NBLO jurisdictions

London connection

NBLO is unique among Bulgarian law firms given our offices in Sofia and London; we routinely serve clients across the two locations. We regard our presence in London as Europe’s (and arguably the world’s) deepest and most sophisticated legal services market as an opportunity to connect, learn and improve.

Dual qualified lawyers

While our firm does not itself advise on English law, one of our Partners is dual-qualified as a barrister in England and Wales where he practises on the direct access basis. Several of our permanent team members and consultants are qualified to practise in England, New York and California respectively. We regularly advise on issues relating to common law systems in Bulgaria and team members are qualified to give expert evidence on this to Bulgarian courts.

International network

Team members regularly attend on clients abroad, e.g. across Europe, in the USA, in Hong Kong, Singapore, Moscow, Dubai and Tel Aviv. We frequently interact with colleagues globally and have a regularly tested network of firms across specialities and jurisdictions. This allows us to refer clients or manage cross-border projects for clients confidently and deliver the best outcomes for all.

We are members or have other relevant affiliations with multiple professional associations and networks of lawyers, including the IBA, IMC, STEP. UKAEL, BEG and others.

We have handled cases entailing cross-border elements and have served clients from over 90 jurisdictions, as well as maintain connections with law firms in over 17 countries around the world.

Our lawyers are proficient at conducting legal correspondence and drafting in English, German, French, Russian and Italian in addition to Bulgarian. We also use Japanese, Mandarin and Spanish.
