Overview

An M&A team with deep Bulgarian & regional expertise

Our Corporate/M&A team in Bulgaria advises on over 30 equity & commercial transactions each year for international investors (VC, PE and industry) and local entrepreneurs and founders of some of the most exciting technology and other companies in Bulgaria and CEE. With Bulgarian and international lawyers 'on-the-ground' in Sofia, we particularly enjoy advising owners, founders and leading local companies on international expansion and transactions, no matter how complex, helping those companies access new capital and expand into new markets. Our transactions include initial growth capital rounds, series venture capital rounds of several tens or hundreds of million EUR, to strategic M&A in banking, telecoms or energy exceeding EUR 1 billion. In each case we enjoy working for our clients and enjoy working on what are often transformational deals, pushing legal precedents and analyses, often on multi-jurisdictional matters.
