What is your role at the DIS?
Since 1 May 2023 I am Counsel at the German Arbitration Institute (DIS). In this role with the support of my colleagues – counsels and case administrators, we make sure that all arbitrations and other proceedings under the various DIS rules run smoothly, efficiently and end with enforceable legal acts.
What path led you to the DIS?
In 2020 I graduated an LL.M. degree in International Dispute Resolution at the Humboldt University of Berlin. One of the subjects was Special Areas of Arbitration which included also studying the 2018 DIS Arbitration Rules. Since then I have always been somehow connected with the DIS. Even though I was working as a lawyer in the past two years in the largest international law firm in Bulgaria, I kept an eye on DIS. When I recently received the opportunity to start working for them as Counsel I was very happy. Despite of the fact that I had to realocate to Germany I did not need much time to accept the offer.
