Update to Hungarian product fee legislation
An amendment now applies the environmental product fee to non-Hungarian companies making distant sales to Hungarian customers.


As market leaders in M&A, real estate and competition law, we advise clients on some of the most significant transactions in Central and Eastern Europe. Our accomplishments include representing Germany's Stratec Biomedical in its acquisition of Budapest-based hematology systems specialist Diatron, and advising a US-based global real estate investment group on its acquisition of a shopping mall and office buildings in Budapest — the largest commercial real estate transaction in Hungary since the global financial crisis.

We also represent one of Hungary's largest commercial banks in the appeal of a 4 billion forint (EUR 12.6 billion) fine the Hungarian Competition Office imposed on the Hungarian Bank Association and the International Training Center for Bankers for operating a database that regulators say allowed banks in Hungary to share confidential information.

With more than 25 years of experience in the Hungarian market, we are ranked Band 1 by Chambers Europe for Antitrust & Competition, Corporate/M&A, Employment, Healthcare and Private Equity. The quality of our work is reflected not only in our rankings, but in the number of multinationals, blue-chip Hungarian companies, government agencies and international investment banks that seek our advice on a range of issues.

Many of our lawyers have studied abroad and are attuned to meeting the diverse needs of Hungarian and foreign clients. As well as being fluent in English, our lawyers speak German, French, Spanish, Italian, Croatian, Serbian, Japanese, Chinese and Russian. No matter the legal or business challenge, we work with colleagues across all of our offices to help clients achieve their local and global objectives.
