In these difficult times, New Balkans Law Office would wish to reassure you that we continue our work with full vigour.

Our team members are working remotely where necessary and our systems are configured to enable us to provide as excellent a support as always.

We will continue to be fully contactable via +359 2 950 6239, +44 20 7183 0262, and by email at sofia@newbalkanslawoffice.com and to the email addresses and phones of your usual contacts at the firm.

Our office is open but face-to-face meetings may not always be possible.

However, all associates and partners have access to video conferencing technology and video conferences can be arranged as needed.

We realise that these are exceedingly testing times and are committed to providing advice and assistance in relation to the impact of the epidemic and the measures for its suppression on employees, employers, businesses and the community generally.

For this purpose, we have set up an area on our website where we will add know-how on the topics of interest.

If you have any questions in relation to Covid-19, related to your own response planning and business continuity arrangements, please get in touch with your usual  NBLO contact or at covid19@newbalkanslawoffice.com

We are constantly monitoring, and will adhere to, the Government advice but are determined that the effect of any disruption on our clients is kept to a minimum.

We hope that all our clients and colleagues remain safe and healthy during this time.

Recent work:

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.
