Wolf Theiss

HUNGARY

A lively hub of business right in the heart of Europe, Hungary has much to offer businesses and investors in a wide range of sectors. Its advantageous location, diversely skilled labour force and open economy - which has profited from substantial foreign investments - mean one thing: Hungary is open for business.

Since 2007, the experts at Wolf Theiss Budapest have harnessed their local and international experience to resolve complex domestic and cross-border matters. We specialise in helping foreign investors plan for success, whether they want to set up new businesses, acquire equity or assets from existing businesses, or arrange joint ventures with partners in Hungary and throughout CEE/SEE.

For us at Wolf Theiss Budapest, the needs of our clients and the demands of their industry determine how we advise in investment and business law, particularly in mergers and acquisitions, banking and finance, restructuring, as well as projects and infrastructure – all in combination with first class tax advice if so desired. As a bonus, our niche expertise in the regulated industries, such as energy, banking, telecommunications or life sciences, means that we can help you stay up-to-date on the latest in these exciting fields.
