We pride ourselves on being one of Bulgaria's few international law firms with a strong record of serving the needs of charities, foundations and NGOs, and particularly those with an intermational or cross-border dimension to their work.
We also have a growing experience of working with the related sector of social enterprises where the relevant legal issues are different but the context and client goals often very similar.
In exchange for their charitable objectives, charities receive a preferential treatment as to tax and administrative requirements, but compliance is a highly relevant concern.
Bulgaria has not had a long modern history of charitable giving. Charities and NGOs vary in the degree to which they can depend on the assistance of government officials. We aim to support charities howsoever we can and to introduce best practices.
As part of our commitment to charities, we have supported the London Festival of Bulgarian Culture as a sponsor and provider of legal services since its inception in 2009.
