The British Embassy in Sofia has just released its list of Bulgarian lawyers (research on the list began in late spring 2013). The list does not represent an endorsement by the UK government of specific lawyers, however inclusion in it now follows a rigorous process of selection and analysis.
New Balkans Law Office ("NBLO") is proud to be included no less than 6 times and is indeed the firm that is most often mentioned. We are ranked in 3 out of 4 areas on the list (in Property, Company Law and Criminal Law).
The list is most likely to be of use to British, Irish and other English-speaking foreign individuals conducting SME business in Bulgaria or who need legal assistance to organise their affairs including property and conveyancing, issues surrounding rental and management of property, inheritance and wills, personal tax, family law issues (including children, marriage, naming and termination of marriage) and various other issues.
New Balkans Law Office is proud to have served a very large number of UK individuals over the years as well as many from other English-speaking countries, and remains committed to providing services to clients who have roots or connections in the two jurisdictions. Uniquely, we serve our UK and Bulgarian clients out of offices in both Bulgaria (Sofia and Rousse) and the UK (London) and provide high-quality Western-style advice at affordable costs.
Acting for The Walt Disney Company in a dispute
TWDC is a global media player whose TV channels are distributed, inter alia, to Bulgarian viewers. NBLO assisted TWDC’s London office and TWDC’s English counsel in a dispute with a Bulgarian media sales agent which had withheld substantial sales revenue from our client in breach of contract. The dispute was governed by English law but involved substantial Bulgarian law issues relating to insolvency, civil procedure (including in particular enforcement, interim relief, issues of corporate capacity and private international law.
