Wolf Theiss

БЪЛГАРИЯ

Разположена на кръстопът между Европа и Азия, България винаги е била културно отличителна част на света. С прехода си към свободна пазарна икономика, бързия си икономически растеж през последните години, по-силна индустрия и един от най-значимите енергийни сектори в рамките на ЕС, тя се превърна в страна на големи бизнес възможности. Благоприятната данъчна система привлича много чуждестранни инвеститори, особено в секторите на енергетиката, химическата промишленост, строителството и недвижимите имоти.

Офисът ни в София е открит през 2007 г. като естествено продължение на проектите и сделките, предприемани в страната в продължение на много години. Днес екипът на адвокатско дружество "Волф Тайс" в София се състои от професионалисти, с които сме изключително горди. Те са консултирали успешно някои от най-сложните сделки в България и Македония и редовно водят международни проекти по придобивания и транзакции в Централна и Източна Европа.

Фокусът на екипа винаги се основава на предлагането на практически съвети, които са обосновани от търговската действителност. Имаме значителен опит във всички области на корпоративното право, сливания и придобивания, банкиране, дългове и проекти за финансиране и капиталови пазари. Твърдо вярваме, че познаването на закона е само част от нашата роля - ние допринасяме със знания от първоизточника на политическия, културния и търговския климат. Нашите усилия действително са съсредоточени върху успеха на проектите на нашите клиенти.
