15 years ago Boyanov & Co. initiated and became a founding member of The South East Europe Legal Group (SEE Legal), a unique organisation of the leading national law firms across 12 countries in South-East Europe, aiming to provide a one-stop-shop for the best legal advice in the region.

We have contributed to a wide variety of legislative initiatives (including by lobbying and providing statements and opinions on amendments of the Bulgarian Constitution and more than 25 legal acts). Lawyers of the firm work as scholars in leading universities, and contribute regularly to Bulgarian and international publications in all areas of local, European and international law.

An illustration of these efforts is the Balkan Legal Forum initiated by the firm in 2000 and supported by the International Bar Association, which, with its nine successful editions, became ”the most important legal event in the region”.
