Utilities Law

Our experience in the field of public utilities ranges from waste collection and disposal, water supply and sewage services to local, regional and international gas pipeline construction, heat supply, etc. We advised one of the very few M&A transactions in the area of waste collection in Bulgaria. We support our clients in their participation in public procurement and concession competitions in this strictly regulated sector.

By advising on the local requirements and technical regulations we assist our clients by preparing documents, assisting in negotiations and advising on the contract with the competent authorities as well as working on the licensing procedures. We are able to provide such services to our clients thanks to our experience with the regulatory framework from diverse legislative acts, for instance the Energy Act, the Water Act, Concessions Act, etc. The services which our clients with include, but are not limited to:

  • Counseling on corporate, commercial and contract matters
  • Applications for licensing from regulatory and administrative agencies
  • Negotiating business relationships
  • Property matters, easement rights, etc.
  • Protection of intellectual property and data privacy

Our Tax Department provides advice on VAT and corporate tax as well as representation before the National Revenue Agency and the respective courts in litigation cases.
