Igor Svechkar, Asters' Partner, has been named one of the world's top experts in antitrust law in the latest edition of 40 Under 40 Survey by Global Competition Review (GCR).
"This is a terrific acknowledgement of Igor's achievements. I know he strived to feature in GCR 40 Under 40 and it is just the right timing this year as Igor is turning 40 before the next edition comes out in four years. Inclusion in the survey signifies Igor's highest level of professionalism and his reputation among clients and peers. – Oleksiy Didkovskiy, Asters' Managing Partner, comments. – We are proud to be working side by side with such a prominent lawyer and wish Igor further success in an already distinguished career".
Every four years, Global Competition Review runs its 40 Under 40 Survey, which aims to identify the world’s leading young antitrust professionals. This year’s survey is more diverse than ever, with candidates selected across 19 different countries and 34 different firms. All selected lawyers were recognized for their work on major mergers and significant cartel and abuse of dominance cases.
"It’s the work these lawyers have done in their home jurisdictions that has earned them a place in this year’s 40 under 40. Indeed, all of the nominated lawyers have worked on major mergers, cartel investigations and dominance cases – sometimes helping to usher in their country’s competition law enforcement regime. Igor Svechkar, a partner at Asters in Kiev, practises at the firm where he started his career 16 years ago, and over that time he has seen his business grow alongside Ukrainian competition law", - the editorial team of Global Competition Review emphasizes.
