Dispute Resolution

Our dispute resolution team is one of the most recognised among Hungarian law firms. We regularly advise Hungarian and foreign market participants on matters handled by state courts, arbitration or other alternative dispute resolution solutions. We implement sector-specific, innovative strategies to minimise the risks of our clients. We understand that litigations significantly hinder the operation of all parties involved; therefore our goal is to take all possible burdens of the litigation off the shoulders of our clients so that they can concentrate on their business. When advising our clients, we place emphasis on solutions that help to avoid litigations both when drafting agreements and also later when disputes have already emerged. Chambers, Legal500 and IFLR1000 rank our banking and finance department and several of its members.
