NBLO’s Enforcement Client Note considers all aspects of enforcement in Bulgaria. It discusses the scope of enforcement; its execution (commencement, progress and termination) and its limits. The note examines the subject from the viewpoints of both creditor and debtor.
The second part of the note describes the treatment of awards and determinations by other bodies. This includes a discussion of how various regulatory, quasi-judicial and self-regulatory bodies and interact with court judgments, as well as considering how “Brussels regime” judgments are enforced.

A win in an insurance exclusion clause dispute at the Supreme Court
NBLO's dispute resolution team, led by Yordan Neshkov, secured a success against a large Bulgarian insurer in a claim brought on behalf of a UK national, who had lost her property in a fire. The insurer had refused to pay out under the insurance, on the grounds that a widely drawn clause in its general terms allegedly excused it from paying whenever there was a breach of building regulations, even if (as was accepted in this case) this breach was invisible externally, could not be discovered through reasonable investigation and was not caused by the insured. NBLO had good reasons to argue that this position was unsupported in the Bulgarian Insurance Code or civil law generally and persuaded the Supreme Cassation Court to back it. This is covered more fully in an article on our website.
