DGKV is pleased to share that Mr. Omourtag Petkov, one of the law firm’s key lawyers in the M&A, international contracts, regulatory and restructuring practice groups, has been elected to the Board of Directors of the American Chamber of Commerce in Bulgaria at its General Assembly held on May 18, 2021. The attending members of AmCham have unanimously approved Mr. Omourtag Petkov to replace Mrs. Eliza Grancharova on the Board of Directors following her resignation prior to the General Assembly.
AmCham’s main goal is to promote cooperation between the United States and Bulgaria and, in particular, to strengthen the traditionally good commercial and economic relations between the two countries. An essential part of the mission of AmCham is to improve the business environment, investment climate, and living standards in Bulgaria by advocacy and active engagement with all stakeholders – government, business, NGO-s, and media.
DGKV was one of the founding members of AmCham and has been providing pro bono legal services to the organization since its inception more than 26 years ago. Now, Omourtag – admitted to practice in New York and Bulgaria – will bring to AmCham his experience as lawyer but also his leadership and organizational skills acquired as now former Chairman of the British Bulgarian Business Association.
Please join us in congratulating Omourtag on his election to the Board of Directors of AmCham!
