Overview

Corporate/Commercial is one of our core practices in Bulgaria.  As one of the largest law firms in Bulgaria, we work on transactions with major international firms as either co-counsel or counterparties.  We also work extensively on Macedonian projects and transactions.  

Our Reputation 

Our Corporate/Commercial team is unique in Bulgaria for its specialization and expertise across the regulated sectors, particularly energy and telecommunications.

Our Cases 

We work on a constant basis with many clients to provide on-going strategic and transaction legal assistance. Due to our commercial private equity experience, we are entrusted to lead negotiations for founders and investors, advising on both strategy and approach.  Furthermore, we are actively involved in Bulgaria’s developing start-up and venture capital ecosystem.

Our Role

We are working on some transformational deals, pushing legal precedents and analyses, and actively working for clients across countries on multi-jurisdictional matters. We proactively support our clients through all stages of their transactions to ensure that legal risk is effectively identified and managed, and that transactions successfully put into place the foundation for a target's future growth and development.
