The firm expands its international coverage
Our firm has recently joined two international legal networks.
Our office has recently become a member of the US-based, International Legal Network (ILN) (www.ilntoday.com). The New Jersey-based legal alliance’s was established in 1988 with the aim to build a worldwide network of co-operating, middle-sized commercial law firms. By now, ILN has almost 100 member firms and 5,000 lawyers worldwide. Beside America, ILN is present Asia, Middle-East and Europe (in 19 countries) and the activity of its members covers all area of commercial law. Alan Griffith, Executive Director of ILN has commented the accession of Jalsovszky Law Firm: “We're thrilled to have Jalsovszky joining the ILN as our member firm in Hungary. The firm has an unmatched reputation for excellence and client service, and their lawyers are recognized leaders in their fields. With the addition of Jalsovszky, we are expanding the knowledge and experience available to our member firms and their clients."
In addition to ILN, our office has just joined the network of Law&Numbers, a community of dynamic, medium-sized law firms focusing on taxation (www.law-and-numbers.de). Although Law&Numbers is present in 10 countries only, due to its special tax focus it will play an important role in the professional activity of our office.
By joining the above networks, our law firm has entered into a new phase of its development and became an internationally acknowledged firm. This will provide several advantages to our clients, too. In the future, in multi-jurisdictional matters we will be able to rely on foreign law firms which can provide the same quality advice as we do. Further, through our membership in the networks we may access to a continuously updated knowledge database, which we can exploit in our day-to-day advisory.
The managing partner of our firm, Pál Jalsovszky held a successful presentation on 16 January 2014 on the changes to Hungarian tax laws coming into effect in 2014.
Unexpectedly great success at the sixth Hungarian Law Firm Soccer Tournament
Last week Wolters Kluwer handed out its traditional legal awards where our office was crowned in the tax section. Receiving this prize is a real honour for us, due to the fact that this section generally draws the biggest competition among the participants.
