Annual awards for justice “Temida – the price of truth”
04 December 2017
“Penkov, Markov & Partners”, Attorneys-at-law, is proud to announce that our partner att. Milena Gaidarska has won the prestigious prize “Female attorney-at-law of the year” for her overall activity in relation to the implementation of numerous key lawsuits as well as transactions in 2017, thus outperforming the strong competition in this category.
The awards ceremony for the fifth annual prizes for justice “Temida – the price of truth” took place once again at the Marinella Hotel, on 25th November, in the special presence of the Ombudswoman of Bulgaria Maya Manolova, the professors Ognyan Gerdzhikov, Sasho Penov, Vassil Mrachkov, the former chairman of the Sofia Bar Association Petar Kitanov and a number of other proven legal professionals, some of whom came from abroad especially to honour the event.
Being the very first prize-winner in the category “Attorney-at-law of the year” from 2013, att. Vladimir Penkov was invited to award this year’s prize in the same category. The excellent quality of legal services provided by “Penkov, Markov & Partners” has been acknowledged once more following the nomination of another partner from the office in the said category – Nikolay Tsvetanov.
In his greeting words to this year’s winner – att. Lyubomir Vladikin, Vladimir Penkov paid special attention to the fact that there should be no separation of the prize with respect to the gender and that there should be only one award for attorney-at-law of the year. He further pointed out that the event would benefit if it is not influenced by any political aspects which would constitute an element of the awards assessment. In addition, Vladimir Penkov also appealed to the Supreme Bar Council and the Sofia Bar Association in order for those to give their support the forum.
