AstapovLawyers International Law Group, one of the TOP-4 Ukrainian law firms, was founded in 2002 by a team of like-minded lawyers led by Andrey Astapov. The firm's practice was initially centered on legal issues pertaining to international trade of commodities but, as the firm grew, it expanded into international corporate law, mergers and acquisitions, international financial transactions, tax, international arbitration/litigation, mediation, asset management, real estate and construction, foreign investments, antitrust, family, energy and natural resources, maritime and transportation law.
Over the past years, the firm has grown and is now one of the most dynamic and fast-growing full-service law firms on the Ukrainian market. The firm provides top-notch legal expertise to leaders of the business community, both international companies operating in Ukraine, the CIS and Europe, and Ukrainian/Russian businesses.
AstapovLawyers’ Kyiv office is the headquarters of the firm’s practice groups in Ukraine and includes over 75 lawyers based in Kyiv and Odessa. Most of the firm's practitioners have completed post-graduate studies in the US, UK and EU countries. This enables us to combine international experience and knowledge with a complete familiarity with the specifics of the Ukrainian legal environment and its business realities.
