The firm’s capabilities to support US clients

Hristov & Partners and its lawyers are recognized and ranked in the areas of commercial, corporate and M&A, and EU and competition (antitrust).
We are a panel firm of US-based multinational corporations for corporate and commercial matters in Bulgaria.
In the area of M&A, some of our representative matters include:

  • We have acted for a publicly listed US technology company on the acquisition of a US – Bulgarian storage virtualization company, as a Bulgarian co-counsel to a global law firm. A Top 5 M&A Deal of 2014 in Bulgaria in terms of value.
  • We have advised a US based international renewable energy company (as a sole Bulgarian legal counsel, alongside with the global counsel – an international law firm) on the Bulgarian aspects of its investment in a joint venture operating solar energy projects in six jurisdictions across the globe.
  • We have advised a public US company operating records and information management services centers globally on the Bulgarian aspects of a contemplated acquisition of service centers across Eastern Europe.
  • We have acted for a public US technology company and a global leader in mobile workspaces, providing virtualization, mobility management, networking and cloud services on its acquisition of an innovative storage virtualization software company. We advised on all Bulgarian law aspects of the transaction, including on the aspects relating to the transfer of the underlying intellectual property rights, copyrights and patents under the applicable laws. We have designed, working closely together with our client’s inhouse team of US qualified lawyers, an innovative contractual and deal structure to ensure valid and enforceable transfer of relevant underlying IPRs, patents and copyrights to proprietary software products.

Our mission

With our international experience and mindset, we help our clients reduce their costs and legal risks related to mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, corporate and commercial transactions, competition and antitrust, regulatory compliance, public procurement and international disputes.

International client base

As an element of our strategy to minimize and avoid conflicts of interest, over 90 per cent of our clients are international or multinational companies. We have deliberately decided to act for the foreign investors, either on sell or buy side. In most cases we operate as a referral partner firm alongside a global or an international law firm adhering to those firms’ ethical and work quality and delivery standards.
