• Corporate M&A

Mergers and Acquisitions

The relationship between several companies, the merger and splitting of them are almost as exciting, tangled and multifaceted as human relationships. And for every situation we need to find the best possible legal solution.

As an experienced market participant, we know everything about both acquisitions and sales.


We work for companies aiming at growing and expanding, that want to enter the market in the Hungarian and Central European region by acquiring companies. We have extensive experience in bringing together and managing the work of multi-country teams of attorneys. Our clients are foreign companies, multinational companies, Hungarian listed companies, private equity funds and Hungarian private investors.


Our clients are medium- and large-sized Hungarian companies, which generally attract foreign buyers. Whether it is a full or partial sale of a company, our team has already conducted numerous transactions. In other words, we know all the ins and outs of these types of transactions.

„Exceptional team providing international professional standards and outstanding sector know-how combined with flexibility and personal touch.” - Legal500 EMEA 2023

More than legal advice

During an acquisition or a merger process we almost need to breathe together with the client. We have to pay close attention to their intentions, we must know their strengths and weaknesses, and as a result we will know exactly when and how we can help them.

We understand business

Our clients are businessmen, so we have to become businessmen as well when we manage the legal part of the transactions.

International experience

Most of our cases go beyond borders, so we have learned how to work with foreign law firms and how to manage the work of a team of international lawyers.

János Tamás Varga

managing partner

"Perhaps the most important rule in this area is that we must be able to think with the head of the client."


András Lovretity

head of the M&A team

“Every merger and every acquisition are different. Extensive experience counts for lot when a quick and appropriate reaction is needed.”


Hoa Tünde Nguyen


“We always try to understand the commercial side of the deal, because that's the only way to get the best solution."


Nándor Beck


“The devil is in the detail - that's true for any sale and acquisition process. That's why a good lawyer should know every detail of the transaction."

Chambers’ publication, ranking European law firms, has praised our firm once again, highlighting our work in corporate M&A, Employment, and Technology & Media & Telecoms (TMT). Our firm’s clients gave excellent feedback about our lawyers’ experience, their approach to business, and the way they view cases as a whole embedded in the respective business and legal environments.


We know everything

Legal500 EMEA 2021

In our M&A practice, we catch our star. The publication pointed out that, in whatever segment the transaction takes place, we have an expert in every field. If it is competition law, we have Andrea Belényi. If it is IP, it is Tamás Virág. If it is corporate law, step forward Zoltán Csernus. András Lovretity, the head of our M&A team, brings the team together perfectly.

‘In addition to the qualities of the individuals working in the practice, they have the right person for all M&A deal segments. Also, it is very good working with them in the human sense. They generally understand business and they do translate legal into business. I do not come across legal advisory service at such high level elsewhere.’
