Partner Akos Fehervary has been elected as the new Managing Partner of the Baker McKenzie Budapest office, as of July 1. Fehervary takes over the position from Partner Zoltan Hegymegi-Barakonyi, who led the operation for the past nine years.

According to Baker McKenzie, “Akos is a highly qualified cross-border M&A lawyer, with substantial experience in the field of employment law, too. He is mainly active in the industries of oil and gas, automotive, energy/renewable energy, technologies, and pharmaceuticals. He also co-leads the office's China desk.” Fehervary started his legal career at Baker McKenzie in 1997, as a Junior Associate.

“It is an honor to have this opportunity and to lead the Budapest office,” commented Fehervary. “The bar is high, as I am taking over a very successful operation, but I am committed to further strengthening our businesses and organization.”

“After nine years, I am happy to hand over the Managing Partner position to a colleague who has earned the full trust of our partners based on his hard work and good performance over the years,” added Hegymegi-Barakonyi. “I am confident that Akos will successfully continue the work that was started 35 years ago, when Baker McKenzie opened the Budapest office, and he will further strengthen our firm's position in the Hungarian market of legal services. As for me, I intend to help him achieve these goals primarily by strengthening and developing our Competition and IP practices.”
