Balazs Fazakas has been appointed the new Head of Litigation and Dispute Resolution at Lakatos, Koves & Partners in Budapest.
LKT describes Fazakas as "a well-known and successful lawyer before the Hungarian courts and international fora." According to the firm, "he is experienced in arbitration, litigation, mediation, and regulatory investigations as well, [and he] takes the lead in the vast majority of our dispute resolution mandates and numerous M&A transactions.”
"The LKT Litigation and Dispute Resolution Group was enlarged and restructured due to an increasing number of mandates," noted Managing Partner Peter Lakatos, "as a positive response to our recent efforts to distinguish ourselves with an offering that combines our leading general dispute resolution expertise with sector- or practice area-specific knowledge. The new rules of Civil Procedure and Investment Protection in Hungary raised demand for highly-qualified professionals having a thorough understanding of the new system and a considerable routine in litigation planning and winner tactics. Therefore, we enlarged and reformed our team in line with these requirements and promoted Balazs Fazakas to be the head of the team, who started his career here at LKT."
"We pride ourselves in the training and promotion system we provide for our lawyers," added Senior Partner Peter Koves, "and Balazs is another successful example of this LKT idea.”
Fazakas has spent his entire career at Lakatos, Koves & Partners, having joined the firm in 2010 after graduating from the ELTE Faculty of Law in Budapest.
