History of the Firm
Szabó Kelemen & Partners Attorneys traces its origins back to the firm of Szabó & Partners Attorneys, which was co-founded by Tamás Szabó in 1996. The original firm was established by lawyers working as part of the Tax and Legal Department of Ernst & Young Hungary, the majority of whom are still with the firm today. The firm was the Hungarian member firm of the Ernst & Young Alliance until 2003, and from 2004 worked in cooperation with Salans for two and a half years. The firm’s impressive client base consists of multinationals, as well as large and medium-sized Hungarian companies.
The firm is particularly strong in tax and corporate and commercial work, as well as in various industry sectors, including real estate and financial services. Many of the firm’s Hungarian lawyers have worked in law offices or barristers’ chambers abroad, and many have post-graduate qualifications from foreign institutions.
The firm’s objective is to provide integrated solutions for its clients according to the most exacting of standards. The working languages of the firm are Hungarian, English and German.
