They struggle with the alphabet, the language, let alone the laws and local traditions. Mrs Doytchinova from Schoenherr herself is not qualified to practice as a Bulgarian lawyer and I understand it is not easy to qualify in Bulgaria, but how does this make her more competent in Bulgaria than other Bulgarian qualified lawyers? It would be good to hear the point of view of people who are qualified in Bulgaria rather than see the whole issue through the economics of the problem. Reply Link Peter Hoffmann 24 February 2011 at 17:26 Arthur, all international firms operating in Bulgaria engage fully qualified local lawyers who speak Bulgarian and are trained in Bulgarian law – we have no difficulty with the language, the laws or anything else, other than the problem that standards in the judiciary and levels of corruption and instransparency at many levels of government are wanting and make it more difficult to do business in Bulgaria – not impossible, but more difficult. It’s a serious probelm for our clients, and therefore for us as legal advisors. Reply Link Anonymous 4 August 2012 at 22:37 Alexandra Doytchinova (cited in article) is qualified in Bulgaria.
