The managing partner Ms. Petya Murgova is also one of the founding members and Chairperson of the Balkan Association for Dispute resolution – an NGO uniting legal experts from nine countries: Bulgaria, Macedonia, Turkey, Romania, Greece, Serbia, Croatia, Montenegro and Kosovo.

The fundamental objective of the Association is the establishment of mediation as ? preferred out-of-court method for internal and cross-border dispute resolution. The mission of the Association, uniting lawyer-mediators from all over the Balkan Peninsula, is to develop and establish mediation as an out-of-court procedure for dispute resolution in each State represented in BADR. Another primary goal of BADR’s members is to contribute to the improvement of the national legislation of member states and adoption of mediation as an absolute prerequisite to court procedures.

The Association also has an educational purpose: to organize national and international seminars, trainings, mediation competitions and round tables. BADR will establish and maintain contacts and work in close cooperation with Bulgarian and international organizations as well as individuals who share the same values.

The philosophy of BADR is to aid and assist disputing parties to change their way of perceiving a conflict; to cooperate with them in order to achieve an amicable solution, avoiding court proceedings and thus the intervention of a third party.
