CEE Attorneys has expanded into two new markets, with the December 1, 2017 addition of the Stadler & Bellak Law Office in Hungary and Semper Legal Attorneys at Law in Ukraine.
According to CEE Attorneys, Stadler & Bellak was created at the beginning of 2017 as a result of the merger of the Tamas Bellak and Endre Stadler firms. Both lawyers have over 20 years of private practice, and CEE Attorneys describes their "long-lasting partnership dating back to when both worked in the multinational banking business in the 1990s."
"In essence, we wish to emulate the pattern of full service business law firms," commented Tamas Bellak in a press release distributed by CEE Attorneys. "We selected and established our areas of specialization on the basis of our experience over the past few decades, during which we established good working relationships with a number of solicitors and other business partners. In joining CEE Attorneys as their Hungarian partner, we aim to provide high-quality, cost-efficient legal services to clients in Hungary and elsewhere in the region."
Semper Legal has offices in both Kyiv and Lviv and has over 20 lawyers.
"Our main goal is to provide consistent legal support for our clients, asserting their rights in different legal areas," said Partner Vadym Ivanov, in that same CEE Attorneys press release. "By becoming a part of CEE Attorneys we open new opportunities for our clients to be represented all over Central and Eastern Europe."
"We are very happy to have found colleagues in Hungary and Ukraine who share a similar vision of the essentials required to develop a multinational legal service in Central and Eastern Europe and who wish to grow together," said Zdenek Tomicek, Founding Partner of CEE Attorneys.
CEE Attorneys now has 11 offices in Central and Eastern Europe, on the ground in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, and Ukraine, and Partner Offices in India and China.
