Antonia MavrovaKinstellar

The ‘proactive and client-focused’ real estate and construction practice at Kinstellar handles large-scale, complex, and cross-border projects for investment firms, property developers, and major clients in the retail and tourism industries. The firm advised the MERIDIAM consortium on its winning bid for the €3.9bn Sofia Airport concession – which included advice on proposed construction processes and the future relationship with current tenants of the five million sq.m. airport site. The team also advises international clients on entering into joint ventures with local businesses for major projects.  Antonia Mavrova, who leads the Sofia practice, has extensive experience in structuring lease agreements and property management contracts, while managing associate Mladen Minev brings his ‘outstanding know-how and eye for detail’ to real estate developments, including zoning and planning compliance, environmental assessment, and sales.
