Lexology acknowledged Victoria for client service excellence in the practice area of construction. Their Client Choice recognizes those law firms and partners around the world that stand apart for the excellent client care they provide and the quality of their service. The criteria for this recognition focus on an ability to add real value to clients' business above and beyond the other players in the market. Uniquely, law firms and partners can only be nominated by corporate counsel.

"We are grateful for our clients' testimonials and their continued trust in our firm. We will keep our commitment to deliver excellence in our practice and to grow our attention and care for the client’s  interests ", Victoria declared.

Victoria's work coordinating the BACEA expert team which translated into Bulgarian the book Conditions of Contract for Plant & Design-Build has also recently come to fruition with the publication of this book in paper format. The compendium is a second edition, reprinted in 2022, and amended by a team of professionals in construction law - members of the Bulgarian Society of Construction Law (BSCL).

"Many thanks to all the team members - Adriana Spassova, Bianca Veleva, Boyana Milcheva, Georgi Vladov and Yordan Minkov - for the shared experience. On behalf of all members of the task group thank you to BACEA for the trust and cooperation and to FIDIC - International Federation of Consulting Engineers for the support and valued guidance during our work on the translation", Victoria said upon the book's launch.

Victoria Penkova is a member of BACEA, the Bulgarian Association of Consulting Engineers and Architects, founded in October 1999. BACEA is the only organization in Bulgaria to bring together the companies exercising construction supervision and consultant activity. The public activity of the Association, as well as the fact that it is very often the initiator of joint standpoints on issues important for the colleagues from this field, makes the Association a very valuable factor in the Bulgarian public space, along with other professional organizations in the design and construction area.
