Overview

Dentons offers one of the largest and most experienced teams of M&A and private equity lawyers on the ground in Hungary. We advise on landmark cross-border, regional and domestic transactions from our Budapest office and cover both the domestic law and English law aspects of any M&A or private equity deal.

Our team represents global and domestic corporates, emerging regional corporates, financial institutions and private equity firms and their portfolio companies in their strategic transactions in Hungary and across the region. Our core M&A/PE group consists of 13 lawyers with a further ten lawyers in areas such as banking, competition, labor, real estate and TMT who frequently work on M&A/PE transactions.

Unlike most of our competitors in the Hungarian legal market, our team regularly acts as the main transaction counsel on many of the most significant M&A deals across the region (from Poland to Turkey), regularly going up against the London offices of the Magic Circle and Silver Circle, as well as leading US firms. This exposure gives us a special edge when it comes to our clients’ mid-market deals in Hungary, where we are able to bring to bear the very latest in sophisticated techniques to help them achieve their commercial goals.
