Former Penkov, Markov & Partners Partner Svetlin Adrianov has joined EY Law as Associate Partner and Law Leader for EY Bulgaria, Albania, and Macedonia, in a move the firm claims "strengthens one of the firm’s core practice areas – corporate and transaction law, and adds further depth to the firm’s offering."
Adrianov has a Master's in Law from the St. Kliment Ohridski University in Sofia. He spent the previous 23 years of his legal career at Penkov, Markov & Partners ⎯ most recently as Partner, Head of Competition & Anti-Trust, and Co-Head of Litigation & Arbitration.
According to an EY press release, at the "Ernst & Young Law Partnership, Svetlin will be focusing on further developing the transaction, corporate and employment law capabilities of the team and on adding additional strength in the fields of competition and anti-trust law, consumer protection and IP."
Adrianov described his reasons for joining EY Law to CEE Legal Matters in an extensive summary: "joining EY Law after spending 23 years with Penkov, Markov & Partners is the beginning of an exciting new journey for me. Bringing my long and diverse experience of providing complex legal services for which I am thankful to PM&P to the truly global legal practice of EY Law encompassing more than 2,000 lawyers spread across more than 80 jurisdictions opens entirely different horizons. I am very happy with the excellent legal team that I am leading now, which is comprised of very competent, knowledgeable, and dedicated professionals possessing just the right mix of legal qualification and specialization to provide the legal support and advice that a modern business needs. What is the most exciting for me, though, is the multidisciplinary approach which is in the DNA of my new home organization, enjoying the synergy potential of great tax, accounting, transaction advisory and people advisory teams working within a system. This gives the unique opportunity to offer not just a complex and comprehensive legal advice but indeed a complex business solution to any problem a modern company may face.”
