With 70 offices across 40-plus countries, CMS is a potent presence in Europe, providing joined-up counsel that effortlessly traverses borders. The Bulgarian trademark contingent – much like its counterparts elsewhere – is a persuasive one-stop shop, approaching all instructions from a resolutely commercial angle to help realise clients’ long-term ambitions. Nevena Radlova, a business-savvy lawyer who advises at the intersection of IP and competition law, co-leads the practice. She finely blends deep-subject matter expertise with keen insight into numerous market sectors, delivering global strategies in a timely and cost-effective manner.

An extensive global footprint and technological sophistication give CMS Adonnino Ascoli & Cavasola Scamoni an edge on the local market; while its cohesive internal structure ensures that it can seamlessly handle briefs spanning national and practice area boundaries. In 2019, it bolstered its bench with the arrival of commercially savvy lawyer Besnik Duraj, whose efforts since have earned the firm its first WTR 1000 listing this year. Duraj specialises in complex litigation and works closely with customs officials to protect and enforce the rights of some of the world’s best-known apparel, footwear and jewellery brands.
