  • "Professional and dedicated to the case!"

    Since we could not find an amicable agreement with our, now former, business partner in Hungary, the latter filed a court trial against Cablex. We contacted several law firms to help us with this case, but SMARTLEGAL Schmidt & Partners was the only one to state concretely and objectively what was the probability to win the case and what were the risks. All other firms, which we contacted, said that we would not have big chances to win, despite the fact that Cablex has respected all its agreements and Hungarian legislation. With the help of SMARTLEGAL, Cablex proved its right and won the case. We recommend SMARTLEGAL Schmidt & Partners as a serious and reliable legal support in legal disputes in Hungary.
