Djingov, Gouginski, Kyutchukov & Velichkov /DGKV/ is one of the largest, oldest and most prominent business law firms in Bulgaria, which has gained international recognition as providing first-class legal services. 

The law firm was founded in 1994 and maintains offices in Sofia and Berlin. For two decades now we have played a leading role in providing legal advice to the Bulgarian Government as well as all types of domestic and foreign corporate clients, investors, and financial institutions on privatization issues and on all business related matters in Bulgaria,  including corporate, mergers and acquisitions, privatisation, banking and finance, competition, energy and utilities, telecommunications, real estate and construction, environment, taxation, litigation, employment and intellectual property. At present, a vast majority of DGKV’s clientele consists of international corporations, which have been serviced on occasion of investment projects in Bulgaria and/or the continued running of their Bulgarian business operations.

DGKV has implemented quite a few pioneer projects such as the first concession and the first bank merger in Bulgaria. The firm’s major asset is its unique combination of (i) profound Bulgarian professional knowledge and experience; (ii) experience and understanding of international business transactions; (iii) ability to bridge the international and Bulgarian legal and business concepts in the best interest of the client and the transaction; (iv) ability to provide its services as part of a complex transaction team and in the format customary for international transactions; and (v) ability to handle large scale transactions requiring simultaneous multidisciplinary approach. Our ever growing client portfolio of major multinational corporations (mainly USA and West European ones) is a fair attestation to the high quality of legal work that we provide. As an integral part of the firm’s commitment to fully satisfy our clients’ needs, DGKV maintains excellent working relationships with all of the leading international law firms based in Europe and North America. The firm also works closely on joint projects with most of the major international financial, accounting and investment firms. We have been attracting and retaining new talents and currently DGKV maintains a representative office in Berlin, Germany, and employs 47 fully qualified lawyers and patent specialists, including 15 partners with extensive expertise. We provide legal advice and services in Bulgarian, English, French, German and Russian. Many of our lawyers have participated in foreign academic programs and have interned at international law firms. Their continuous concentrated joint effort throughout the years has always kept us at the top of the legal market in Bulgaria.
