Kambourov & Partners has successfully represented Sofia Municipality in a copyright dispute.
According to Kambourov & Partners, "the dispute was initiated by Professor Starchev – the sculptor of elements from the '1300 years Bulgaria' monument, which used to be located in front of the National Palace of Culture in the center of Bulgaria’s capital. The Sofia City Court, as the court of the first instance, dismissed all of Professor Starchev's claims and concluded that the actions of Sofia Municipality with regard to the '1300 years Bulgaria' monument have been carried out in line with the legal requirements. The case was also decided in favor of Sofia Municipality by the Appellate Court - Sofia in 2019." According to the firm, "on August 2, 2021, the Supreme Court of Cassation, as the final instance determined, that it does not allow a cassation appeal of the judgment."
Kambourov & Partners’ team was led by Partner Margarita Guigova.
