Former Dimitrov, Tchompalov & Todorova partner Katya Todorova has joined CMS Sofia as Head of Capital Markets.
According to CMS, DTT is "a law firm specialized in advising companies, financial institutions, and other clients on sophisticated financial and investment transactions and regulatory matters." From that firm's inception in 2001, CMS reports, "Katya Todorova was an essential part of most of the landmark capital market deals in Bulgaria, such as the squeeze-out and delisting of the Bulgarian Telecommunications Company, convertible bonds issued by Central Cooperative Bank, and [a] rights issue and capital increase by Bravo Property Fund REIT. According to the firm, "she is also highly recommended for her banking and finance, corporate and M&A work, including advising the finance parties to the energy projects Maritza East 1 and Maritza East 3."
"This is a dream move coming true for us," exclaimed CMS Sofia Managing Partner Kostadin Sirleshtov. "We have worked alongside with Katya Todorova since the start of CMS Sofia some 15 years ago and it feelс natural to make the next step. As a market leading law firm, CMS Sofia would like to dominate in each legal field and we are happy to add yet another pearl to our ranks. CMS Sofia won the CEE Legal Matters’ Deal of the Year Award in 2017, 2018, and 2019 and we are now adding the market leading Capital Markets expert to our team. Welcome, Katya!’
"CMS Sofia is a home to so many of my closest friends and colleagues that it feels like a natural move for me," commented Todorova, who joins CMS as a Senior Associate.
