Dentons named Law Firm of the Year in Hungary at the EuropaProperty CRE Awards

Budapest, February 3, 2020 – Dentons was named Law Firm of the Year at the 3rd annual EuropaProperty CRE Awards held on January 30 in Budapest. The award recognizes the Firm’s outstanding achievements in the commercial real estate market in Hungary and the entire Central and Eastern European region. Our Real Estate practice group was awarded for its position in the commercial property market, making Dentons not only the pre-eminent law firm, but also the top-ranked firm in the field of real estate legal services overall last year.


The Budapest Real Estate group, headed by partner Judit Kővári, is one of the most highly regarded real estate teams in Hungary and CEE. The team has demonstrated its legal knowledge and innovative approach in major transactions in Hungary and the region, such as the sale of Accor’s majority stake in Orbis, the sale of Sofitel Chain Bridge Hotel by Starwood, and Skanska’s sale of its Mill Park office project.


Judit Kővári commented: “We are particularly honored to receive this award, as this recognition comes directly from the market. The jury that selected us above others includes top managers, general counsel and representatives of major Hungarian and international companies.”


Marcell Szőnyi, partner of Dentons’ Budapest Real Estate group, added: “We are truly delighted, as this award is a testament to the standout service our team in Budapest has delivered to our clients over the last year.”
