Five SEE Legal member firms provided legal support to BioIVT, a leading provider of biospecimens, research models, and drug and diagnostic development services, for the successful acquisition of Fidelis Research, an 85-site clinical biospecimen collection network in Southeastern Europe with headquarters in Sofia, Bulgaria.

BOYANOV & Co. coordinated the legal work of its SEE Legal partners from Divjak Topic Bahtijarevic & KrkaBDK AdvokatiNNDKP, and Kolcuoglu Demirkan Kocakli.

The transaction increased the scale and depth of BioIVT’s global operations by adding new clinical collection sites, predominantly hospital-based, focused on oncology, heme-oncology, and autoimmune cases. Special attention was paid to the preservation and further development of the relations with the leading members of the Fidelis staff.

BOYANOV & Co.’s team was led by our partner Yordan Naydenov and included Svetlina Kortenska (senior counsel), Mihail Vishanin (counsel), and Nedyalka Novakova (senior associate). 

Divjak Topic Bahtijarevic & Krka’s team comprising Managing Partner Emir Bahtijarevic and Attorneys Dina Salapic and Dominik Glavina performed due diligence on the target company and provided local corporate and regulatory advice.

BDK Advokati’s team consisted of senior partner Vladimir Dasic, senior associates Jelena Zelenbaba and Marija Gligorevic, and associate Bozidar Simovic.
