In particular, ETERNA LAW was named a leading law firm in the following categories: “Commercial Law”, “M&A”, “Agricultural Sector” and “International Arbitration”. The ETERNA LAW team was also separately recognised in the specialisation of International Arbitration – Eugene Blinov (TOP-3) and Commercial Law – Oleh Malskyy (TOP-7).

Commenting on the results of the rating, Andrey Astapov, Managing Partner, said:

“ETERNA LAW’s rating has increased by 3 positions in comparison with last year’s research. It testifies to the high quality of services provided by the qualified and integrated team and the trust of clients in our company. During the full-scale invasion, the rating is rather the result of the resilience of the team. So I would like to thank everyone in ETERNA LAW for our collective work! There are undoubtedly new achievements to come.

Today, everyone’s main goal is Ukraine’s victory in this war against the aggressor, and ETERNA LAW’s main goal is to save the team and be on the point break. From the start of full-scale aggression, we look to the future with confidence and develop new practices. We have learned to work in the new conditions. We are also expanding and recruiting new specialists. The young people who have joined us today have impressed us with their desire to learn, to participate in the development of the company and to gain practical knowledge.

As for the market in general, the companies in the TOP-10 were in more or less the same position. These are the companies that have a diversified portfolio of clients, both in terms of practices and origin (domestic and foreign clients). It’s definitely clear that the stage of survival and adaptation is over. But it would be short-sighted to stop at the stabilisation stage, we need to adapt to the reality we face and, most importantly, we need to retain our team and key expertise.”

“Legal Practice” has been conducting the “Top 50 Leading Law Firms in Ukraine” research since 1997. Its main feature is a comprehensive analysis of the legal services market participants according to quantitative and qualitative criteria: number of lawyers, profitability, complexity of agreements and lawsuits, and financial efficiency.
