Within Corporate and M&A
Since its inception in 2004, Gugushev & Partners has made great strides in the market and is viewed as a ‘credible alternative’ to some of the major traditional firms. As befits a full-service firm, it is able to provide the cradle-to-grave service including any litigious elements that may arise. The firm is also the beneficiary of its membership of the Lexwork International network and regularly receives referral work as a result. Clients appreciate the team’s ability to provide ‘extensive analysis of the issues and come up with a workable solution’. The ‘brilliant’ Stefan Gugushev is a ‘deal closer’, and senior associate Elena Nenova is ‘very precise, well prepared and always finds the right solution’.
Within Privatisation, PPP and foreign investment
Although privatisation work has largely dried up in the country, Gugushev & Partners has an excellent pedigree and has handled some of the most significant matters in the past three years (including the privatisation of Bulgartabac Holding, Plovdiv City Transport and the Bulgarian Telecommunication Company). Stefan Gugushev is recommended.
Within Projects, energy and natural resources
The ‘extremely customer-focused’ Gugushev & Partners’ ‘strong’ energy team has rapidly gained an excellent reputation in the market and continues to represent a significant share of developer clients. A ‘leader in the market for renewables work’, the team was recently involved in the exploitation and development of two domestic wind parks with a value of ?100m. The ‘very impressive’ Stefan Gugushev ‘always knows the trends in the market’, while associate Kostadinka Deleva is also recommended.
Within Real estate and construction
‘Professional and very precise’, Gugushev & Partners provides a ‘sophisticated and technically strong’ service to clients engaged in a broad spectrum of real estate and construction activity from the acquisition of property to the rental and sale of the property. The team has also continued to handle an increased volume of litigation. The ‘detail-orientated’ Petko Angelov and senior associate Elena Nenova, who displays the ‘utmost professionalism’, are pivotal members of the practice.
