Kristof Ferenczi, Head of Kinstellar’s firm-wide Energy & Natural Resources practice, has been appointed Managing Partner of the firm's Budapest office.

Ferenczi replaced outgoing Managing Partner Csilla Andreko, who led Kinstellar's Budapest office for all of its 11 years following Linklaters' withdrawal from Hungary in January 2007 (she was also MP of Linklaters for some time before it left the market). Although stepping down as Managing Partner, Andreko will continue as head of Kinstellar’s Banking, Finance and Capital Markets practice, both in Hungary and regionally.

“I am proud and honored to be entrusted with this leadership role,” commented Ferenczi. “I am confident that alongside the other partners and the committed, talented, and dynamic team in our Budapest office, we will continue to deliver outstanding client service.’’

Ferenczi holds a 2000 degree in law from Eotvos Lorand University in Budapest, and he first joined legacy Linklaters in 2001. After almost four years at the firm he moved to Mathe Matrai Hayhurst Robinson, where he spent a year, and then spent a year with DLA Piper before returning to Linklaters in January 2006.

“Our Budapest office is recognized as one of the top law firms in Hungary," commented Andreko. "I am proud of our excellent team and what we have achieved so far. We have been contemplating this change for some time and the handover to Kristof is taking place at a time of growth and continued success following the office’s first 11 years as a part of Kinstellar. Kristof represents management continuity in Budapest, and I am absolutely sure that the office will continue to prosper and thrive under his leadership.”
