During the 2000-2008 real estate investment boom in Bulgaria, our senior team accumulated solid experience by providing legal advice to many foreign and local investors in the financing and acquisition of real estate and the subsequent development of facilities of different purpose and scale. Our lawyers have the experience and the legal expertise to advise clients on all legal aspects related to real estate transactions and real estate project development and construction.
However, in the last few years, the local real estate industry has been faced with significant challenges. Though investors are interested in real estate’s potential, they are increasingly selective about the opportunities they support. The current climate offers certain buying opportunity for those looking for bargains from distressed sellers keen to exit, but the general hindrance for all is the funding gap. This has imposed a number of restructuring operations for real estate holders and developers in Bulgaria, as well as difficult negotiations for refinancing. What is certain is that the changes in this sector require new approaches and innovation.
We can use our long time experience to guide you through the real estate turbulences and help you in all legal issues of investor’s interest, including:
Balkanstroy: entry to the UK market
We represented Balkanstroy in the UK, creating a local trading subsidiary involved in the marketing and sales of real estate held by Balkanstroy and companies in its group, and in ensuring its compliance with UK employment, tax, landlord and tenant and regulatory issues. We also defended the subsidiary in the matter of a trade mark breach suit threat brought by a UK TM holder represented by a well-reputed UK law firm.
