NBLO's Managing Partner, Kamen Shoylev, is taking part in the International Bar Association Annual Conference.
The conference is being held from 19 to 24 October in Tokyo. It gets over 5,000 lawyers from a wide range of jurisdictions together and hosts several hundred sessions on a wide range of topics of professional interest to lawyers and to their clients.
This is an opportunity for New Balkans Law Office to acquire and maintain up-to-date best-practice know-how, and to develop and maintain links with lawyers in a large number of jurisdictions which brings a significant benefit to its clients.
As Bulgaria's go-to firm for cross-border businesses, NBLO strives to maintain such international exposure continuously.
Acting as a Bulgarian law expert in the context of a FIDIC Dispute Adjudication Board
NBLO acted as Bulgarian law experts to a Dispute Adjudication Board constituted under the terms of a FIDIC modelled construction works agreement between the Bulgarian government and a continental Europe-based general contractor. Advised in detail and in successive iterations in relation to the Bulgarian law questions raised by the DAB at the summary of issues stage as well as at the reply and comments stages. Of particular importance to the DAB was the ability of NBLO lawyers to advise on the distinctions between Bulgarian law principles and proximate English and Swiss law concepts in the law of contract as well as to advise on the direct effect and direct applicability of certain European Commission legislation as a matter of Bulgarian law.
