Hungary's Ban Karika law firm has joined Act’s Legal's European alliance.

Following the addition of Ban Karika — and the addition of Fort Advocaten from the Netherlands, which also joins — Act Legal now operates 13 offices in Europe. 

Martin Randa, Managing Partner at Randa Havel Legal in Prague, said: "We are very pleased to welcome Fort Advocaten and Ban Karika to Act Legal. The professionalism, expertise and working methods of both firms fit in seamlessly with those of other Act Legal offices, and the fact that these two firms are joining Act Legal will further strengthen our position as renowned legal advisor to a demanding corporate clientele."

Pieter Twaalfhoven, Managing Partner at Fort Advokaten added: "In recent years we have seen that our clients are increasingly going global, while demand for legal advisory in markets outside the Netherlands is growing. By joining act legal, we can address these needs even better and offer our clients advice in most of the key European countries. It’s an important step ahead, both for our clients and Fort.”

Gergely Ban, Managing Partner at Ban Karika, commented: “We have more and more become an international law firm, with a growing number of foreign clients and an increasing count of cross-border M&A deals. Joining a growing legal alliance like Act Legal is just a perfect fit for us and our clients alike.”

Act Legal reports that it "aims to further expand into other European countries in the coming years, with special focus on Southern Europe and Scandinavia."
