We’re up there again in this year’s Legal500 rankings

Legal500, one of the most prestigious publications that rates law firms around the world, has recently published its rankings for 2020. In some areas of our practice, our firm maintained its position of last year, and in other areas, we were promoted in the rankings.

We were pleased to see that our Tax practice is still regarded as a market leader. And in 2020 our Real Estate practice was ranked close to the top, as were our M&A and our Banking & Finance practices. It was also gratifying to see that after a year of challenging and successful work, our litigation practice earned a place in the rankings.

We’re proud of our lawyers, several of whom are mentioned by name in the Legal500 rankings. The publication specifically mentions Pál Jalsovszky and István Csővári as ’leading individuals’ in their respective practices, while Tamás Fehér and Péter Gyimesi are mentioned as ’next generation partners’.

In four days we skied a total of 114 km and laughed for countless minutes. JalsovSKI you were great, see you next year.

On a board in the middle of Lake Balaton…

Community, sport, active relaxation – these were the defining themes of our office sports weekend. This year, it was down to Lake Balaton, where one of our biggest challenges was simply staying upright on our stand-up paddle boards. Not as easy as it looks! But all four of us falling into the water at once was certainly an experience to remember!

We enjoyed the activity, and recommend it to anyone that fancies having fun and literally “chilling out” in a natural setting!
