Corporate and commercial

This is our core practice – we develop it from the establishment of our firm in 1998 and currently provide full range of legal services to business clients – local and foreign legal entities (mainly commercial companies, private or listed), or to private clients in relation to their business activities.  

Starting a business

We advise and help clients to choose from all available forms of doing business in Bulgaria  (different types of commercial companies, branches or representative offices) and  provide all necessary assistance in relation to setting up the chosen form: drafting incorporation or other relevant documents (including joint venture and shareholders’ agreements), assistance atfounding meetings and filings with respective registries.

Further on, we continue to support our clients depending on their needs and requests. Our support may include: drafting of corporate resolutions or internal regulations, organizing and chairing shareholders and boards meetings, advising on and preparing necessary documents in relation to changes in the share capital (including in-kind contributions or debt-equity swaps), and other corporate governance matters; dealing with disputes between shareholders and actions challenging shareholders’ resolutions.
