The firm: CasePro was founded in 2011 by four partners as a boutique corporate law firm specialising in commercial law and financial transactions. Since then, the firm has grown significantly in both size and practice areas to become a leading full-service legal provider.

The firm is proud to be comprised of dependable and ethical lawyers who are experts in their fields and CasePro has always focused on its investment in talented professionals. The CasePro team strives to maintain the highest level of know-how and understanding of its clients’ business sectors and distinguishes itself by a balanced assessment of the legal risks and application of the most relevant legal solutions.

During recent years the firm gained considerable experience in a number of debt and equity investment transactions and became a trusted legal partner of venture capital funds and recognisable international companies from the financial and technology sector.

The team is committed to maintaining the highest level of professional expertise by keeping up with the latest business trends. CasePro specialists are often invited by business organisations and education institutions to speak about various legislative challenges faced by the outsourcing sector, as well as start-ups in Bulgaria.

CasePro and its lawyers are members of a number of sectoral and business organisations and networks, among which are the International Bar Association (IBA), the German-Bulgarian Industrial-Commercial Chamber, the Bulgarian Industrial Association and the Bulgarian Association of Asset Management Companies (BAMMC).

Areas of practice: CasePro is an innovative and dynamic full-service law firm. The firm has established its excellent national reputation in areas such as M&A, banking and non-banking financial transactions, real estate and labour law. CasePro is also recognised by companies from the outsourcing, fin-tech and IT industries.

CasePro was selected as a legal partner of choice for some of the biggest venture capital funds operating in Bulgaria and advised more than 40 financing transactions that were successfully closed in the past two years. The firm also consulted during a series of financing rounds organised by the leading European mPOS provider SumUp and its recent merger with one of its biggest competitors.

The firm has extensive experience in M&A transactions and corporate restructuring and has assisted with a number of cross-border mergers and group reorganisations. CasePro’s complex support involved the execution of transfer of assets, including IP rights, as well as adjustment of the corporate structure and constitutional documents of existing holding companies from common law jurisdictions to the requirements of the continental legal system.

During the past year it has played a significant role in several big real estate projects such as the construction of a luxury residential complex in Sofia, the development of an additional maintenance production capacity facility (including new type of aircraft maintenance services) and office spaces for an international client. CasePro’s support also covers all legal aspects of the financing of the projects.

Being the trusted legal partner of numerous companies of more than 500+ personnel, the team specialises in complex labour-related matters, including structuring of collective employment agreements, management/employees option pools and plans.
