New Balkans Law Office organised an event on the consequences of Brexit

 

Following the Brexit vote of June 23, those of you whose businesses and personal affairs connect them to the UK would have posed questions on the practical and legal implications.

New Balkans Law Office would like to invite you to a seminar entitled ‘Consequences of Brexit: the Bulgarian Perspective’, to take place as follows:

Tuesday July 5, 2016
9.00-10.30 am

The venue for this event is as follows:

Radisson Blu Hotel Sofia
4, Narodno Sabranie Square, Sofia, 1000
Parliament Room

As a law firm with offices in Sofia and London and with lawyers qualified in both jurisdictions, we are uniquely positioned to comment on the issues that arise.

On the day, Kamen Shoylev (Partner) and Irina Stoyanova (Associate and Director, Sofia Office) will present on the following topics:

• Is Brexit inevitable and what might it look like
• Implications for trade
• Implications for corporate structures involving the UK
• Implications for employment and immigration (both into the remainder of the EU and into the UK)
• Dispute resolution implications – contracts involving English law as governing and other disputes involving the UK
• Planning personal affairs

Attendance is free of charge.

Recent work:

An ~€1M claim on behalf of real estate consultants

NBLO’s dispute resolution lawyers represented UK-based real estate consultants who had structured a € 40-million-worth commercial property project on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast.  In breach of an applicable contractual obligation, the consultants had not been paid the agreed success fees for their services. The then director of the defaulting party had been tragically shot dead in the meantime.

Following a hotly contested first instance, with below-the-belt attempts by the other side (the least untypical perhaps being the claim that the contract had been a forgery and a trial-within-a-trial on the issue), our team succeeded in obtaining a judgment at first instance.  The parties were then able to achieve a significant settlement.

The key skills we were able to bring to bear in providing a solution included searching for solutions across the problem domain; appropriately involving representatives of Bulgaria’s EU partner member-states to buttress judicial independence; and resourcefully dealing with heterodox approaches by our judicial opponents.
