Legal Staff | Hungary

What we do

Allen & Overy opened its Budapest office in 1993. With offices in Bratislava, Bucharest, Prague and Warsaw, we are one of the most important players in the legal market in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE).

Unlike many other law firms, Allen & Overy will continue to be the leading law firm in in Hungary and across the region. We act for a wide range of Hungarian and international clients providing comprehensive legal advice on Hungarian, English and European law in all major practice areas.

Continual development is one of the major elements of a successful legal career. It plays an important role in meeting client requirements and in contributing to our worldwide strategy. To become an experienced lawyer with us, you need to have a high standard of legal skills, such as problem analysis and judgment, creativity, as well as the necessary 'soft' skills like strategic and persuasive thinking and the ability to listen well. Progress in terms of legal knowledge, interpersonal skills and work experience is reflected in grades and positions within the worldwide network.

Our primary duties are to provide a service to our clients and develop Allen & Overy's professional standing. In this context, however, we acknowledge a strong responsibility to the individuals with whom we work and the communities in which we operate. As a consequence, we run pro bono and community projects in which employees are encouraged to participate.
