Csaba Rusznak has joined KNP Law Nagy-Koppany Lencs & Partners to lead the firm’s Dispute Resolution Practice Group. At the same time, Oliver Koppany has joined the firm as Foreign Legal Counsel.

Rusznak is a US-qualified international arbitration lawyer who specializes in representing parties in investment arbitration proceedings, as well as in litigation before US courts. Previously, he worked as an international arbitration lawyer at Arnold & Porter. In May 2020, Hungary appointed him to the ICSID Panel of Arbitrators and Conciliators (as a conciliator). Earlier in his career, Rusznak served as a law clerk to several courts in Louisiana and West Virginia.  

Koppany moved back to Budapest from Washington, D.C. to join the firm. He is an attorney and a member of the U.S. District of Columbia Bar, in addition to being a registered Foreign Legal Advisor with the Budapest Bar Association. He is a dual American-Hungarian citizen currently working on issues involving cross-border pharmaceutical transactions, including CEE regulatory approvals, as well as actively involved in advising clients on cross-border commercial real estate transactions. Prior to returning to Hungary, he gained experience during law school in Willkie Farr & Gallagher’s Global Trade & Investment Practice Group, as well as with Hogan Lovells and Foley & Lardner.

According to the firm, Koppany is “also responsible for several business development tasks at KNP Law, in addition to learning management skills and assisting in the day-to-day operations of the firm.” KNP Law Managing Partner Kornelia Nagy-Koppany stated that: “Oliver brings a new energy into the office. He is a part of the new generation of lawyers who bring a progressive outlook and dynamic approach to our management and operation.”

“Growing up, I spent my afternoons after school in the conference room of KNP Law, and it feels surreal to be back after planning this moment for so many years,” Koppany added. “I am thrilled to be in the city, the amazing Palazzo Hunyadi where KNP moved last year, surrounded by the historical Buda Castle area. It is a true privilege to work with such an amazing and motivated team.”
