Djingov Gouginski Kyutchukov & Velichkov has successfully represented the Bulgarian Employers Association for Innovative Technologies before the country's Supreme Administrative Court in a dispute for its recognition as a nationally representative employers’ organization against the Bulgarian government.
According to DGKV, it all started with a Decision of the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Bulgaria refusing to recognize BRAIT's status. Then the Sofia City Administrative Court, "as a court of first instance, handed down a decision by virtue of which BRAIT’s [challenge] was upheld in its entirety. The competent court repealed the Decision of the Council of Ministers and ordered a new Decision to be issued by the Council of Ministers in accordance with the grounds of the court's decision."
The decision of the Sofia City Administrative Court was then appealed by the Council of Ministers and the Minister of Labour and Social Policy, the firm reported. "The Supreme Administrative Court rendered a decision which rejected the cassation appeals and entirely confirmed the decision of the Sofia City Administrative Court."
DGKV’s team was led by Partner Anton Krustev and included Associates Dimitar Tabakov, Neli Urumova, and Krasimir Avramov.
