Partners Stephan Kyutchukov and Zdravka Ugrinova have assumed joint management responsibilities as the Co-Managing Partners of Djingov, Gouginski, Kyutchukov & Velichkov.

Kyutchukov and Ugrinova have taken up leadership following the recent passing of former Managing Partner Assen Djingov.

According to DGKV, “Assen Djingov was one of the four founding partners of Djingov, Gouginski, Kyutchukov and Velichkov. Starting at the firm’s inception, for years he headed its M&A, General Corporate, and Banking & Finance practice groups. In his remarkable career, he advised clients, such as the EBRD, IFC, Entergy, AES, the Bulgarian American Enterprise Fund, CARESBAC, Nitro Nobel A.B., Conoco, OMV, Expandia Finance, and Hilton International. With the firm maturing and growing as a partnership, Assen stepped up as its first managing partner in the early 2000s. He laid the foundations of the firm’s management structure and steadily navigated the ship until his premature demise in May 2023.”

“Assen played a key role in founding DGKV and navigating our law firm to its top position in the Bulgarian legal market over the past 30 years,” commented Kyutchukov. “The cause and mission of DGKV were shaped by his leadership, dedication, and unwavering commitment to providing high-quality client service and building a strong team of talented lawyers. His legacy will always be cherished.”

“During this challenging time we are committed to maintaining continuity and ensuring a smooth and seamless transition in the firm's management, for the benefit of our clients and team,” added Ugrinova. “We remain focused on maintaining the highest standards of legal services, integrity, and professionalism. We sincerely appreciate our clients’ continued trust and partnership.”
