Kiril Bougartchev


After he graduated from St Jean de Passy, Kiril Bougartchev studied at Université Paris II Panthéon-Assas.

He has post-graduate diplomas in Business Law (Magistère) and in Tax Law (DESS). He first worked as an intern at l’Oreal in Paris and carried out several internships at renowned US law firms (Coudert Brothers, etc.) and securities brokers (Morgan, Olmstead, Kennedy & Gardner), before he started his career in 1988 as an auditor at Arthur Andersen. A year later, after his final internship at Jean Veil et Associés, he joined Gide Loyrette Nouel where he became partner in 1999 in the Litigation and White Collar Crime department. He joined Linklaters in June 2007 where he was made co-head of the Dispute Resolution practice in Paris and facilitator of the Linklaters Global White Collar Crime Group.

Since his admission to the Paris bar, Kiril has been involved in numerous civil, commercial, criminal and regulatory (particularly before the Autorité des Marchés Financiers and the Autorité de Contrôle Prudentiel et de Résolution) disputes. His areas of expertise include notably the energy, insurance, defence and aerospace sectors as well as the banking industry.

Kiril has been involved in many notorious white collar crime cases, including sensitive political and financial matters. He is notably advising a Swiss bank and its chief executive prosecuted in France on grounds of aggravated laundering of the proceeds of tax fraud committed by a former Minister. He is also assisting an armaments company in connection with a criminal investigation opened following an attack in Asia in the early 2000s.

In January 2016, Kiril and his team implemented in a money-laundering matter the first plea bargaining ever in the French Financial Public Prosecutor’s history.

He also represented major firms and their management in large-scale matters relating to industrial and environmental accidents (explosion at a refinery, accident during a Universal Exhibition, various matters on pollution and abandoned waste…).

Kiril was formerly a Secrétaire de la Conférence des Avocats of the Paris Bar and successively an outside lecturer and examiner in white collar crime at Paris II University (Magistère de Juriste d’Affaires DJCE) and a lecturer in international criminal procedure at Montpellier University (Master programme in Criminal Law) between 2004 and 2007. Since 2011, Kiril Bougartchev is an external contributor and examiner at EDHEC Business School (MSC Legal and Tax Management).

He has been a member of the Working Committee on decriminalisation of business criminal law and companies’ competitiveness of “Paris Europlace”. In this regard, he has been working on the reform of Article 145 of the Code of Civil Procedure (French discovery) and on the French guilty plea mainstreaming. His recent publications include articles in relation to the misuse of corporate assets, corruption, auditors’ criminal liability, business secrecy. He is also the co-author of the French chapter of the Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption Review (Law Business Research, 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015) and the French chapter of a comparative law book about the offence of corruption which will be published by Oxford University in 2017.

Kiril is viewed as “an expert in white collar crime, very involved in his matters” (Chambers) and “trustworthy”, “very customer-oriented and creative” with “a very high level of strategic vision” that makes him “an ally of choice in tough matters” (Legal 500), a “formidable advocate” commended for its “world-class White Collar Crime practice” (Who’s Who Legal). Since 2007, Kiril is ranked as “Essential” in several categories such as White Collar Crime, Commercial and Financial Litigation and Regulatory Litigation by Décideurs where he is also listed amongst the “great strategists”.

In 2009 and 2016, Kiril and his team were named “White Collar Crime Team of the Year – France” by Décideurs at the Trophées du Droit. In 2013, Kiril was named “Lawyer of the Year – France” in Criminal defence by Best Lawyers.

Kiril co-founded the Bougartchev Moyne Associés law firm in January 2017.

Emmanuel graduated from Université Paris V René Descartes with a post-graduate diploma in Business Law (DESS), from Université Paris II Panthéon-Assas with a diploma in Comparative Law and from Université Paris I-Sorbonne with a post-graduate diploma in African Studies – Legal Anthropology.

He carried out several internships at companies active in financial management (Thorp), accounting (Guyot Varona & Associés) and audiovisual production (Générale d’Images, Gaumont SA, France 3) and at law firms in France (Rambaud Martel, Duclos Thorne Mollet-Viéville) and Canada (Michalakopoulos & Associés).

After his final internship at Rambaud Martel in 1996, he started his career as an in-house counsel at an asset management firm, White Gestion SARL, a subsidiary of Goldman Sachs, and joined the Paris bar the same year. Then, he practiced for ten years within the Litigation and White-Collar Crime department of Gide Loyrette Nouel, before joining as a Counsel the Dispute Resolution practice of Linklaters in 2007.

Emmanuel has been involved in white collar crime matters, in civil and commercial disputes as well as in industrial and environmental accidents. He advices his clients in complex procedures that may involve several foreign jurisdictions and may concern, among other issues, misuse of company assets, breach of trust, swindle, laundering, misappropriation of data and secrets, counterfeiting, cybercrime, endangering life, manslaughter and unintentional injuries, pollution, abandoned waste or infringements relating to classified installations and nuclear facilities.

His areas of expertise include sectors like energy, defence, aerospace, chemicals, hotels, luxury and art as well as the banking industry.

Emmanuel has been involved in notorious white collar crime matters, including sensitive financial and political matters, and environmental criminal matters.

In particular, he successfully represented a large industrial group in civil and criminal disputes against environmental NGOs, a major public institution following misappropriation of around 8.5 million euros by a former accountant or a renowned international hotel group to which its former counsel claimed around 20 million euros success fees for lost opportunities. He also obtained a ruling from the Criminal Chamber of the Cour de cassation extending damage to property to every intangible property capable of appropriation, including all audiovisual records.

He also advices clients in sensitive bribery matters and contributed to the drafting of anti-corruption legislation in a foreign country.

He led several internal investigations and he assists large firms regarding the design, the content and the implementation of their internal procedures.

Emmanuel was a Secrétaire de la Conférence des Avocats of the Paris bar in 2000, in which year he pleaded as a duty lawyer for around seventy clients before correctional and criminal courts.

Emmanuel successively taught extradition proceedings and international criminal cooperation from 2004 to 2007 as part of the Master 2 Criminal practices at the Montpellier University and environmental criminal law from 2008 to 2013 as part of the Master 2 Environmental Law at the Sceaux University. He participates in the training of agents from the Ministry for culture and its regional directorates.

Emmanuel is the co-author of various articles on the European Arrest Warrant, the protection of business secrets, bribery and criminal risk management. He is also the co-author of the French chapter of the Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption Review (Law Business Research, 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015) and From ‘Baksheesh’ to Bribery : Examining the Global Fight Against Corruption and Graft (Oxford University Press, forthcoming).

As efficient in advising as in representing before courts“, Emmanuel, “whose strategy in matters is never found defeated“, is viewed as “a sharp mind, dedicated to his clients at any time, paying very close attention to every detail of the file, with such an analytical sharpness that he stands out as a reference counsel for strategic matters” (Legal 500). Décideurs Magazine ranks him among “Essential” lawyers in white-collar crime and “Excellent” ones in commercial litigation and international investigations.

Emmanuel co-founded the Bougartchev Moyne Associés law firm in January 2017.
