We are tremendously proud to serve as one of the lead sponsors of the London Festival of Bulgarian culture. The festival will be taking place throughout November in locations across London – it is a celebration of the finest music, art, theatre and film Bulgaria has to offer.
One of the qualities we appreciate most about the festival is the impressive range of talent that it attracts each year. From classical music, to jazz, folk music, poetry, dance and beyond, there is representation from nearly every musical and art genre—a true reflection of Bulgaria’s diverse artistic history.
Supporting the arts is very important to us at New Balkans Law Office, and it is wonderful to see Bulgarian culture promoted in London. We look forward to another extraordinary year at the London Festival of Bulgarian culture, and hope you enjoy this memorable experience with your friends and family.

Asset tracing and fraud: Use of evidence from parallel criminal proceedings in a civil trial
Over the last year, we have assisted the victims of a multi-million dollar large-scale international fraud. Certain of the scheme’s operations were embedded in Bulgaria’s thriving business process outsourcing (BPO) ecosystem.
As part of our representation for clients, we have pursued a claim in a regional Bulgarian court (the organisers of the fraudulent scheme having transferred the registration of the relevant entity to a disused building in that location). We were pleased to obtain a very helpful intervention from the court at first instance including an order to append files containing a substantial amount of evidence generated through a criminal investigation into the fraud to the civil case. This provides rich evidential pickings for proceedings which are either already being conducted or are being contemplated in a range of international jurisdictions as well as Bulgaria.
