Nevena Radlova promoted to partner at CMS Bulgaria

May 2022

Nevena Radlova, the Head of Competition and IP at CMS in Bulgaria, has been promoted to partner in the firm’s Commercial/TMIC practice. 

Nevena is a skilled commercial lawyer with more than 17 years’ professional experience, of which she has spent 13 at CMS. Nevena has been the regional coordinator of the Competition practice group at CMS CEE for the last four years. She is a recognised market leader ranked in Chambers & Partners for her competition expertise and in Legal 500 for her commercial, competition and IP work. 

Her current promotion comes only three years after she was promoted to counsel in 2019, as a result of her hard work, excellent leadership skills and the rapid development of CMS Sofia’s Commercial, Competition and IP practices.

Nevena is a graduate of the Law Faculty at Sofia University St. “Kliment Ohridski” and has several additional internationally recognised legal qualifications.

Nevena Radlova comments “I am deeply honoured and very excited to be taking the role of partner from 1 May 2022. I want to thank each of the partners at CMS Sofia and in the CEE TMIC/Commercial practice group, my colleagues in Sofia and in the wider network, our clients, contacts, and friends, each and every one I have had the pleasure of working with and learning from over the years. Looking to the future, I sincerely hope that my promotion will deliver a clear message that CMS aims to help our clients’ businesses in Bulgaria and in the region on a daily basis, with our international platform and know-how, our high directory rankings, deep sector focus and expertise, and above all with our commitment to develop strong relationships and adjust to our clients’ needs in the local context. We are here to help our clients with their daily legal needs, in the same way that we are here to advise on their top priority projects, M&A transactions, financing and complex disputes.” 

Kostadin Sirleshtov, CMS Sofia Managing Partner, CMNO, comments “CMS Sofia is delighted to officially welcome its seventh partner, and we are particularly happy to have Nevena promoted, as she has been a de-facto partner for quite a few years now. Our Commercial, Competition and IP practice is moving from strength to strength and through her excellent work, devoted team and expanding client base, Nevena is best placed to continue this positive trend. I would like to congratulate our newest partner on her promotion and to wish her many happy years as a valuable member of the CMS partnership!”
