Innovative, yet always practical

A brief history

DTT, widely known as Dimitrov, Tchompalov and Todorova before, has been established in 2001 by Dimitar Dimitrov, a former vice-chairman of the Bulgarian State Securities Commission (the predecessor of Financial Supervision Commission). In 2003, Iordan Tchompalov, also a former commissioner, and Katya Todorova, an experienced lawyer, joined the firm.

DTT soon became the leading law firm in capital markets area as recognized by Legal500 and Chambers. A huge part of the then new capital markets legislation was drafted by the partners and the firm also succeeded to realize most of the largest projects on the market, many of them for a very first time in Bulgaria.

Very recently, DTT had to temporarily cease its activity since Dimitar Dimitrov was briefly appointed as an advisor to the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Regional Development and Public Works.

The firm is now reorganised to rely also on large number of external lawyers, economists, accountants and appraisals. It gives us a great deal of flexibility and ability to take on variety of complex projects.

Еuropean Legal 500 2015 recommend DTT lawyers as an “excellent team”. As fer former L500 editions DTT is “unique in specialising in Bulgarian securities matters” and “possibly Bulgaria’s leading firm for debt and equity traded on the Bulgarian Stock Exchange”. “DTT offers a ‘high quality and reputable service’ to both issuers and underwriters. With two of the three partners at the firm formerly at the Bulgarian Securities Exchange [regulator], ‘it knows local securities law and the large number of regulation issued by the Financial Supervision Commission’. Despite market conditions, the firm still managed to handle some significant transactions”.

Chambers Еurope 2015 says that DTT “adopts an in-depth focus on complex capital markets mandates, covering equity offerings, convertible debt, takeover bids and the reorganisation of listed companies. Highly knowledgeable of detailed regulatory matters.” In former editions of Chambers Еurope DTT is recommended as “well known for its strength in capital markets, where it managed to retain work despite the economic downturn… and has strong reputation for being very good in the sector, particularly for local companies”.
