2012 Chambers & Partners, Corporate/M&A
Forgó, Damjanovic & Partners offers clients specialist corporate/M&A advice, which is recommended by The European Legal 500 (Tier 2) and PLC Which Lawyer.
Our partners’ extensive track record includes acting for Hungarian and international blue-chip, i.e. listed, companies, private equity and venture capital investors, leading corporate finance firms and high-net worth individual owners of target companies. We regularly act as lead counsels on cross-border transactions in conjunction with foreign legal advisors, and on transactions referred to us by international law firms.
We are typically instructed by clients in complex medium-sized or high-value transactions, mostly of a cross-border nature and requiring heavy documentation.
In M&A assignments we combine a thorough knowledge of UK/US type transactional documentation with the realities of doing business in Hungary and ensure that everything written down is legally enforceable in Hungary. Moreover, we play a significant role in bridging the cultural gap between the transactional requirements of sophisticated western investors and the expectations of the owners of Hungarian businesses.
Practice head, Zoltán Forgó, has earned recognition as a recommended individual for his corporate/M&A work by European Legal Experts and PLC Which Lawyer for a number of consecutive years. Our firm’s other senior partner, Gábor Damjanovic, is also recommended as a corporate/M&A lawyer by European Legal Experts. The senior partners are supported by a sizeable team of senior and junior lawyers, thus enabling us to carry out significant due diligence exercises and parallel mandates.
Our law firm is an associate member of the Hungarian Venture Capital Association.
We offer a full scale of services in the areas of Corporate Law and Mergers & Acquisitions, including:
