I have never felt a strong bias against me because I am a woman or a mother. Of course, striking the right balance between work and personal life can be a daunting task and is a constantly moving target, but with sufficient perspicacity, self-discipline and flexibility from the lawyer and the firm, it can work out.

I advise young female lawyers to try and gain as holistic as possible a view of all that happens in the technology/data/cyber space – this would give them a valuable perspective to client work, as well as to the evolution of law more generally.

Women account for close to half of the workforce in legal private practice in Bulgaria and, as a result, disparities (if any at all in the past) have largely been overcome.
