Your Trusted Lawyer in Bulgaria

Your Lawyer in Bulgaria: Communication, Competence and Cost

Bulgaria offers attractive business, investment and property opportunities, and many foreign citizens take advantage of them. In order for such ventures to be successful and grow sustainably, it is recommended and even required to consult trusted legal experts. 

The Bulgarian legal system is much different than the one of the United States or the United Kingdom for example. Therefore, having a local specialist assist you is crucial if you are a foreigner and may save you a lot of time and money. 

Yet what is the best way to choose a loyal and reliable legal partner? What exactly are the responsibilities of a lawyer in Bulgaria? How can you communicate with your legal representative and how much do legal services cost?

Choosing a good lawyer in Bulgaria is an important decision that requires careful consideration. Here are some steps that can help you pick a competent and trustworthy lawyer.

  • Find an expert
    First and foremost, look for a lawyer who specializes in the area of law that you need assistance with. Different lawyers may have different areas of expertise, so it is important to find someone who has experience and a good reputation in the specific legal matter you are dealing with.
  • Check the lawyer's credentials
    Make sure that the lawyer has a license to practice law in Bulgaria and is in good standing with the Bulgarian Bar Association. This information should be available on the lawyer's website.
  • Read reviews and ask for referrals
    Look for reviews from previous clients and check international legal rankings to get an idea of the lawyer's reputation and track record. You can also ask friends, family members, or other professionals for recommendations.
  • Schedule a consultation
    Many lawyers offer a free initial consultation to discuss your legal issue and determine if they are a good fit for your needs. Take advantage of this opportunity to ask questions and get a sense of the lawyer's communication style and approach to your case.
  • Consider the lawyer's fees
    While cost should not be the only factor in your decision, you should find out how much you will be charged for the lawyer's services and whether their fees are reasonable and transparent.
