Firm Details

Szecskay Attorneys at Law was founded in 1992 and has grown to be a market-leading, independent Hungarian law firm with an extensive international practice, which is consistently top-ranked in all major legal rankings publications (IFLR, Chambers and Legal500).  

Our legal work covers a full spectrum of industry, trade and services. We provide tailored solutions to a diverse multinational and local client base, primarily made up of domestic and international mid-sized and major companies, who are market leaders in the fields of energy, consumer goods, financial and investment services, real estate, manufacturing, printing, packaging, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, automotive, outsourcing and biotechnology.  

We have developed strategic relationships with other key legal professionals worldwide to provide a full range of services for today's complex and globalised business environment. We cooperate with highly reputed correspondent firms all over the world by participating in respected international networking channels. Able to draw on these strong connections, we are in the position to comprehensively provide cross border legal services in any international transaction on which we are mandated and to serve the continuous legal advisory needs of regional clients and businesses expanding abroad from Hungary.  

In addition to Hungarian lawyers, we have foreign attorneys admitted to practice in England & Wales, France, Germany and the US. Our highly personalized and service-oriented team is able to provide efficient and comprehensive legal consultancy services in English, French, German and Hungarian.  

Many of the Firm's attorneys have served and continue to serve in leadership positions at the Hungarian Bar Association, the Budapest Bar Association and in other international associations of legal professionals (UIA, IBA, AIJA, UAE, LIDC, AIPPI, LES, etc.). Furthermore, our managing partner has been serving as Head of the Hungarian Delegation to the CCBE for many years. Our attorneys also hold prominent positions in other domestic professional law associations that relate to their particular areas of expertise (such as the Hungarian Association for the Protection of Industrial Property and Copyright (MIE)) and are deeply involved in professional industry associations and foreign chambers of commerce in Hungary in order to better understand client needs and to share experience (such associations include the Hungarian Outsourcing Association (HOA), the Hungarian Advertising Association (MRSZ), the Hungarian Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (HVCA) and the American, Canadian, Dutch and other chambers of commerce). Our colleagues are frequent lecturers at conferences, hold various teaching positions and regularly publish articles in both Hungarian and international legal publications.  

In 2012 we were successful in winning the 2012 Corporate Intl Magazine Global Award for the category "Alternative Dispute Resolution, Advisory Firm of the Year in Hungary". Our recent recognition include also the awards of "Legal Advisor of the Decade" (Hungarian Venture Capital Association, 2011), the "International Law Office Clients Choice Award" (2010) and "Corporate INTL Corporate Advisory Law Firm of the Year in Hungary" (2010).
