The law firm reaffirms its excellent reputation and DGKV has been ranked as Silver Band Intellectual Property law firm for a consecutive year. Two individuals are top ranked in the same publication - Ms Kalina Tchakarova, head of the IP practice, and Ms Dessislava Iordanova - Senior Associates in Djingov, Gouginski, Kyutchukov and Velichkov. 

The source says that the full-service business law firm Djingov Gouginski Kyutchukov & Velichkov has been a staple on the Bulgarian market for almost three decades.

Blockbuster brands on its roster include Deutsche Telekom, Amazon and Netflix.

Head of DGKV’s Intellectual Property practice “Kalina Tchakarova delivers flawless counsel based on more than 25 years of experience. For Netflix, she provided a comprehensive analysis of the Bulgarian implementation of the Collective Rights Management (CRM) Directive and advised on the enforcement of direct licences granted by music rights holders.”
