The roots of Penev LLP stretch back to the early 1990s. Founded in the capital, Sofia, by Mr. Sergey Penev, the Firm was previously known as Penev & Partners and prior to that, as Seplex Law Offices. The Firm has steadily grown to become one of a truly small group of Bulgarian law firms with a credible integrated network across Bulgaria and beyond and international support based in London.
