Highly receptive and extremely knowledgeable, Alexander follows boldly in the steps of our dispute resolution leaders. Clients say that Alexander is the only lawyer they ever want to work with.

Alexander’s practice is mainly focused on complex arbitration, litigation and insolvency cases. He is also involved in DPC’s banking & finance, energy and transport practices. He joined DPC early in his studies and had become a valued member of the team well before graduating from Sofia University.

One of Alexander’ biggest career successes is working on a complex shareholders dispute where DPC’s team managed to obtain a security order from a court which prohibited the counterparties from exercising their voting rights on the shares. A Bulgarian court had never before granted such an interim measure – prohibition on exercising a voting right on a share.

Alexander was also part of the team representing a group of Bulgarian and foreign electricity operators in challenging an administrative act of the Minister of Energy which imposed a temporary ban on the export of electricity.

Another milestone case he worked on was challenging an administrative act of the Bulgarian Energy and Water Regulatory Commission, which resulted in a reference for a preliminary ruling to the Court of Justice of the European Union.

As a part of our dispute resolution team Alexander has worked on a number of insolvency proceedings and has gained notable experience with regard to medical malpractice. He has contributed to the successful recognition and enforcement of an ICC award in favour of a flag-carrier European airline.
