The firm has advised on most of Bulgaria's landmark transactions. Its client portfolio includes over 3,000 local and international companies, governments, and institutions.
Since its establishment, the firm has always been ranked as a market leader for the excellence of its integrated services, drawing on years of experience in international transactions and structures, on in-depth knowledge of local, European, and international law, and on the brilliance of its professionals.

Our experience in industries as diverse as aviation, banking and insurance, branded goods, food and beverages, manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, retail and wholesale trade and distribution, mining, telecommunications, IT and media, allows us to have an unique insight and a sound knowledge of our clients' businesses, and their respective markets, as well as the ability to transfer successful solutions across borders.

Lawyers of the firm work as researchers in leading universities, and contribute regularly to Bulgarian and international publications in all areas of local, European and international law.
The firm's unwavering support for business has made it a valued member of organizations such as Confederation of Employers and Industrialists in Bulgaria, the American Chamber of Commerce in Bulgaria, the German-Bulgarian Chamber of Commerce, the Bulgarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, International Chamber of Commerce Bulgaria, etc. Its partners are active in the International Bar Association, American Bar Association, INTA, Lord Slynn European Law Foundation and others.
