WE ARE 10!
19 November 2018
We have arrived at a very important milestone in the history of our Office, and we are glad to inform you that this year we celebrate our 10th Anniversary. Looking back, our Office went through a long improvement until the formation of our present profile: providing legal support in domestic and international commercial law issues.
For the sake of this aim we have joined several organizations, such as the network of International Law Firms, the French-Hungarian Chamber of Commerce, and the BELGABIZ business club.
We are fortunate that the work in our Office is based on a harmonic cooperation with our Clients and Partners. The economic development of our Clients contributes to the improvement of our knowledge, so our work is never monotonous.
Our Office is also the member of SMC Partners Law Firm Association in which our Office maintains a good collegial relationship with dr. Katalin Melegh and dr. Márk Csanádi attorneys at law.
With regard to the strong cooperation, our Office invited the representatives of our Clients and Partners to a reception at the Radisson Blu Béke Hotel in order to celebrate this great moment together.
The evening was spent in a pleasant atmosphere, and hereby we would like thank all our Clients and Partners for attending the event, and the great music provided by Modern Music Session band, and the high quality service of the Radisson Blu Béke Hotel.
We hope that we will have an eventful period in the future similar to the past 10 years, and we can celebrate our 20th Anniversary with our Clients in a pleasant environment like this.
