The global slowdown of 2007-9 has changed the dynamic of the Bulgarian financial market. Clients' need for confidence in receiving the best possible advice and for confidence that they are mitigating as many risks as possible has, if anything, increased. The conclusion of debt transactions demands a sophisticated and broad mix of financial and legal capabilities now more than ever.
Our approach to transactions is analytical and rigorous. This allows us to assist clients with innovative solutions and we aim to be at the forefront of all types of finance law work, while remaining highly pragmatic.
To date, we have advised on a large number of transactions with both creditor and debtor clients. We understand how products in the capital structure operate. We also appreciate the different approaches and requirements of lenders, borrowers and investors in the currently unbalanced credit market.
We have assisted our clients in executing secured transactions involving all forms of security, including:
Our lawyers advise banks and other lenders, borrowers, funds and investors in large scale real estate transactions. The team advises our clients on a wide range of property investment and development financings implemented, where relevant, through structured deals of some complexity.
Thus, we have a strong experience and good understanding of all aspects of real estate finance on the Bulgarian market.
Our firm advises stakeholders on the legal aspects of projects and project financings across industries. We provide comprehensive advice on joint ventures and project structures, conduct legal due diligence assignments, assess risk allocation and review the financing arrangements and the relevant security packages.
Through our strong M&A and Insolvency and Reorganization teams, we have good experience in advising corporate debtors in relation to debt restructurings, re-financings and recapitalizations, debt buy-backs, and other forms of restructuring.
Logica plc, now part of CGI, a consultancy & outsourcing business
NBLO has provided broad support to Logica’s CEE regional head office, including on the validity of certain commercial agreements and proposed agreements and on effecting various company secretarial actions. Our commercial work for this client is representative of our time-sensitive non-contentious practice. The firm’s emphasis on an integrated cross-jurisdictional approach and dual-qualified staff have also proven valuable in dealing with the need for valid certification by senior UK-based directors and the resignation of other UK-based individual directors who were no longer available and/or willing to execute documentation.
