Dispute resolution

Dispute resolution may seem from movies as an essential and exciting part of the work of attorneys-at-law.

We agree that litigation is exciting indeed, but it should be the last resort and avoided if at all possible. Even a settlement full of compromise may be better for the client than a victorious litigation with a final judgement which cannot be enforced in practice thus with no tangible benefit in the end. When providing advice, we always keep in mind the interest of our client and at all cost, aim to avoid going to court.

Litigation is not a goal but a tool to promote the client’s interests.

Zoltán Csernus


„If, despite any preliminary negotiation, we are forced to litigate, and we win at the court of first instance, instead of celebrating, we are open to negotiate with our adversary again. Celebration is only for a Supreme Court victory.”


János Tamás Varga

managing partner

„We need to use our capabilities in the most versatile way in litigation. The foundation is to be excellent professionals, but we also need thoroughness, perseverance, patience, conflict management skills, creativity, courage - and the list goes on.”


Andrea Belényi


„We place great emphasis on understanding our clients. When we negotiate with a client, we do not use incomprehensible legal language, and also, we fluently speak the language of the business.”
