Asters has successfully defended the interests of the Home Box Office company in a dispute before Ukrainian courts regarding the production and distribution of its Chornobyl limited series in the country.

"The plaintiff sought deletion of certain scenes from the Chornobyl series and a prohibition for Home Box Office and other defendants on the matter to distribute the series in Ukraine," Asters informed.

“The court, however, did not find any evidence of a breach of the plaintiff's right by the producers of the series and dismissed the lawsuit,” the firm reported.

HBO is an American media and entertainment company operating as a unit of Warner Bros. Discovery.

The Asters team included Partners Julia Semeniy and Andriy Pozhidayev and Senior Associates Viktor Tarasenkov and Olena Kozhokar.
