Asters defended interests of PrivatBank, Ukraine's largest bank in terms of assets, in a court of appeal in a dispute related to the ownership right over the client's head office building located in Dnipro (Ukraine).
In November 2020, the Commercial Court of Dnipropetrovsk region upheld the claim of the company connected with the bank's former owners and top management. The court annulled the ownership rights of PrivatBank to the office building, acquired 3 months prior to nationalization as a result of foreclosure on a mortgage to repay a loan owed to a person connected to the bank's former owners.
On 25 April, 2022, the Central Commercial Court of Appeal overturned the decision of the court of the first instance, dismissed the plaintiff's claims, thus confirming the ownership right over the building worth UAH 152 mln to be legal.
