the work stations of the new office space constitute a solid foundation for the firm's further development and provide the incentive for the realising its business aspirations.
Tetyana Benko, Chief Operating Officer of Asters remarked, "The trim and the cabinetry of our new office – from the individual attorney offices to the conference rooms and library – gives you a dynamic and mobile feeling. There are no dark colours or bulky furniture – as opposed to classical style, the new designer concept calls for a lot of light, glass, and green composition. We are convinced that the office's modern, and at the same time, cosy atmosphere allows our employees to work at a higher level of comfort and efficiency, and it also impresses our clients and numerous business partners."
