HRISTOVA & BANKOVA: PROTECTION AND CALM


The law firm helps companies to apply for public funding

 Pavlina Hristova.jpg.jpg

Projects with EU and public funding can be key for a company's development. However, the successful application and realisation of the project, the participation in tender or other activities are impossible without qualified legal help. Since 2013 Hristova & Bankova Law Firm has successfully helped Bulgarian and foreign companies to participate in projects, tenders and public procurement deals on Bulgarian territory.

Why do companies need qualified legal help when applying for projects with EU funding?

Companies should consult with a qualified lawyer as early as when they are deciding whether to apply for a project or participate in a tender. Even at this early stage they can protect their interests, for example, by appealing against the public procurement's documentation, thus obliging the Contracting Authority to set and apply more equal conditions. Foreign companies, for their part, often are not aware of local regulations or are incapable of using the information tools and platforms for application for projects, tenders and public procurement deals. Qualified legal help is also important when creating consortiums for application for projects or public procurement deals, and their execution. Hristova & Bankova Law Firm follows all legal changes and offers expert help at each stage of the realisation of such types of projects, including in the period of ongoing monitoring and evaluation of the achieved sustainability.

What are your key services in this field?

We have a rich procedural experience in court cases for financial corrections that protect beneficiaries against claims for irregularities, conflicts of interest and others. We also successfully defend beneficiaries when they are denied verification of EU funding. The legal help that we can offer includes the whole circle of legal relations – from the moment of the decision to participate in a project, tender, public procurement deal, to the moment of the execution. In the past 4 years we have been procedural representatives in over 200 court cases for EU funded projects.

What are the most important measures and actions that you take when a client of yours appeals against the results of a public procurement deal to the Commission on Protection of Competition or the courts?

Our first task is to familiarise with the facts. Then we build our defence thesis and carefully research the legal practice. By stepping on this and on our experience, we always consider all possible scenarios. Sometimes we advise our clients to not dispute. Appealing against the results of a public procurement deal is not a single act and always should be considered within a broader context. We always seek the best way to protect our client's rights and legal interest, and we work by following the highest standards of professional ethics.

ХРИСТОВА И БАНКОВА: Защита и спокойствие

Адвокатската кантора помага на компаниите да кандидатстват за публично финансиране

Проектите с европейско и обществено финансиране могат да са ключови за развитието на една компания. Но успешното кандидатстване и изпълняване на проекта, участието в търг или друга дейност са невъзможни без квалифицирана правна помощ. От 2013 г. насам Адвокатска кантора "Христова и Банкова" успешно помага на български и чуждестранни компании да участват в проекти, търгове и поръчки, провеждани в България.

Защо компаниите имат нужда от квалифицирана правна помощ, когато кандидатстват по проекти за европейско финансиране?

Компаниите трябва да се консултират с квалифициран юрист още, докато решават дали да кандидатстват по определен проект или поръчка. Още на това първоначално ниво те могат да защитят интересите си, например като обжалват документацията за обществената поръчка и така да се изиска от Възложителя да заложи и приложи по-равноправни условия. От своя страна, чуждестранни компании често не познават местната регулация или не могат да работят с информационните инструменти и платформи за кандидатстване по проекти, търгове и поръчки. Квалифицирана юридическа помощ е важна и при създаването на консорциуми за кандидатстване по проект или поръчка, и тяхното изпълнение. Кантора "Христова и Банкова" следи всички нормативни промени и предлага експертна помощ на всеки етап от реализацията на такъв тип проекти, включително в периода на последващ мониторинг и преценка на постигнатата устойчивост.

Attorney at law Aleksandra Zlateva

Какви ключови услуги предлагате в тази сфера?

Имаме богат процесуален опит по дела за финансови корекции, които защитават бенефициерите срещу твърдения за нередности, конфликти на интереси и подобни. Успешно защитаваме бенефициерите и при отказ за верификации на средства от европейските фондове. Правната помощ, която можем да предоставим, включва целия кръг от правоотношения – от момента, в който се вземе решение за участие в проект, търг, обществена поръчка, до момента на изпълнението. През последните 4 години сме били процесуални представители по над 200 съдебни дела, свързани с проекти с европейско финансиране.

Кои са най-важните мерки и ходове, които предприемате, когато Ваш клиент обжалва класирането при обществена поръчка пред КЗК или съда?

Първата ни задача е да се запознаем с фактите. След това изграждаме защитна теза и внимателно проучваме съдебната практика. Стъпвайки на това и на опита си, винаги обмисляме и преценяваме възможните сценарии. Понякога съветваме клиента си да не обжалва. Обжалването не е еднократен акт и винаги следва да се мисли в контекст. Винаги търсим най-добрия начин да защитим правата и законните интереси на клиента, и работим според най-високите стандарти в професионалната етика.
